Partnering with action-oriented commercial insurance entities to redesign how we minimize risk and maximize the health of organizations and individuals

Insurance is the lifeblood of any developed economy, as it enables individuals, businesses, and even governments to transfer risk to further invest and grow. However, the insurance industry is notoriously archaic and is one of the last data-driven businesses to reinvent its model. To accelerate transformation, Third Horizon Strategies partners with action-oriented commercial insurance entities – both in the health and property/casualty sectors – to help redesign how we minimize risk and maximize the health of organizations and individuals. Through its vast network, the firm hears what is happening around the insurance industry and adjacent markets, and applies trends, viewpoints, and updates to advantage clients.
