Letter from the President

John Wood

Specialty Risk Associates, Inc employees through their knowledge, experience, and expertise, bring value to retail insurance agents in placing specialty and surplus lines insurance coverage. Our constancy in adding value takes on great significance due to developments in the financial services industry and related concerns about stability of the U.S. insurance industry. In this atmosphere, the secure, professional relationship you enjoy with your wholesale excess and surplus lines broker is more important than ever.

Whether you are an insurer or a retailer, your success is fundamental to our success. We work with both insurers and independent professional retail agents to provide property and casualty protection. We serve as branch offices for many niche and specialty insurers and in addition, Specialty Risk provides valuable knowledge about markets that retailers don’t work with every day. We also provide retailers with a broader perspective on specific specialty lines and industries. This detailed information can help retailers make more informed decisions when placing specialty insurance during times of economic uncertainty.

The storm clouds will come and go, as will the market cycles, and Specialty Risk Associates, Inc. will remain constant to serve your specialty excess and surplus lines insurance needs. Specialty Risk appreciates your partnerships and the continued support of our customers since 1985. Be assured we will continue to work and improve all aspects of our business so we will remain your wholesaler of choice for your next “special risk”.
