“SURE powers insurance programs for carriers and global consumer brands through our focus on creating innovative insurance experiences and delivering an end-to-end solution. The funding by W. R. Berkley Corporation is a testament to our skill and overall ability to create value for insurers and customers unlike anyone else.” – Sure’s cofounder and CEO Wayne Slavin.
“We’ve been providing insurance solutions for over half a century, through more than 50 Berkley companies, with deep expertise in a specific industry, product line, or geographic niche. SURE’s best in class technology platform is modernizing the way insurers offer insurance and the way consumers access it. We’re excited to both lead this funding round and to partner with SURE to develop innovative digital solutions to better serve our customers.” – Michael Nannizzi, director of investments, W. R.
