CHES Special Risk expands footprint in Quebec

CHES Special Risk is expanding its footprint in Quebec as it has announced the opening of an office in Montreal and the launch of CHES Solutions Spécialisées, which offers brokers in the province access to the MGA’s product offerings.

As part of this expansion, the firm has hired Gabriel Morneau as director and senior underwriter for CHES Solutions Spécialisées.

“We are delighted to welcome Gabriel to the company as it strengthens our thriving product offerings,” said Gary Hirst, president, CHES Special Risk. “His strong experience in developing new and innovative products will be invaluable to CHES Solutions Spécialisées as we continue to provide our broker clients with one of the most expansive product offerings in the industry, especially at this time where there is market movement and uncertainty.”

CHES Special Risk was established as an MGA and wholesale broker in 2004. As an independent firm, it is not owned by a direct writer or a bank, nor by retail brokers.

Last June, it launched a new range of products to address active shooter and terrorism risks. The company’s active assailant insurance package protects against losses businesses and their owners could sustain following an active shooter event.
