We provide insurance (admitted and non-admitted) and reinsurance risk transfer products to meet the unique needs of this segment. Our clients are self-insurers on a single risk basis, pools, trusts, captives, and risk retention groups.

We take a flexible approach in getting to know our clients' businesses and crafting the best solutions to meet their unique needs.
Our team of professionals has an extensive background in public entity and nonprofit business and understands that each entity has its own unique set of exposures. We work closely with producers who specialize in this segment to craft the appropriate coverage to meet the needs of each client. Claims will be coordinated with our dedicated claims team and the client's TPA.
We create partnerships intended to endure the insurance cycle and produce positive, long-term results. Our partners have deep knowledge in their niche and are capable of underwriting, rating, billing, and policy issuance that enhances the program administrator's business. Our flexible approach allows us to deploy our policy systems or take an electronic interface.
