Risk Services have worked with multiple nationally recognized AM Best A-rated traditional insurance carriers to develop Agency Captive programs for their independent agents. Our carrier sponsored Agency Captive programs have enabled carriers to incentivize their key agencies to produce over one billion dollars of new superior loss ratio business through aligning the interests of the insurance carriers and the agents. Additionally, Risk Services has worked on agent driven Agency Captive programs whereby an agent with a profitable book of business establishes a strategic relationship with an insurance carrier to share in their underwriting profits and related investment income.

Words of wisdom from our CEO, Michael Rogers
“I first reached out to Risk Services in 2003 for assistance with finding reinsurance on a nursing home program. Prior to that first contact, I hit a dead-end with every previous effort with intermediaries and markets. It was apparent from the outset that Risk Services had the market credibility necessary to allow us to get in front of reinsurers and tell our story. Risk Services came through with a reinsurance program, and our relationship expanded as we hired them for Captive Management services. Since 2003 we’ve been fortunate to work with many fine vendors in the various services needed for our Risk Retention Groups. We believe Risk Services to be irreplaceable. Their knowledge, professionalism, capabilities and responsiveness quite simply, are second to none.”
