Founded in 1969, We Credit Our Longevity to a Simple Principle
50 years and stronger than ever! We are extremely proud of our legacy. Not many businesses can claim such a lasting history. Sure times have changed. However, there is one simple principle that has served us well as we march into our 6th decade – treat the client’s business as if it were our own.
Business owners and management teams appreciate the Bryson approach because we understand the challenges in running a business in today’s complex world. With our strategic approach and a focus on cost reduction, we turn benefits and insurance into a competitive advantage.
Medical Insurance Became Unmanageable
A large retail operation was experiencing higher than average turnover which led to higher training and out of control medical costs. Bryson delivered a solution.
Crushing Workers’ Comp Claims Impacts
A $40 million industrial services business was literally hemorrhaging dollars due to out of control workers’ comp claims. They turned to Bryson for a strategy.
Reducing Private Equity Partner Taxes
A seven person private equity firm with four partners and three employees saw revenues and the subsequent tax bill growing. Bryson helped them reduce taxes.
We Reduce Costs for Private Equity
The fact is most insurance firms shy away from discussions about price because reducing insurance and benefits costs is difficult and counterintuitive for most insurance brokers, especially the big guys. Instead, when you want to talk about costs, they’ll only talk about “adding value” and the size of their firm.
In our work, we know private equity firms and portfolio company management teams maintain a strong focus on cash flow, profitability, and increasing enterprise value. So any discussion about changes in employee benefits and insurance has to be driven by cost effectiveness.
Our expectation is that any insurance firm you are working with must understand the private equity industry, must provide the best in service, and must bring creative strategies to due diligence and risk management.
Bryson provides strategic private equity industry experience and knowledge. We offer a truly consultative approach to insurance solutions and a due diligence process that looks at risk strategy both short and long term to avoid unnecessary surprises.
We assist with pre-transaction due diligence, transaction risk, portfolio cost reduction, and partner retirement planning.
Our focus is the same as your focus. Our private equity clients view us a trusted partner – and partners don’t let partners pay too much for insurance coverage.

How We Help Businesses Manage and Reduce the Costs of Insurance and Employee Benefits
THE BRYSON PERFORMANCE EDGE
Instead of compensation that is only based on a percentage of the premium, we have designed a compensation model directly tied to our ability to lower your insurance.
Too many businesses have a locked-in relationship with a broker and they “set it and forget it.” Business owners often pay too little attention to the cost savings that can be achieved with a strategic focus on risk management. For Bryson, competition is at the heart of our cost reduction strategies.
LIFECYCLE COST DESIGN
At Bryson, we take a proactive lifecycle approach. We work with buinsess owners, HR professionals, and members of the management team to introduce and help them adopt best-in-class strategies that contribute to lower insurance premiums and employee benefits costs over time.
Our deep dive process will confirm whether you are on the right track, or you are significantly overpaying or have dangerous risk exposure. It is a free service to uncover an area that is usually left unchecked.
