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, investments in solutions and risk optimization programs translate into profitable growth.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

At Oswald Companies, we believe true organizational strength comes when your team members embrace the values of integrity, community, collaboration, diversity, equity and inclusion, backed by the confidence of knowing their employer is with them at every turn and for the long road ahead. But it’s more than holding these values; it’s about building them into the DNA of every personal interaction and business transaction. View more on diversity, equity and inclusion
