Too many.

There are too many.

There are simply too many mass shootings in this country. We have all seen the heartbreaking pictures of the aftermath of these shootings—shootings at concert venues, at nightclubs, at houses of worship, and at schools. While we may have the victims of these shootings “in our thoughts and prayers,” the personal toll of such events is wide-spread, horrific, and lasting. This article does not intend to minimize that personal pain or loss. Rather, its purpose is to discuss the potential risks that businesses face in the aftermath of large scale violent events and to discuss the new insurance market products that can be used to moderate these risks.
