Company Overview

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.

Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance provides commercial property, casualty, healthcare professional liability, executive and professional lines, transactional liability, surety, marine, travel, programs, medical stop loss, homeowners and multinational insurance. We are part of Berkshire Hathaway’s National Indemnity group of insurance companies, consisting of National Indemnity and its affiliates, which hold financial strength ratings of A++ from AM Best and AA+ from Standard & Poor’s.

A Diverse Global Team
BHSI is a worldwide team of individuals with excellent capabilities and strong character. Together, we bring diverse backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives to BHSI. We come from over 280 different companies and organizational cultures. As we embrace and are strengthened by our individual differences, we take great pride in the culture and place we create as one BHSI.

Claims Excellence
It’s there in black and white: BHSI’s standards of excellence in claims service are clearly articulated. So claims handling expectations are set – and exceeded.

In Today’s technology-driven world we are ever mindful that people are at the heart of every claim. So our door is open. We’re readily accessible. Every claim is handled with the utmost skill – by people who are here for you.

Everyone at BHSI lives the Berkshire Hathaway tradition of doing the right thing…earning our reputation for trust, integrity and prudent risk taking every day. We choose simplicity over complexity, every day, in every way — from our easy-to-read policy wordings, to our lean and agile organizational structure. You’ll see the difference. At BHSI, there’s nothing crowding our lens.


“We are a company of risk takers. Relationship-builders. Standout individuals…certain we can accomplish even more as a team.”

Not Your Usual Organization
BHSI first came to market in 2013 — an industry “newcomer,” out of the gate with one of the industry’s most experienced management teams and the strong balance sheet and capital of Berkshire Hathaway. Since then, we have been moving swiftly ahead, in lockstep with customer needs – building an enduring industry leader from the ground up.

We have excess & surplus underwriting capabilities, a hunger for large and complex risks. We are in a number of admitted markets, and expanding, steadily and strategically, to serve customers’ needs domestically and internationally.

Our culture is liberating and fast paced: We are purposefully non-bureaucratic and perpetually entrepreneurial, centered on doing what is right for our customers, our teammates, and our business.

High Expectations, Vast Opportunities
We are looking for individuals who share our devotion to the task…who show both an ability to excel and an excellence of character. People who want to do the heavy lifting — and find unprecedented opportunities in reach. People whose integrity and work ethic fit proudly under the Berkshire Hathaway banner.

At BHSI, we value diversity of backgrounds, experience, and perspectives. We are looking for individuals from every corner of our industry and the industries we serve and varying levels of experience.

Up for the Task?
At BHSI, every day is a chance to do something new. Drafting innovative policy wording. Bringing game-changing service capabilities into the fold. Walking the talk of best in class claims handling. It is all in a day’s work. As part of our team, you will fuel BHSI’s growth, shaping our future and that of our customers – collaboration by collaboration, innovation by innovation.
