to New Opportunities
There’s strength, growth in partnerships.
As a world-class global organization that specializes in providing the best in alternative risk transfer solutions, Artex welcomes the opportunity to explore strategic partnerships with firms whose talent, expertise, performance and geographic footprint enable us to deliver even stronger client propositions. Our goal is to provide our clients and business referral networks with substantially greater scale and resource breadth.
Over the last few years, we have partnered with some of the smartest and most respected voices in our industry, allowing us to expand our product offerings to agents and brokers so that they can find the right fit to better protect businesses. This includes merging with companies that have allowed us to: strengthen our expertise in the U.K. auto market; enter into the market with strong ILS capacity; broaden our reach and strength in the formation and management of insurance and alternative risk solutions with expertise in the health care, insurance, financial services, transportation and construction industries; and strategically expand our captive management facility beyond North America, and other regions.
It’s All About People
With all our past and future mergers, the people with whom we do business take precedence. Acquiring great talent whenever it becomes available is our priority. We also value creative, independent thought – part of the fabric of our culture – in the development of risk management solutions, which is what each one of our partners brings to Artex’s existing and prospective clients. We support that independence with the additional financial strength and stability that comes from being a part of Artex.

This includes a shared vision of innovation, passion and energy in developing sound, customized solutions for our clients.
