Exchange Evaluation

Under pressure from senior management to investigate exchange options?

Wondering if a private exchange is right for you?

Getting bombarded with sales pitches from exchange “solution providers”?

Wishing you could get some unbiased advice?

As consulting firms and brokerage agencies invest tremendous amounts of money and resources into the development and marketing of private exchange solutions, many benefits professionals are being directed by senior leadership to investigate these options.

So where can you turn for sound, independent advice, when your current consultant/broker, and even your coalition, is offering its own exchange solution?

If you’re heading down this new path, it’s important that you have an experienced guide. We understand the strengths and weaknesses of each exchange vendor and have an experienced team of benefits managers and consultants to help you separate the hype from reality.

We offer you market knowledge and independent advice — not our own self-serving exchange “solution.”

Our typical exchange-related consulting services include:
