RiskAdvisor comes pre-loaded with industry-specific risk content, empowering you with cross-industry risk expertise and insights

RiskAdvisor provides you with valuable industry-specific risk areas, exposures, controls and treatments covering both insurable and non-insurable risks, across 60 different risk areas, for around 600 global industries.

Our content covers Hazard Risk, Enterprise Risk, and Work, Health and Safety

RiskAdvisor's pre-loaded risk content covers around 600 industries with key hazard risk data provided by our data partner A.M. Best. We also provide content to support Enterprise Risk and Work, Health and Safety risk assessments.

Within each industry you can select the risk areas to focus on during the assessment process.

RiskAdvisor is a simple, configurable workflow process for risk assessment and profiling

RiskAdvisor provides you with a simple, structured guide to conducting an assessment and creating a risk profile. 

The assessment process prompts you with industry-specific risk content to consider. RiskAdvisor can be White Labelled to reflect your brand and you can customise the workflow process to support your preferred style of engagement.

You can include or exclude assessment steps, rename the steps and even change the order in which they occur within the workflow.

RiskAdvisor prompts you with the key risk areas and exposures for consideration

RiskAdvisor provides you with the key areas of risk associated with the industry you select together with a set of risk exposures for each risk area. By simply ticking the box, an exposure is included in your profile. You can also add custom exposures.

Capture a comprehensive record of the status of your risk controls

RiskAdvisor enables you to record the status of your risk controls as being either In Place, Partially in Place, Planned or Not in Place. You can enter notes for each control and add your own custom controls if required.

Independent benchmarks and analytics

RiskAdvisor allows you to benchmark the hazard rating of each risk area against independent, industry benchmarks. These benchmarks have been developed by A.M. Best based on expert analysis together with risk data collected over a period of more than 100 years.

RiskAdvisor also generates additional hazard ratings and analytics for each of your risk areas based on the information you provide during the assessment process, using proprietary algorithms. You can name and customise RiskAdvisor's analytics as part of the White Labelling function to further enhance your brand.

RiskAdvisor is a modern, responsive web application with a consistent interface on any device

RiskAdvisor is a cloud-based, web application employing the latest technologies which means you'll have immediate access to your risk assessments on any device with an internet connection. Our responsive web application design provides you with a consistent user experience on any device, whether it's a laptop, an iPad, or an iPhone. 

Professional summarised views of your profile

RiskAdvisor instantly generates simple yet professional summary views of the assessment you've conducted allowing you to review your profile, at a glance, in a variety of ways. You can easily drill down into the detail of each risk area and examine the data or make adjustments on the fly.

For example, RiskAdvisor provides a Client Risk Matrix view in the form of a heat map of the hazard ratings calculated for each area of risk based on the business's view in terms of Consequence and Likelihood (based on AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009, Risk management – Principles and guidelines). 

RiskAdvisor Overview

Risk Profiles In Minutes

It only takes a few minutes to conduct an assessment for a business and create an industry-specific risk profile. RiskAdvisor has two modes: QuickRisk and DeepRisk. QuickRisk mode enables you to perform a very quick review of the risk content relating to perhaps just one or two risk areas of a business e.g. Cyber Liability for Online Retailers. Alternatively, DeepRisk mode supports a more thorough and detailed assessment.

Expert Risk Content

We have digitised over 150,000 risk exposures, controls and treatments. We've placed this wealth of information at your fingertips for easy use and consumption, within a consistent and standardised workflow process, enabling you to conduct risk assessments for businesses and immediately generate professional risk profiles. RiskAdvisor transforms you into a risk expert across 60 risk areas and around 600 industries in the domains of Hazard Risk, Enterprise Risk and Work, Health and Safety.

Benchmarks & Analytics

RiskAdvisor comes bundled with
independent, industry-specific benchmarks based on global hazard ratings for 60 key risk areas across around 600 industries. Global hazard ratings originate from independent sources such as A.M. Best. Further hazard rating and analytics are generated by RiskAdvisor's own algorithms. Our risk content is continually reviewed, updated and moderated by RiskAdvisor's technical analysts.

Professional Reports

Detailed reports are automatically generated at the end of your risk assessment process. All of the information you entered during the assessment process, together with the risk content you selected, is assembled into a professional and easy to read report, in MS Word format. You can also download a risk register representing the profile you've created in Excel.
