Market Overview

Maverick’s philosophy has been to only work with a few select brokers and we do not appoint more than one broker in any given area.  Our approach is very simple. 

We give value to our brokers by exclusivity and products that their competition can’t access. We have been successful in our approach and our company and our brokers have prospered even in this soft market.


We are one of 30 Chartis agents with specialty privileges for Work Comp, including the only safety group program, the only PAYGO PROGRAM and the only payroll reporting program in the West coast, program for medical staff leasing companies, a program for social service programs and ability to quote ineligible classes among other privileges.  These programs are not available to regular appointed retailers or wholesalers. We also have the ability to quote risks that don’t fit Chartis at a much lower premium attachment point then other brokers.  We have the ability to quote WC up to $1mil and more in premium without going to different divisions of Chartis.   As of today we also just got Professional and D&O in house quoting and binding authority for Chartis.
