W. R. Berkley Corporation has had a presence in commercial surety for over 30 years. Despite that success, it was time to take a look at what Berkley Surety did well and what Berkley Surety could do better. In 2009, redesigning commercial surety from the ground up was no easy task, but that's exactly what we did.
Rather than rely solely on technology, we built our commercial surety strategy around people instead of computers. While the best available technology is an integral component of our analytics and delivery, the driving force in Berkley Surety's commercial enterprise is our people.
We identified industry talent with special traits that could make a difference. Our people are experienced in intellectual capital, and have proven experience working with large, publicly traded risks. But most of all, our team is made up of responsive people with confidence and common sense. "If it makes sense, let's find a way to do it."
Complex programs for large companies require support from a number of products beyond traditional commercial surety, such as contract surety, subdivision and environmental. Our commercial team has the expertise and authority to deliver single source solutions.
Berkley Surety supports commercial aggregate programs of up to $150 million.
