James River Insurance Company specializes in underwriting unusual and often hard-to-place commercial exposures such as high-hazard products liability, tough contractors, catastrophe-exposed property, and medical professional liability. With its headquarters in Richmond, James River distributes its products through wholesale surplus lines' insurance brokers nationwide. The Company writes brokerage, individual-risk business through its various underwriting divisions, each organized around a specific industry group or coverage. We welcome unusual or high-hazard risks, and seek to understand the exposure of each account fully and price each accordingly. We aspire to be a great underwriting organization, and our staff is full of curious and disciplined thinkers. The only true measure of that achievement is underwriting profitability, year-in and year-out through all phases of market cycles. Since its founding, James River has been consistently profitable.
