In November 2008, ALLSTAR founded Outdoor Underwriters, Inc. to include hunt lease and timber product insurance. As Vice President, Ed Wilson, Ph.D. oversees Outdoor’s operations and is supported by a very experienced underwriting and claims staff. Although a new product range for ALLSTAR, with the help of David Brett, Exec. VP/COO of ALLSTAR, originally placed this coverage into the Lloyd’s market over 19 years ago. Without hesitation, Lloyd’s has maintained its insurance for this program and its underwriters are actively supportive. The longevity of international support is a testament to the reputation that Ed and his team have developed with their clients. Outdoor Underwriters continues to have the support of several National/State organizations in the earliest stages of its history.
Allstar Financial Group, Inc. has over 125 employees, operating in ten regional offices, who write insurance and surety business in over 40 states. Allstar is member of numerous state and national organizations and is active within our own industry. In addition to an experienced underwriting team, we also maintain our own legal team, compliance officer and audit group.
The parent company to Outdoor Underwriters, Inc., Allstar Financial Group, Inc., traces its roots back to 1965 when it was formed in Georgia to write surety and fidelity business under the name of Georgia Surety Inc.. In 1999, Allstar Underwriters, Inc. was formed to meet an increased demand from a select group of clients for unique and specialty insurance products. Allstar Financial Group, Inc. has been under its current ownership since 1996 and maintains the same underwriting principals and philosophy.
ALLSTAR has five Lloyd’s contracts and we conduct business with top rated Surety and Insurance Companies that afford us both underwriting and, in several cases, claims authority. We represent Companion Property and Casualty, NY Marine Insurance Company, American Southern Insurance Company, Century Surety, United Specialty and Atlantic Specialty. As a firm we carry errors and omissions insurance plus fidelity coverage on our employees.
