Jewelers Mutual Group Introduces JM Risk Services

New division is dedicated to loss prevention and risk management solutions.




(PRESS RELEASE) NEENAH, WI — From grab-and-run thefts to daytime break-insand rooftop burglaries, this year crimes against the jewelry industry have increased, along with the severity of losses. Jewelers Mutual Group has taken the challenge of helping jewelers mitigate their risks head on. The group’s commitment to the safety and security of the industry is the driving force behind JM Risk Services — its newest division dedicated to loss prevention education and risk management solutions for its policyholders and the entire jewelry industry.

“Through JM Risk Services, Jewelers Mutual is redefining what loss prevention means for the industry,” said Larry Spicer, vice president of loss prevention and risk management at Jewelers Mutual. “Creating an entire division dedicated to risk services should speak volumes to our devotion to safety and security.”

The last thing Spicer wants jewelers to worry about is dealing with a devastating loss. “We’re asking a lot of questions to learn what keeps jewelers up at night. Helping uncover jewelers’ risks and providing the right solution gets them back to servicing their customers and being a profitable business.”

JM Risk Services encompasses three core support areas: (1) educational resources complimentary to the entire jewelry industry, such as guides, checklists and security materials; (2) services provided as a member benefit to Jewelers Mutual’s commercial lines customers that includes counseling services, board-up services and secure off-site storage and transport; (3) programs for all jewelers, including those not insured with Jewelers Mutual, such as the recently launched Alarm Response Program.

“We understand our responsibility to raise the tide of the entire industry,” said Spicer, “As we add new solutions through JM Risk Services, we’re considering how we can improve the lives and livelihoods of all jewelers so everyone can sleep better at night.”

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
