What is the golden touch in insurance?

New insurance technologies and innovations – no matter how much they increase connectivity and collaboration between insurance professionals – will never quite compare to the combination of two local minds with shared experience, working together to solve a local insurance problem.

Read next: Why do insurers overcomplicate their language?

Let me explain what I mean. If you weren’t already aware, Insurance Business publishes in six countries or regions worldwide: the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Asia-Pacific, Australia, and New Zealand. As part of that, our editors are interviewing insurance professionals from coast-to-coast and border-to-border.

The geographic spread is immense. Canada, for example, has a total area of ​​9,879,750 km², according to worldpopulationreview.com, trumping the US (9,831,510 km²) and Australia (7,741,220 km²). Meanwhile, Asia is the world’s largest and most populous continent.

The thing about risk is that no two risks are the same. While a small business risk in Eastern Canada might look the same on paper, or in automated computer algorithm, as a small business risk 6,000km away in Western Canada, there are local nuances that must be considered when underwriting that risk. The same goes for any other country or region where Insurance Business has a publication.

Brokers have benefitted hugely from greater connectivity in the insurance industry. There’s no doubt about that. If they have relationships with international insurers, they’re now able to tap into intellectual capital from insurance professionals and risk experts around the world – a boon inaccessible in the not-so-distant past.

But even the best and brightest brains cannot understand the culture or the “feel” of a place and its people if they’ve never been there or experienced it first-hand. That’s not something you can enter into a database and run through an automated risk assessment and underwriting tool. It comes from

Chattanooga-based insurance broker Reliance partners with Carousel Capital

The nation’s fastest-growing insurance broker focused on the trucking industry expects to stay in the fast lane with a new capital investment from an outside private investment firm.

Reliance Partners LLC, which was started in Chattanooga in 2009 and has grown with funding from Chattanooga’s Lamp Post Group, is getting an extra capital boost from the Charlotte, North Carolina-based Carousel Capital fund. With the new investment announced this week, Reliance leaders hope to double the size of the commercial insurance business in the next three years and reach its goal of having more than $1 billion of annual written premiums by 2o25.

“Our company is at an inflection point, and after getting to know Carousel over the past two years, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with them for both financial support as well as strategic guidance,” said Chad Eichelberger, president of Reliance Partners. “Their experience fits perfectly with our strategy, where we are today as a company, and where we want to take Reliance over the next decade.”

In a telephone interview, Eichelberger declined to specify the amount of the Carousel Capital investment. But Eichelberger said the additional equity “will help accelerate the growth of our business.

“We’re going to be much more aggressive in deploying technology, strategic acquisitions and our western expansion, in particular,” Eichelberger said.

The Carousal Capital investment is the first outside capital investment in the company, which has grown steadily over the past 13 years.

Reliance Partners was named this spring as one of the top 100 commercial insurance agencies in the United States by the Hales Report after achieving year-over-year growth last year of 81.4%.

The Chattanooga-based agency operates additional offices in Austin, Texas; Birmingham, Alabama;
