About Foa & Son

For more than 150 years, Foa & Son has stood on its belief that its owners and team need to be experts in our clients’ industries in order to build insurance solutions that work. Through five generations of family owners, Foa & Son continues to operate by this belief, while embracing the constant change that faces our clients, our industry, and the world around us.

Our local knowledge, national reach, and international capabilities continue the legacy and vision of our founder, Fortunato Foa, who sought to change the way companies viewed and managed risk. Our expertise as an international broker began when Mario Foa moved the firm’s insurance business from Genoa, Italy, via Switzerland, to New York in 1935. To this day, all of our U.S. offices continue to work with insurance companies and intermediaries all over the world.

The combination of continued investment in developing the broad knowledge base of the industries that we represent with our focus on the niche underwriting needs of clients allows Foa & Son to continue its industry-leading service and retention levels. Foa & Son is currently owned and managed by the 5th generation, Justin Foa, who continues to build the firm’s expertise in industries such as real estate, construction, hospitality, food, pharmaceuticals, municipalities, family offices and social services. Each business practice at Foa & Son is led by a Senior Account Executive with at least 25 years of industry insurance.
