Global Special Risks (GSR) is a full service MGU providing underwriting, claims administration, and related services from an international platform. GSR has office locations in New Orleans, Houston, and Dallas as well as in Calgary, Canada. GSR started in 1979 as a London Market Cover holder (a Managing General Agency for Lloyd’s and London Companies). Since that time, GSR has been at the forefront of creating new products specifically developed to meet the needs of energy and marine clients. GSR’s underwriting staff has broad, in-depth insurance expertise as well as significant experience in the marine and energy industries. On average, our employees have worked with GSR for over a decade in addition to prior insurance experience in most cases, giving them a thorough understanding of the business, an ability to place varied insurance risks and the ability to handle complex claims for clients. GSR responds to submissions with quality products tailored to specific needs. GSR’s long history with the London Market has resulted in GSR’s unique relationship with Lloyd’s Underwriters, who trust GSR to offer certain services on their behalf. Underwriters have given GSR this authority due to evidence of GSR’s professional handling of challenging risks and claims issues. When London Underwriters agree to cover a claim, GSR issues the payment on their behalf, eliminating the usual delays encountered when dealing with foreign insurance markets. GSR’s ability to advance claim payments on behalf of London Underwriters is unique and is a significant benefit to assureds and their agents who use GSR for their insurance placements.
