The Symbol of the Knight
The Knight- a versatile, powerful piece in the game of chess.
When used with skill, insight and experience, it has that unique ability to manoeuvre, penetrate and attack impregnable positions, where no other chess piece can- including the formidable Queen. It is this ubiquitous attacking quality – especially the hands of a seasoned player which makes the knight one of the most feared pieces on the chessboard. Throughout history the knight has upheld a code of honour- to live a life of integrity.
These qualities- integrity, skill, insight and experience– are at the foundation of our services to our customers.
The symbol of the Knight is a registered trademark of Risk Management Services Ltd.
Risk Management Services Limited ( RMS ) was formed in January 1978 as a subsidiary of the Neal & Massy Group to address the Insurance and Risk Management needs of its widespread assembly, retail, transport and financial business interests. Since then, RMS has expanded through several strategic alliances in the field of insurance broking and in the area of business and risk management consulting. We now serve a wide range of Private, Public and Multinational entities in manufacturing, oil and energy and service industries in the Caribbean.
RMS has been the Broker to the Government of Trinidad and Tobago since 1990 and this had been maintained only by virtue of our continuous high integrity, skills and energy in the delivering service. RMS also spread geographically through the maintenance of correspondent relationships in Jamaica, Barbados, Guyana and the Eastern Caribbean.
In 2002, RMS became a 100% owned subsidiary of Guardian Holdings Limited as it pursued its aggressive acquisition strategy. With the announcement of changes in insurance legislation in 2006, GHL agreed for a management buyout of RMS’ shares.
