HIIG announces name change to Skyward Specialty

P&C provider Houston International Insurance Group announced the change of its company name to Skyward Specialty (Skyward Specialty).

“The name ‘Skyward Specialty Insurance’ more clearly describes who we are today, better reflects our strategy, and conveys the company’s promise to our clients and distribution partners. The word ‘Skyward’ is about the power to see farther and have a broader perspective, while ‘Specialty’ reinforces the company’s self-identification with products and solutions that are tailored to our clients’ unique and special needs. This is more than a new name. This rebrand is part of a dynamic shift within our company and the insurance industry at large. Recognizing the challenges our clients face, Skyward Specialty aims to create lasting impact at a time of dramatic change. The level of risk today is different and has never been greater; Skyward Specialty is about an adjustment of perspective and the capabilities needed to better address those challenges and risks to achieve success beyond convention.” – Skyward Chief Executive Officer Andrew Robinson.

Over the past few months, Skyward Specialty announced a new business focused on serving the E&S (excess and surplus) wholesale brokerage channel for their liability and property needs; the expansion of its private company and launch of an excess public Directors & Officers (D&O) offering capability, as well as the expansion of its capabilities in large commercial property.

“Skyward Specialty is poised to accelerate growth in the specialty niches we serve with products borne from uncommon insight and creative approaches to execution. This brand launch was made with our employees and their families, our distribution partners and clients, and our communities and investors in mind. It provides a wonderful touchstone for our future,” continued Robinson.
