    Viewing the world through the HSB lens gives you a glimpse of how our approach to insurance, engineering, and technology can work to help you mitigate and manage risk. And there’s no better place to meet us and realize that vision than RIMS RISKWORLD 2024 in San Diego. Meet with HSB leaders to learn more about the critical trends we are following that are changing risk scenarios and how working together we can provide customers with the solutions they will need in the future.

    HSB brings into sharp focus the topics and trends that impact the specialty insurance solutions we bring to market. We see things that others may not. When clients partner with HSB, they strengthen their offerings and bring value to their customers. Put simply, clients benefit from our focus.

    HSB has become the leading equipment breakdown insurer in North America by developing deep engineering expertise and capabilities to underwrite virtually any risk from large real estate schedules to heavy industry. And we’re not standing still, either. HSB has introduced many new coverages over the past 25 years to respond to advances in technology and a changing world. HSB scans the horizon for the trends creating new exposures, and we’re using gained insights to develop innovative solutions that can address emerging needs.

    A tech-forward approach to risk

    HSB delivers innovative technology solutions to help customers mitigate property and equipment breakdown risks. As technology is rapidly changing, so is our effort to predict, prevent, and insure emerging risks. We have built an ecosystem of technology partners with companies like HELIXintel and our own Sensor Solutions by HSB™, all designed to solve real problems, right now.

    We also look to solve problems of the future, preparing for how artificial intelligence will impact the insurance industry. HSB co-wrote a white paper with Munich Re to evaluate impacts to coverage. Download the white paper.
