Workers Comp Investments Cycle Returns Anew
Most Workers Comp investments lie in my wheelhouse. Analyzing premiums as Workers Comp investments is why I obtained my ChFC instead of a CPCU. Mark Walls of OutFront ideas is the only other Workers Comp insurance person that examines/analyzes workers comp premiums from the same viewpoint.
Many times through the last 20+ years the Workers Comp Investments cycle returns every 4 – 5 years. How do I know of such a period?
I am consulted in each of those cycles at least ten times to render my opinion on the current Work Comp environment, especially the ancillary services such as bill review and rehabilitation nurses<one of my favorite risk management techniques.
Over the last two weeks and likely until the first of the year, I will be speaking with certain investment advisors concerning which TPA’s and ancillary service providers provide the best services for the money they charge their clients.
Looking at my calendars, four years ago was the last time the workers’ comp investment cycle increased massively.
Outside of the cycle, advisors will consult with me on a particular company – now usually a merger or takeover/buyout. A few times it will be one company’s expansion plans.
I cannot comment on the investment advisor companies or the companies which they look to provide capital for various reasons. My ChFC bars me from disclosing information and so do the investment advisors.
One can easily see what companies contribute to a Workers Comp investment cycle by following any of the various publications out there. Feel free to search for them on this blog. I have written two or three articles on which companies provide the best information for my needs.
Beware of one warning now in the WC world. Publications and bloggers exist that may call themselves soothsayers on matters in this niche’. No one knows all about the subject. Trust me on that one.
I was going to write more. However, I have to take a phone call from an investment advisory group. The Workers Comp investments world is buzzing.
