Management & Staff

Our people grew up in the fund industry and are acknowledged, even by our competition, as industry experts. It's common for competing commercial insurers and brokers to call or email us for insight, information, or interpretation. Our go-to experts speak at industry forums around the country, write articles and white papers, and are consulted by the media for commentary and explanation.

We utilize our knowledge to help our insureds identify and avoid risk at the front end, and then stand behind them with robust claim support if problems occur.

Our insureds consider us partners—good partners. Unlike commercial carriers, whose primary mission is to bring public stockholders a return on their investment, ICI Mutual serves only our insureds, first and always. The result: a congruency of interests between insurer and insured that exists nowhere else in the industry.
