AmWINS is one of the largest wholesale brokers of insurance for commercial and residential real estate risks.Contact Us
Placing more than $1.7 billion of real estate-related premium annually has made AmWINS one of the largest wholesale real estate insurance brokers in the U.S. We’ve accomplished this by forming strategic partnerships with leading wholesaler insurers who specialize in placing coverage that’s not always available in the standard lines market, helping our retail agents and brokers better serve the needs of their residential and commercial real estate clients.
These include property owners, managers and developers, real estate investment trusts (REITs), financial institutions, private equity firms, asset managers/fund managers, condominium and homeowners associations, contractors and builders. We offer key coverages and products related to real estate risks that include property, crime, and management and professional liability.
As a company, we have built specialized solutions for unique problems, and our real estate practice uses the expertise of our London-based colleagues at THB Group to market on behalf of our U.S. retail clients. This gives our retail partners the assurance that we are using the full resources within the AmWINS organization to solve their clients’ problems.
