The Company excels by combining wholesale transactional brokerage with program management and Managing General Agency capabilities.

ClearView Risk is the parent company of Southwest Risk, LP, Southwest Risk Agency Services, Strata Underwriting Managers and Strata Claims Management.

We exist to create value for our stakeholders, employees and clients by investing in resources that serve the needs of independent retail insurance agencies and brokers, empowering them to serve even their most at-risk clientele with an array of insurance products and services from premier carriers. Our cutting edge technology enables us to serve these interests with the speed, accuracy and flexibility that the market demands.

We aspire to set a new standard in the wholesale E&S space by putting employees first. Going far beyond most corporate standards, we take continuous, demonstrable actions to ensure that our workplaces are ones where employees can thrive, both professionally and personally. This employee-first culture has helped us attract and retain some of the brightest, most capable and most passionate people in the insurance industry.
