Who We Are

Risk Transfer Insurance Agency is a full service MGA that maintains a core discipline on providing insurance solutions for the under-served PEO and staffing industries. We utilize our industry expertise and carrier relationships to deliver consultative solutions for our clients, while also advising our clients on how to mitigate their risk exposures. Our understanding of the dynamic marketplace allows us to assist our clients in placing business that traditional brokers cannot.

Our History

Risk Transfer Insurance Agency was founded in December 2000 as a retail agency focusing on industries having some type of duress in procuring insurance.  PEOs and temporary staffing companies have been Risk Transfer’s core discipline since inception and continues to be the agency’s largest focus.  To date Risk Transfer has bound over $1,000,000,000 of PEO and staffing workers’ compensation premiums and formed numerous industry-specific carrier programs.

Our Clients Love Us

Risk Transfer saved our company!  Several years back, we experienced a shock loss and could not locate a single broker who would even consider quoting coverage.

Andy and Mark, two of the most well-versed, responsive, and professional individuals I have encountered, were up to the challenge and not only were they able to deliver comprehensive coverage from a reputable carrier, but they came in under budget as well.

I am so happy to have found Risk Transfer and would recommend them without reservation.

PEO Client

As a Staffing Industry HR Professional and Risk Manager, I know the value of having the right team in my corner. Even so, prior to partnering with Risk Transfer I underestimated the importance of having the right insurance agent.  The Risk Transfer team is genuinely invested in our success.

They understand our company, our mix of business, our risks and our internal practices.  Andy Kohler and the support team are true business partners providing claims support, contract guidance and strategic risk management throughout the year.

Staffing Client

At renewal, the partnership pays off.  Brad Isaacs and his team proactively vet the market and explore the best available options. By doing so they bring all the right carriers to the renewal table to maximize our coverage and minimize our risks.

I highly recommend Risk Transfer for any staffing firm that is committed to being the best while limiting their business risks.  They are exceptional!

That said, Risk Transfer doesn’t partner with just anyone so if you have the chance to partner with them, seize it.

Staffing Client


Having the comfort level knowing that you are working with the best of the best is priceless.

Our commitment gives you peace of mind knowing that you are working with a best-in-class agency that maintains an expertise in the areas that matter most to you and your clients.
