What is risksmith?  A risksmith brings an unparalleled level of expertise to the craft of insurance underwriting.  Think: a 30,000-hour commercial airline pilot….a third generation winemaker, a restorer of antique Swiss watches… 

Why risksmith? Underwriting, as an art, should be celebrated. We are a culture of responsible risk-taking as a service for balance-sheet companies desperate to align with expertise

What was the genesis of the idea to create the company? In our view, underwriters play a huge role in the value chain. I wanted an underwriter-centric culture that allowed underwriters to achieve the highest levels of professional success on the back of their skills.

What makes us different, culturally?  Return on Equity focus, leading with underwriting, treating customers and employees with a view of long-term relationships and value-creation.
