The BHSI story began in 2013, when Berkshire Hathaway Inc. CEO Warren Buffett announced that Berkshire Hathaway was moving into commercial insurance in a substantial — and everlasting — way. With that proclamation, a strong and eminently trustworthy insurance partner was born.
Since then, BHSI has grown steadily and strategically, fueled by stellar financial strength. We continue to move into new geographies and product lines. We’re regularly expanding our worldwide team, with professionals who share our customer-first philosophy and the dual requisites of strong capabilities and exemplary character.
BHSI is part of Berkshire Hathaway’s National Indemnity group of insurance companies, which hold financial strength ratings of A++ from AM Best and AA+ from Standard & Poor’s. Letters on a page that translate to confidence, peace of mind, and certainty for our customers.
National Indemnity group of insurance companies has $333.9 billion in total admitted assets and $202.5 billion in policyholder surplus. Because of this exceptionally strong balance sheet BHSI is able to provide outsize capacity and creative, flexible solutions customers can count on year after year.
