What Sets us Apart

Innovation

We always strive to bring the most cutting-edge risk strategies and tools to our clients. We desire to be the most innovative risk & insurance firm in Tennessee.

Common Sense

Practicality and common sense can sometime get drowned out by sales jargon and lofty pitches. We are most concerned with helping and serving the risk issues of our clients, and therefore common sense with an emphasis on practical outcomes is a priority shared across the board by every employee.

Analytics

Measurable outcomes for every client is priority number one for us. We crunch data from risk analytics to help our clients benchmark improvement and analyze outcomes on an ongoing basis.

Why William Blount Risk Advocates?

Insurance these days has devolved into a sales process fixated on the transaction rather than what it was intended to be, a piece of the risk management process.

This shift to a sales model has brought a fresh need to the marketplace for William Blount Risk Advocates to introduce to the Knoxville, Nashville, and the greater Tennessee marketplace, an innovative type of risk professional. One that goes beyond insurance into a different dimension of relationship where the client’s needs and risks are evaluated and managed, not just sold policies.

Since 1994, William Blount has built William Blount & Associates to be more than your average insurance agency. Our founding principles of functioning with integrity,  being intentionally responsive, as well as being trustworthy, will never change. We have grown and adapted to the needs of our clients as the years have passed while most agencies remain the same.

Our innovative process delves into every facet of your business. How you operate, your goals, and what elements of your company might improve with the right strategy—because you’re more than just a quick transaction to us. We go beyond insurance, providing you with insurance solutions plus strategies that help you manage and control your risk.

We offer risk solutions for personal and business insurance, as well as employee benefits, with our specialties in, Business Insurance, Employee Benefits, Personal Insurance, High Net Worth Insurance, Bonds, and Captive Insurance.
