J.D. POWER TEAMS WITH RIMS TO MEASURE CUSTOMER SATISFACTION AMONG RISK MANAGERS OF COMMERCIAL INSURERS AND BROKERS

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif.: — J.D. Power and RIMS, the risk management society, today announced an alliance to measure large business commercial insurer and broker satisfaction in the inaugural J.D. Power 2014 Large Business Commercial Insurance Satisfaction Study.SM The study is slated for publish in November 2014.

“We are excited to be working with RIMS to produce a study that will establish a set of key metrics for risk manager satisfaction,” said Jeremy Bowler, senior director of the insurance practice at J.D. Power. “The study will help insurers and brokers understand their own strengths and weaknesses—and those of their competitors—and build customer loyalty and increase competitiveness.”

The study will measure risk practitioners’ satisfaction with both their commercial insurers and the brokers who manage their insurance needs. Key industry trends and issues in the large business commercial market will be identified in order to provide an in-depth understanding of the needs, expectations and desires of today’s large business customers.  Additionally, the study will examine the performance of each profiled brand included in the study, highlighting competitive gaps and providing insights into opportunities for insurers and brokers to improve customer satisfaction, commitment and advocacy.  

Satisfaction is measured in four areas: commercial property insurance; workers compensation insurance; automotive insurance; and insurance broker performance. For a list of large business commercial insurers and brokers profiled in the study. (List on Page 3)

“RIMS has a responsibility to provide our global network of risk professionals with the knowledge to make prudent decisions that are critical to the success of their organizations,” said Mary Roth, RIMS executive director.  “This study will afford both buyers and sellers of insurance a new perspective on this highly competitive market. We are excited about our alliance with J.D. Power on this initiative and look forward to delivering the results to the industry.”

J.D. Power and RIMS will begin working together at the RIMS 2014 Annual Conference & Exhibition, April 27-30, 2014, in Denver, Colorado, at which time risk and financial managers will be given an opportunity to take the study survey.
