Our Purpose

 

We see risk so you see opportunity.

Risk is a web that surrounds you, your family, your business. A web that gets more tangled and complex with each passing day.

Today, you have a choice. With Oswald, you gain access to the knowledge and solutions to take control.

At Oswald, we deliver peace of mind in a world of uncertainty and take on the “heavy thinking” for you. In turn, you can count on us to protect what matters most to you.

We see risk and how it connects and bridges all corners of our world.

We build our teams across generations of experience, with diverse backgrounds and specialized skills, to put the best minds at the table to work for you and see your risks from all angles.

We understand. We are all employee-owners of the business we serve at Oswald. We see a bright future, and a world protected, for whatever comes next.

Oswald Companies delivers a client experience beyond the traditional broker or consultant approach, to become partners and advisors of the people and organizations we serve.

Best in class risks, best in class results. It’s more than a philosophy. Our distinctive approach, solutions investments and risk optimization programs translate into profitable growth.
