Property Risk Blind Spot

Companies are expanding the focus in quantifying supply-chain risk.

The rash of natural disasters this year spotlighted property damage as one of the key elements of supply-chain risk that companies must not only identify but quantify to achieve an effective risk/reward balance.

“Companies tend to focus on quality, costs inventory, margin pressures, the obvious things. But property risk has been a blind spot,” says Eric Jones, manager of the business risk consulting group at FM Global. “With all the property-related events that have occurred, companies are starting to recognize that blind spot.”
