be selective...

We are very selective with whom we partner with and what type of accounts we work.  In short, we do not want to try and be a partner to all your competition both from a carrier and agency standpoint.  Additionally, we will only work accounts we are highly specialized & experienced in placing. Growing deeper, select relationships is our strategy, rather than trying to be everyone’s broker.  Our firm has decades of experience not just in the insurance industry but more importantly working hands on in the industries we specialize in.  For example, the oil & gas industry. This allows us to better understand the exposures that we insure.  Furthermore, we only work a select number of accounts each month which allows us to fully focus on your business.  Our selective approach fosters deeper, more meaningful partnerships with underwriters and agents. Establishing select long-term and rewarding relationships is what we are all about.



tips for selecting your broker of choice...

Every time you consider working with a wholesale broker, ask yourself:

Q: Who do I want negotiating on my behalf?

A: Brokers that completely understand the classes of business that you write and have the industry experience, coverage expertise and  underwriting relationships within that space.

Q: How will this broker be different than almost every other broker?

A: At Select Risk, we provide timely, detailed, problem solving information that allows all parties to communicate effectively and efficiently.  This translates to you receiving optimum quotes that include favorable coverage, terms and conditions at the desired rate & premium in the expected timeframe.
