Risk Transfer Agreement

You learn or hear something new every day. I have had insurance through two companies since I started 10 years ago. Another wanted to quote me so I sat and listened to his pitch. No harm in him running the numbers.

One of the insurance companies is asking for Risk Transfer Agreements from my subs. I have never heard this. Even when I have been a sub I have never been asked to sign one. Is this common practice to have Risk Transfer Agreements?

Lastly, does anyone have an example of one they are using. Yes, I could look it up, but I am interested in a live document.

Re: Risk Transfer Agreement

I have never heard of this either, I am required to have subs list me as additional insured, is the transfer agreement a different way of saying the same thing?

Re: Risk Transfer Agreement

I have a hold harmless clause in my sub contracts, so I guess I do have risk transfer agreements
