Company Details


Berkley Aspire is an excess & surplus lines insurer of commercial risks unable to find a home in the standard markets. We are an operating unit of WR Berkley, a publicly traded (NYSE “WRB”) global insurer founded in 1967. 


We make excess & surplus lines easy – easy for our distribution partners, easy for the businesses they represent, and easy to navigate. The lines of coverage we underwrite include general liability, property, and excess liability. Our model is different than our competitors – we do the premium billing and do not add interest/ finance percentage, we offer enhanced commissions, and we handle the stamping, affidavit filings, and other behind-the-scenes paperwork. 


Our company culture is entrepreneurial, employee centric, and focused on sustainable growth. Aspire teammates work either remotely or on a hybrid schedule from offices in Scottsdale, Cincinnati, and Richmond. If you are looking for a company that offers room for advancement, great benefits, and positive vibes, then Aspire may be the place for you!
