Insurance Agencies Enter Unique Joint Venture to Give Clients More

Two highly respected insurance agencies are joining forces to go beyond insurance for their clients. Business Benefits has entered a joint venture with West Chester agency, RiskSOURCE Clark-Theders, to offer clients custom solutions that address their specific insurance needs and ultimately create more favorable pricing for them in the marketplace.

Together they’ll help organizations elevate their overall risk profile, making them more productive. While Business Benefits’ focus is on Group Benefits, RiskSOURCE Clark-Theders specializes in Property & Casualty Insurance. The two are strategically integrating giving clients more rounded solutions and strategies to insurance needs.

The two companies already had very similar client philosophies. Both have a foundation built on going beyond the traditional bidding process for their clients, which became an imperative factor for the two working together in complete synergy. Business Benefits’ dynamic model addresses the employee benefit needs of large and small businesses. While RiskSOURCE Clark-Theders’ Beyond-Insurance process takes an engaging approach to identify, understand, implement, and monitor risk management strategies.

Culture was another factor in the merge. “Each company brings a history of technical expertise, but we’ve realized that we share the philosophy that going above and beyond the call of duty, is the call of duty,” says Jim Beatrice, president of Business Benefits, Inc.  With the two cultures coming together, not only will clients have access to additional solutions, they’ll get a team of caring professionals willing to go above and beyond to make sure their business succeeds. Now that’s insurance.
