Most entities have hundreds of different principal-agent relationships, all with varying levels of interdependence. Internal relationships include a supervisor (principal) and their employee (agent). External relationships include agents such as suppliers and insurance agencies and principals such as stockholders, banks, and communities.
Functioning entities and societies are built upon rules of law, ethics, and trust in these principal-agent interdependent relationships. As technology plays a more significant role in society, influencers through vehicles such as social media are disrupting the traditional asymmetric order.
At RISK TRANSPARENCY, we specialize in leveraging enterprise risk management approaches to help clients build value from improved awareness and management of key strategic and operational information.

Insurance Renewals - Improved awareness and sharing of information related to proactive risk management efforts for asset protection, quality, health and safety, environmental, cyber security, and directors and officers liability (D&O) can result in lower insurance premiums.
