  • Business Interruption Values and Exposures

    If you are like most companies, the annual ritual of filling out the business interruption worksheet is a nuisance administrative task.

However, the worksheet is woefully inadequate to explain the intricacies of most businesses and is biased to err on the high side – which usually means a higher premium for you. For a routine that is regularly glossed over, the results can have some pretty substantial consequences.
