Risk Purchasing Group

Risk Purchasing Group (RPG)

Definition

A group formed in compliance with the Risk Retention Act of 1986 authorizing a group of insureds engaged in similar businesses or activities to purchase insurance coverage from a commercial insurer. This is in contrast to a risk retention group (RRG), which actually bears the group's risks rather than obtaining coverage on behalf of group members.
