TechAssure Adds Three New Member Firms

TechAssure has named three new brokerages as new members effective immediately. The three new firms named are: G2 Insurance in San Francisco, CA, AXIS Group in Vancouver, British Columbia and Cothrom Risk and Insurance Services in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. All three firms were selected for their commitment and dedication to serving middle-market companies in the technology, life science, clean tech and venture capital/private equity industries, in addition to helping companies manage complex cyber risks.

“Adding three new members is a testament to how TechAssure can help unite brokers that specialize in technology-related industries,” said TechAssure Executive Director, Garrett Droege. “AXIS, Cothrom and G2 have all demonstrated the right risk management skills and commitment to high service standards that all TechAssure members uphold and value.”

To be considered for membership, brokerages must demonstrate a high level of technical ability in complex insurance program design, as well as the ability to share best practices and IP for the benefit of moving the association and its members forward. As the number of independent, niche-focused brokerages diminishes due to M&A, TechAssure members offer a unique and powerful solution for companies with companies with technology-related risks – particularly in the middle-market which is often overlooked and underserviced by large, institutional brokerages. G2, AXIS and Cothrom have all met the rigorous membership standards and broaden TechAssure’s reach and service into new technology hubs around the world.
