RIMS - Ask A Peer


Committed to Your Success

There is no better resource than a peer or professional who has been there. Through the RIMS Ask a Peer program, we can connect you with top risk professionals to address your concerns. Whether you want a review on the state of your current risk management practices or help with a specific issue, one or more of our advisors are ready to step up.

Our advisors are recruited by RIMS for their expertise on wide-ranging risk management and insurance-related matters. Meant to complement but not replace your risk management team, insurance brokers or consultants, our advisors provide independent, unbiased advice based on their years of practical experience.
