GRP represents JLT International Network in India, thereby servicing all the global clients of JLT and its affiliated network, with a presence in India.
Global businesses require a global approach to risk protection. This can be a challenge where assets are internationally dispersed and growth is rapid. Usually insurance programs grow organically in response to the changing needs of the organization. Today’s Group Risk Manager must ensure that global insurance spend is efficient, local and global insurance programs are connected and provide an appropriate level of risk protection across all international businesses, and that the company is compliant with the myriad of constantly changing insurance regulations.
Questions such as the following become increasingly difficult to answer:
What local insurances do I have in place and how much do they cost?
What are the risks of non-compliance?
Am I aware of all local business activities and acquisitions?
What are the benefits of a global program?
Are there gaps or duplications between local and global programs?
Can I realize premium savings and coverage enhancements through program rationalization?
