The Equity Risk Partners Difference

Private equity and alternative asset management represents one of the fastest-growing, most complex and important sectors of the global business arena. To succeed, you need a partner who knows the industry inside and out - a partner that is as creative, driven and entrepreneurial as you are.

Why Equity Risk Partners?

  • We are an agile group of deeply experienced and highly skilled professionals that operate at levels of speed and efficiency unheard of in the insurance business.
  • We were a startup. We know what it means to build a business from the ground up and the importance of protecting it.
  • No other company has better resources for every potential scenario.
  • We operate on our clients’ timeframes.
  • We can, and regularly do, handle any risk, anywhere - no exceptions.
  • We utilize the latest technology and, in some cases, develop our own to better manage transaction flow and communicate information to our clients.

Many insurance brokerages are there to make the sale and move on. At Equity Risk Partners, we pride ourselves on offering more. We not only help our clients find the right insurance policies and benefit plans at the right price, but we provide ongoing strategic counsel and oversight of the entire process. “Partners” is in our name because our business is about relationships and providing the customized client service that other brokers do not. With Equity Risk Partners, there is no "glad handing" from a relationship manager and then being passed off to a junior staffer.  Our clients work with a consistent team that lives and breathes their business and its risks. 

We are the only insurance broker to provide products and services that exclusively meet the needs of the private equity industry on a global scale. Our professionals have years of experience and hundreds of private equity transactions to their credit. We know what works - and what pitfalls to avoid. We have both the geographical reach and industry-specific expertise to ensure that no matter your needs and no matter the special circumstances, we will have the solution.

Our industry faces unique challenges when it comes to Workers' Compensation coverage. Equity Risk was able to leverage its longstanding relationships with trusted carriers to secure the right policy coverage to meet our needs with the most competitive pricing.
