Towner Releases Terrorism Risk White Paper

Burlington, VT—Thanks to the federal government’s recent update of its terrorism risk bill and the commercial insurance industry’s response to terrorism risk, U.S. captive insurance companies have new opportunities to help reduce the potential financial impact of terrorism risk. So says captive insurance veteran Thomas P. Stokes in a white paper released by The Towner Management Group.

Stokes, Practice Leader, Risk Consulting for TMG and managing principal of The Towner Management Group (NY) LLC, details aspects of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Program Reauthorization Act, which extends and creates additional government insurance coverage for certain acts of terrorism. Stokes contends that for many companies, combining government protection with available commercial coverage and captive insurance may be the most cost-effective way to protect against this risk and limit exposure.
