Lyndhurst, NJ (PRWEB) September 2, 2009
Due to the number of inquiries SGRisk has received from agents and brokers regarding actuarial work, the company announces its new, one-of-a-kind service specifically designed for independent property-liability agents and brokers through its ActuarialQuest brand. The phone support program provides immediate answers to agents or brokers who have questions of an actuarial nature.
"Availability is the key," emphasizes Charles Gruber, FCAS, MAAA, President of SGRisk. "ActuarialQuest gives rapid access to an experienced individual who can answer questions about actuarial topics."
"For example, an agent may want to know whether clients' insurance premiums are reasonable. Another issue that often arises is how an agent can help clients explore alternatives to traditional insurance," says Mr. Gruber.
"It's a great idea," said Gary Granoff, former chief actuary for the Florida and Massachusetts insurance departments, who is helping SGRisk explain the unique service to associations. "It provides an essential resource to the insurance producer at a low monthly fee."
ActuarialQuest is a membership-based service costing $99 per month.
Members of ActuarialQuest receive:
- Access to an experienced individual who quickly responds to actuarial questions by telephone or e-mail.
- Benefit of obtaining analyzes, reports and opinions of credentialed actuaries at reasonable fees.
- Comfort of knowing that they can advise their clients on their actuarial needs.
"When I have a question or I want guidance from an actuary, I don't necessarily want to hire one for thousands of dollars," says Andrew Stergiou, Assistant Vice President at Tanenbaum-Harber, a large corporate insurance brokerage firm headquartered in New York City. "This service will give me what I need at a low cost."
The ActuarialQuest service is available by Web or by phone. For more information, please visit http://www.actuarialquest.com or call Ms. Janine Palermo, Actuarial Quest Director, at (888) QUEST 51.
