Risk is endemic to properties. Fires, floods, slips, trips, and falls, and social inflation driving up litigation—just to name a few. Newfront understands the types of risk you face. From luxury condos to shopping centers, we build customized solutions to protect your portfolio.
Whether you’re an owner, developer, or manager, our team acts as a proactive partner identifying exposures, streamlining coverage, and optimizing your whole portfolio’s risk-management strategy.
We conduct a thorough evaluation of your risk profile to help mitigate common exposures, vet tenant contracts, and more. With our in-house loss control team, we work to reduce your liability through proactive advocacy.
Weather events and catastrophe
Wildfires, storms, flooding, and hurricanes imperil properties—and harden the market. Our evaluation models anticipate loss expectancies in CAT-prone geographies, helping you make informed coverage decisions.
Valuable carrier relationships
Newfront has deep partnerships with the world’s leading insurers. These carriers specialize in real estate risk and provide risk mitigation with the industry’s most competitive programs.
Thoughtful renewal process
We educate our clients about market fluctuations well in advance of renewals and work collaboratively to get the best results based on actual market conditions.
