Almost all large corporations have risk-management teams. A risk management analyst at a non-financial company will focus mainly on assessing how well the company's insurance works and how related costs can be contained. Typically, this involves examining liability insurance as it relates to customers and auditing the ways that customer claims are collected and filed. The analyst examines these processes and looks for trends in how claims may be paid by the liability insurers for the company, and works to determine if procedures can be adjusted to reduce settlements and payouts that affect premiums paid. Additionally, the analyst constantly examines the marketplace for the most cost-effective insurance solutions possible for his/her employer.
Risk management analysts also perform similar duties related to employee claims regarding injury, wrongful terminations, and other areas that may lead to insurance claims or litigation.
