Berkley Canada specializes in commercial and travel insurance, with a strong focus on specialized commercial customer needs. The company is known for its extensive coverage options within each of its insurance categories, and it also believes in giving its brokers plenty of tools to develop the right solution for each client.
Berkley Canada is part of the $53 billion W.R. Berkley Corporation that was established in 1967 by Canadian businessman William R. Berkley. To help it stand apart from other insurance companies associated with large corporations, Berkley Canada puts a very strong focus on individualized customer service. Instead of acting like one part of a huge corporate machine, Berkley Canada has its branches become experts in doing business in their own immediate areas.
Customers of Berkley Canada enjoy:
Comprehensive lines of specialized commercial insurance
Truly personalized service with the support of a major corporation
A company that is ranked high in responding to customer service issues
An underwriting team with a broad base of industry experience
Berkley Canada Advantages
Berkley Canada is able to appeal to customers who enjoy the security of a large corporation, as well as customers who prefer the personal service of a small business. Throughout its history, Berkley Canada has focused on leveraging its resources to benefit each client on an individual basis. For the customer, this results in business advantages such as:
Local Knowledge – Berkley Canada prefers to have its Canadian offices act independently to develop solutions that are relevant to each region. While the company’s offerings remain consistent throughout its network of brokers, the products are administered and developed based solely on the needs of each local market. This type of personal service has helped Berkley Canada to appeal to a broad range of Ontario customers.
Big Company Security – While Berkley Canada insists that its offices operate independently to better serve each local community, it is important to know that the company is still part of the W.R. Berkley family of businesses. That $53 billion empire brings a sense of stability to local customers that smaller providers cannot match. The financial foundation Berkley Canada enjoys helps to keep premiums under control, and it makes sure that the company always has the resources to respond to customer needs.
Fast To Respond – Another way that Berkley Canada goes against the big corporation image is to respond quickly to customer needs. From its claims service to its response to customer questions and concerns, Berkley Canada is consistently voted as one of the top insurance companies for customer satisfaction in Canada.
