HOLBORN JOB DESCRIPTION

COMPANY OVERVIEW
Holborn is an independent reinsurance intermediary committed to achieving our mission by reinvesting in our firm. We deliver responsive account services, customized and proprietary analytics and global access to our clients. Our commitment to employee development, diversity, financial stability and integrity has helped us recruit and retain top talent, attract new business and develop trusting, decades-long relationships with satisfied clients.

A consistent thread runs through all the services Holborn offers – client advocacy. We are committed to understanding each client’s needs, corporate culture, risk tolerance and overall business approach. Rather than presenting a menu of predetermined tools, we deliver a select choice of proprietary analytics and use our expertise to uniquely tailor these services. We maintain a relentless commitment to giving clients what they truly need, with no two client solutions exactly the same.

Given our global reach, access to industry leaders, experience of our people, and presence at industry meetings, we develop leading-edge placement alternatives that offer unique coverage and capacity to each client. All accomplished with a steadfast focus on the long-term.

Looking toward our Centennial in 2020, we’re not only one of the most experienced reinsurance brokers in the world, but also one of a very few independent intermediaries owned by its employees.
