Who We Are

In 1919, a bold young entrepreneur named Cornelius Vander Starr went to Shanghai, China and built a thriving insurance agency that blended international expertise with local knowledge to form what would become known as the Starr Companies.

Today, we are one of the largest and fastest-growing insurance companies in the world, delivering unparalleled service, expert underwriting and leveraging a deep network of relationships within the brokerage community on behalf of our clients.

We can do these things because our people are our greatest strength.

Starr Companies believes in finding people of uncommon skill, character and ability – and empowering them. We hand-pick the industry’s brightest minds, and recruit from the world’s best universities to innovate the solutions you need for years to come.
