Nationwide files trademark for Risk Spotter

Nationwide has filed a new trademark application for Risk Spotter on May 19th.

Some of the statements made in regards to this filing are: “Providing consumer information in the field of financial risk and wellness,” and “Financial advisory and consultancy services, namely, financial wellness and financial risk scoring; Fiscal assessment and evaluation; Providing financial information.”

If the name sounds familiar, it is likely because Nationwide had another app by the name of Hazard Spotter which was introduced in 2017 to help millennials and other employees in the grain and agtech sector enjoy access to “better training.”

“The main benefit of this app is that it’s realistic. For example, you could die from suffocation or the elevator could explode. That’s why this takes place in a virtual reality — versus real life.” – Jason Berkland, who back then was a senior consultant with Nationwide’s Risk Management Services; he helped develop, test, and pilot the app.
