Our division team includes marine professionals that are highly skilled in dealing with complex international trade and logistics exposures, from the traditional marine cargo and domestic transit coverages to the more up–to-the-minute solutions; including stock throughput, project cargo and political risk. Operating businesses on the waterfront, including off-vessel, offshore rig, and  companies involved with exploration construction to production, and support units to the marine and energy industry benefit from Frenkel & Company’s 140 years of experience in meeting the marine industry’s insurance needs.

Through market research and our association with highly-respected industry specific associations, including the American Institute of Marine Underwriters, we keep abreast of trends impacting the marine industry. These business relationships result in the forward-thinking risk-management protocol that we offer our clients.  Frenkel & Company’s market presence and our relationships with key marine insurers afford us market leverage that also translates into better pricing, broader coverage terms, and quicker response time. These long term relationships are enhanced by our stellar reputation in the insurance industry, which in turn generates Frenkel’s ability to tailor policy terms that address our marine clients’ specific needs.

In addition to selling and servicing marine-related insurance products, Frenkel & Company’s Marine Division provides beyond-the-basics technical assistance, including advice on limiting a business’s liabilities, contract reviews, analysis of potential exposures, claims advocacy, and loss control. Our marine professionals work seamlessly with the other Frenkel & Company divisions to ensure that our clients receive comprehensive and coordinated service.
