     Berkley Public Entity_Logo

    In 2012 Berkley Public Entity (BPE) was founded as a member company of W. R. Berkley Corporation. As we thought about the mission of the new company, we kept coming back to several critical core characteristics: We must have strong interdisciplinary core competencies; we must strive to develop collaborative, mutually beneficial relationships between partners; we must excel at understanding and serving the evolving needs of the entities we work with, and we must foster a culture of innovation with the goal of continuous improvement to ensure best in class service to all of our partners.

     

    What, then, are the hallmarks of a long-lasting risk program, and how does BPE support one? Simply, we work best with entities that seek to “own their risk” and are driven to minimize the negative implications, both human and financial, of the services they provide. We use our multi-disciplined team to help create risk control and cost saving solutions that are often unique, and always carefully crafted. Our clients must know that we will always strive to provide resources to help them achieve this goal while also helping them benefit from the positive implications of effective management of risk. Through the close, trusting relationships we develop with our brokers and clients we are able to make thoughtful decisions based upon shared goals.
