Small Business Supportive Services
BUSINESS GROWTH CONSULTING
At TCG, our approach toward business owner’s risk is essentially to control costs by managing risk. Every day, we assess, guide and service business owners regarding coverage appropriate for their specific needs. We help navigate the best solutions for each situation, and our carriers have the experience to provide a wide variety of industry specific solutions across the broad spectrum of issues.
Risk assessment by definition requires innate knowledge of business, in general, and specific knowledge and understanding of your business, in particular. Evaluating your needs in detail and protecting them fully is our mission, since proper assessment of risk is a critical component in the financial health of your company.
Over time, we’ve recognized that many business owners, especially small business and MWVBE owners, need more in-depth guidance and foundational support in order to launch and sustain healthy business practices. To fill those needs, we offer business planning and management services which address many facets necessary for organizational success. Through the use of rigorous discussion, analysis, coaching, and monitoring, we gain a crystallized view of your business to provide sound advice and direction for your overall business and protection needs.
Our President, David Cayemitte, in his delivery of this service, draws from many years of invaluable experience performing high-level risk management underwriting for Fortune 100 companies. His professionalism along with his personal commitment to mentorship, constantly inform the thoroughness of his approach. His seasoned and well experienced staff share his passion to provide unparalleled support and service.
These comprehensive and detailed planning services are structured as one-time fee, hourly fee structure, or on an ongoing fee basis, depending upon your needs.
Risk Management ServicesBuilding a good business foundation involves developing the proper infrastructure from the ground up. Establishing proper risk management strategies is critical to the strength of a business, both long and short term. Particularly for companies in the growth phase of development ($1 to $25 million in revenue), the management of risk is often completely neglected due to the cost involved. (Larger companies usually devote entire departments to risk management.) Smaller companies may make a strategic foundational error in neglecting this aspect of their business because they believe the cost of a risk manager is prohibitive. Later, as the business matures, this can prove to have been a key failure in planning for growth. Risks are always present and should always be addressed whether a business is in its infancy or maturity. Good habits bred early will trigger good outcomes later and pay dividends rather than festering problems. The solution: outsourcing of risk management as an efficient cost-saving measure. At TCG, we offer affordable fee/hourly-based risk management services to help protect your balance sheet now, and in the future.
Insurance and Risk AnalysisAre you one of the many business owners overlooking or avoiding the critical component of risk and insurance analysis? It’s a complicated and time-consuming area yet it is critical to the health of an organization. The first step in risk and insurance analysis is a demanding process of identifying potential financial and physical loss issues through fact finding. Secondly, transposing those findings into balance sheet exposures must be done to provide a clear picture of risk exposure and insurance needs. Many firms avoid this and focus solely on premium pricing. At TCG, we work closely with our business clients as an advisor to help give focus to this often neglected area of business risk. In our process of analysis, we measure, identify and, when appropriate, use insurance to reduce risks and the associated costs of risk. Ironically, an analysis may even reveal options to reduce exposure without the use and cost of insurance. Whether you’re managing, eliminating or transferring risk with insurance, we’ll help affirm which method or combination of methods best suits your business needs.
Bonding Assessment ServicesContractors often face many barriers to entry in securing bonding. And the jobs that need a bond are often the most lucrative, making for a frustrating “catch-22”. At TCG, we walk with you through this complicated process and guide you along the requirements to qualify for bonding. “Are you bondable?” is just the first of many detailed questions that must be answered. The Cayemitte Group’s staff has a depth and breadth of industry experience that provides the expertise to assist clients to qualify for the largest bonding programs possible. We take into account financial presentation, co-qualifications, contract history, contract size and experience to elevate your business to the next level of growth and opportunity. The Cayemitte Group has proudly assisted many firms in “crossing the bridge” from no bond line to securing bonding capacity that is significant and ongoing. As a first step, start the bonding pre-qualification process via our on-line portal.
