Company Description

Frenkel & Company is an independent insurance broker that was established in 1878. Currently, we have two programs under management----the Cosmetic Insurance Services Program--- or CIS as it is most commonly refered to--- and the Frenkel Psych Program. We act in an MGA Capacity for both of our exclusive programs.

Frenkel is structured as a flat organization. Our engineering service capabilities and claims management strategy sets us apart from other insurance brokerages. This structure allows for expedient horizontal and vertical communication between Frenkel employees and clients. The result is a timely and thoughtful response to our clients’ questions. Creative risk management and claims evaluations are key to Frenkel’s long term relationships with clients in both the Property and Casualty divisions of Frenkel and also in *Frenkel’s Benefit practice. We are known for our astute evaluations of risk management and claims issues, and the formulation of economically efficient coverage positions and options often missed by seasoned risk managers.

Published surveys of United States insurance brokers consistently point to Frenkel’s stellar reputation and industry leadership. We are consistently ranked in the top fifty brokers surveyed annually by Insurance Journal.

Frenkel is a member of the Council of Insurance Agents and Brokers (CIAB) and a New York partner in Assurex Global. Our management team maintains leadership positions on the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation (IICF), and other regional community outreach programs
