All Risks, Ltd. Named in Business Insurance's Annual Best Places to Work in Insurance

All Risks, Ltd. has been named in Business Insurance's  annual Best Places to Work in Insurance program, which recognizes employers for their outstanding performance in establishing workplaces where employees can thrive, enjoy their work, and help their companies grow.

Formed as an excess and surplus lines facility in 1964, All Risks delivers comprehensive commercial and personal lines insurance solutions exclusively to retail agents and brokers.  Today, the firm is the largest independent and privately-held wholesale broker in the U.S., with over 850 professionals in 26 locations, and $2.25B in estimated premiums in 2019.

“Many things differentiate All Risks from the competition, but what we do best is provide an umbrella for people who are bright, talented and driven to create their own businesses within the specialty insurance marketplace,” states Nick Cortezi, CEO.  “We spend the majority of our waking hours at work, so creating an environment that is inclusive, supportive and rewarding is important,” he added.

“Being named to Business Insurance’s  list of the Best Places to Work in Insurance for 2019 demonstrates that All Risks has built a culture in which employees are supported and engaged, which benefits their customers and the employers’ financial performance,” says Business Insurance  Publisher, Peter Oxner.

In 2016, 1,200 employees and guests cruised to the Bahamas to celebrate All Risks' 50th Anniversary and the milestone of achieving $1B in premium.

All Risks is dedicated to investing in the career development of its employees and supportive of initiatives that build social bonds with coworkers and the organization.  In 2006, the firm established All Risks University, a training and mentoring program that gives new recruits an understanding of the organization’s culture and systems, as well as an opportunity to develop strong peer networks.

Through recognition, appreciation, and fair management practices, All Risks fosters an environment that is rewarding, engaging, and fulfilling.  An entrepreneurial spirit permeates the company atmosphere.  Every person’s ideas and talents are valued and everyone contributes to the company’s success.
