Washington, DC February 5, 2015
Three leading insurance and risk management executives, with the backing of key strategic investors, announce the formation of Risk Cooperative, a strategy, risk and capital management firm. This firm takes a new approach, helping organizations use risk as a catalyst for growth rather than a cost of doing business.
Risk Cooperative was formed around the question what people would do in a world without risk? Using this as its guiding principle, Risk Cooperative aims to address the most pressing strategic questions of market expansion and innovation, strives to remove risk from management decisions, and works to level the playing field for small to mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the capital markets.
Risk Cooperative’s leadership team comes from one of the largest privately held international insurance brokerages. Leveraging this experience in global markets, Risk Cooperative will stand on three interconnected pillars of strategy, risk and investment, held together by financial, market and process priorities. With this philosophy, and applying its entrepreneurial spirit, Risk Cooperative will help clients execute strategy, innovate and invest where risk is not an obstacle. A full suite of services and solutions have been designed to help a broad set of customer segments.
“As a serial innovator and social enterprise, Risk Cooperative affords the opportunity to build a new breed of professional services firm, where profit and purpose are not in conflict,” said Dante Disparte, Founder and CEO at Risk Cooperative.
Risk Cooperative is headquartered in Washington D.C., alongside the American Security Project, a bi-partisan think tank started by Secretary of State John Kerry, and Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel.
