Public entities are under budgetary constraints while facing complex challenges. Innovative strategies are needed to manage your unique risks cost-effectively.

Analytics, risk management, and local teams worldwide enable us to help you develop tailor-made risk financing strategies.

Public sector organizations are under increasing pressure to deliver services on a diminishing budget. Apart from the obvious operational challenge that this presents to your organization, strategically it is likely to drive a shift in your tolerance and appetite for risk. In budget-constrained environments, public sector entities must balance pursuing opportunities with addressing needs, such as aging infrastructure, disaster preparedness, law enforcement liability, and cyber risk preparedness.

Effective management of risk plays a key role in meeting these challenges. That’s where Marsh can help.
