Liberty Mutual Extends its Brand to Specialty and E&S Solutions Delivered via Retail Brokers and Repositions Ironshore to Exclusively Serve Wholesale Brokers
BOSTON (Sept. 7, 2022) – Liberty Mutual Insurance today announced changes to its dual-channel distribution strategy for specialty and excess & surplus (E&S) insurance solutions. The changes will improve ease-of-doing-business and better serve retail and wholesale brokers in efforts to meet the changing and increasingly complex and interconnected needs of businesses.
Going forward, all US commercial, specialty and E&S products placed via retail brokers will be Liberty Mutual branded, and Ironshore will become a wholesale-exclusive brand.
“Since Liberty Mutual’s acquisition of Ironshore in 2017, we have offered commercial, specialty and E&S products under both the Liberty and Ironshore brands, regardless of channel,” says GRS North America Specialty and Ironshore President Matt Dolan. “The distinction between Liberty Mutual for retail and Ironshore for wholesale will create a clearer, more consistent experience for customers and partners and demonstrates our dual-channel commitment.”
Wholesale and retail brokers should continue to work with their current underwriting and distribution contacts and can expect to see branding changes rolled out over the coming months.
