The idea for this blog was conceived by Marshall Ma, who joined The ALS Group as a Risk Management Intern and now provides support on client accounts as Technical Analyst, based on the Chinese ideogram for “crisis”. It just happens that Marshall is fluent in Mandarin and is passionate about risk management. She is an Enterprise Risk Management Graduate and Lecturer at Columbia University. While at Columbia, Marshall spent a lot of time working on campus educating her peers and supporting industry outreach. She also participated in risk assessment and mitigation for the campus’ internal Career Design Lab.

Errors and even outright fraud in certificates of insurance is a growing problem. We encounter a 70% noncompliance rate on initial documents.
The certificate of insurance compliance function protects a company by ensuring that its contractors have appropriate types and amounts of insurance coverage. The burden of this compliance process is often underestimated.
