Our mission is to partner with our clients to serve their risk management and insurance needs and provide them with the most comprehensive insurance coverages they need to manage their business risk. Each Practice Area at Foa & Son is headed by a senior executive with at least 25 years of insurance experience. Our local knowledge, national experience, and international capabilities continue the legacy of our founder, Fortunato Foa, who sought to change the way companies viewed and managed risk.
Owners and Founders
After more than 155 years as International Insurance Brokers, only one thing remains the same: change. Since 1861, five generations of Foas have led the firm to be responsive to the changing needs of our clients and to assess exposures and manage risks.
Every Practice at Foa & Son is headed by a Senior Account Executive with at least 25 years of insurance experience. Our local knowledge, national experience, and international capabilities continue the legacy of our founder, Fortunato Foa.
Foa & Son’s Commercial Insurance Division, Private Insurance Advisory Service, Corporate Benefits Practice, Multinational Services Division, and Blue Water Hull Division, provide insurance solutions to some of the USA’s, and the world’s most prestigious firms.
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 USA offices continue to work with insurance companies and intermediaries all over the world.
Our in-depth knowledge and experience extends to all principal sectors including: luxury brands, real estate, hospitality, manufacturers, distributors, financial and professional service firms, not-for-profits, municipalities, educational institutions, and shipowners.
“Our clients are our principals, and we take that responsibility very, very seriously. We are committed to being trusted advisors to our clients. Our interests remain independent on behalf of our clients – we have never had a financial stake in any insurer.”
