In addition, S.S. Nesbitt & Company has a team of dedicated professionals who support clients in the areas of personal insurance, employer-sponsored group benefits, and individual life and financial planning.
S.S. Nesbitt & Company’s risk-management professionals are uniquely qualified to offer claims-handling and loss-prevention services to their clients. In addition, their highly qualified Certified Insurance Consultants have developed a specialized niche in performing insurance assessments and compliance certifications for the student housing sector.
