About us

At Rokstone, our purpose is simple: to inspire confidence.

Whether it’s for our capacity providers, who want to know that their money is protected, or for our brokers, who want to know that they can easily place their risks, we understand the importance of always delivering. It’s why we deploy capacity quickly and efficiently across uncorrelated markets. It’s why we provide rapid access to developed portfolios in niche markets. It’s why we are highly diversified by both product line and distribution source. And it’s why all our portfolios are actuarially managed, with the embedded culture of an insurer and the agility of an MGA. Combine all this with our proprietary underwriting models, our deeply knowledgeable and experienced front-line underwriters and an unwavering commitment to digital transformation and data-driven underwriting, it’s no surprise that we are growing fast and already one of the biggest global (re)insurance MGAs.

Leadership team

Our leaders combine significant experience, deep knowledge and an unwavering commitment to continual innovation to set the direction of our business. Like every member of our team, they are focused on making insurance better for the brokers we work with across the globe and our capacity providers.

We are infectiously entrepreneurial. We strive for greatness and never stop exploring how to do things better.

For us, culture isn’t just something we talk about now and again. It’s a vital part of how we work; it makes us what we are. We’re bold, pro-active and we’re never afraid to challenge the status quo. And we work hard to ensure that our people love being a part of the Aventum family. Because if our people love what they do, and are free to be everything they can be, they deliver better outcomes for our clients and our partners time and time again.
