Everyone Said No. Argo Said Yes – and Won Bigger and Bigger Projects for This Broker 

Argo Group partnered with National Coverage to find an innovative solution for a new construction client other carriers denied.

National Coverage faced an unusual challenge: how to insure a construction client with no loss history. Argo Group helped them make it happen – and positioned National to insure additional projects worth tens of millions of dollars.

  • Argo stepped up, helping the insured launch a new business in a tough market. Ryan Darragh, President of National Coverage, says his client was struggling to break into the challenging New York construction market. “There was a lot on the line for this contractor. They were starting their own business. If that goes under, where do you go next?”
  • Argo collaborated with National Coverage and the insured to find an innovative solution. National Coverage, Argo and the insured developed an approach to safety and claims. “We are problem solvers,” says Ashley Heline, AVP Marketing & Producer Management at Argo Group. “We work closely with the insured and broker to find a solution that works for everybody.” 
  • Argo established a lucrative partnership that is still reaping rewards. Thanks to the partnership with Argo, the insured is winning jobs up to $60 million for some of the biggest owners in New York City. “This contractor, and almost every contract that’s stuck with Argo for a long time, stays with Argo because they don’t forget who was there for them when nobody wanted to be,” says Darragh.
