Founded in 1997 by CEO Mike Christian, Risk Strategies just celebrated its 20th anniversary with a rebrand from its former name, Risk Strategies Company. Risk Strategies was founded as a boutique risk management firm focused on alternative risk transfer for upper-middle-market clients. Today, the company’s experts help clients navigate insurance and risk management challenges across more than 25 practice areas, including employee benefits, executive liability, professional liability, environmental, life insurance, cyber risk, private client and more.
Throughout the years, Risk Strategies’ success has been fueled by both organic growth and strategic acquisitions, which have expanded its capabilities and offered access to new and broader markets and customers. In addition, Risk Strategies has brought additional risk management and technical resources to its large account practice by emphasizing analytics, risk control and claim advocacy.
