Reputation value and risk management

Steel City Re provides reputation risk management and insurance solutions by combining financial modeling strategies with insights from informational and behavioral economics.

Reputation value is a strategic power. Early in 2020, it represented on average 76% of the market value of high performing companies according to their executives. Reputation value is placed at risk when companies fail to meet stakeholders’ expectations about governance and operations. The consequences of setting in motion angry, disappointed stakeholders are impaired strategic power, reduced cash flows, and stock price drops. Accordingly, reputation risk management is valued by credit analysts, equity portfolio managers and board members.

“In a market system based on trust, reputation has a significant economic value.”

Reputation value is a strategic power. Companies harness their reputation to sell more, faster, and at premium prices; and to obtain labor, vendor services, as well as capital on preferred terms. Reputation can help companies outperform competitors, deter activists, and satisfy regulators.
