Managing Partner

I help financial institutions and private equity firms optimize their insurance programs. We leverage long-standing underwriting relationships, utilize a suite of client support tools, and apply a process-oriented service model which enables us to service clients better than other brokers. I have spent 50,490 hours specializing in this industry; starting with the technical side of brokering to gain a deep knowledge of contract response to claims. I have traded in the global markets (US, Bermuda, and London) and focus on all corporate and property / casualty related lines.
