Since our origins in 1954, The Hull Group has positioned itself as a boutique brokerage that focuses on serving the insurance needs of clients in select industries, allowing us to hone our expertise and develop partnerships that continue to be strengthened over time. Although we have successfully served clients from a broad range of industry sectors, our core focus remains on serving the insurance and risk management needs of the following industries:
- Communications and Media. Considered a pioneer in this space, The Hull Group has served the insurance needs of major industry players across telecommunications, TV broadcasting, film production, entertainment, and marketing. Serving the likes of Canada’s largest provider of cellular voice and data, one of the most prestigious and internationally recognized film festivals, as well as Canada’s largest cable television provider for several years has deepened our roots in these industries.
- Information Technology. In today’s day and age, this is arguably an industry that ties everything together. Our particular focus stems from the recognition that IT is one of the largest and fastest growing industries, whereby competency in this area is fundamental to understanding business opportunity and risk in general. Keeping pace in such a fast moving space involves experts dedicated to staying abreast of trends and active involvement, such as The Hull Group’s sponsorship of industry organizations like AceTech Ontario, and our partnership with IT cyber security experts Watsec.
- Professional Services. When most consumers think about insurance, mostly property damage and liability for bodily injury come to mind. However, for service oriented businesses, a primary loss exposure is the failure to perform or a defect in a service provided, resulting in financial injury to a customer. Working with clients across a broad spectrum of services, including one of the Big Four auditors, as well as one of Canada’s largest providers of talent management and staffing solutions, has solidified our position as a brokerage of choice when it comes to professional liability protection.
- Manufacturing and Large Retail. Many businesses operating in this space are faced with several challenges when it comes to foreign sales, distribution and operations. Having an expert to guide you through the complicated waters of foreign regulations while still keeping your business fully protected is integral to maintaining smooth operations and continued growth. The Hull Group has held longstanding partnerships with industry leaders in food packaging and distribution, electronic product development and manufacturing, as well as numerous other product retail and manufacturing categories.
Taking a specialist (rather than a generalist) approach has not only allowed us to continually hone our expertise and build longstanding industry partnerships, but it has also allowed us to develop specialized insurance programs with a pool of preferred insurers who have supported us in tailoring these programs to the unique needs of clients who operate in our areas of focus.
