Since Avondale’s foundation in 2006, we have worked with our trusted producers through the pit of a soft market, through a run of unprecedented natural capacities and now into a challenging market with capacity shortfalls putting immense pressure on pricing, terms and conditions. We are proud to have represented a virtually unchanged carrier panel through such turbulent market conditions and to have remained a consistent market for our partners.

Avondale's underwriting platform combines proprietary catastrophe modeling and risk assessment tools with a professional, property only, underwriting staff. Our underwriters use decades of experience to provide our wholesale clients with the creative and comprehensive coverage solutions required to succeed.

Avondale is not encumbered by big company bureaucracy, allowing us to move quickly as the needs of our clients change. We understand that even as technology changes our business, it will always remain rooted in relationships and will thrive when we are aligned with our clients in a common goal.

It's important to us that our clients can take their relationship with Avondale to the bank over a period of years and know that when the market once again invariably hits a crisis point, we'll be there for those partners that have supported us. This commitment is underscored by our capacity partners who year after year have extended additional authority and support to us.- Danny Hinchliffe,
President and CEO
