The W.R. Berkley Corporation was founded by a graduate of the Harvard business school, while he was finishing his last year. The company started small with only $2,500 in equity. After the first acquisition of the Admiral Insurance Company in 1972, W.R. Berkley got its official start. Using shrewd business techniques while utilizing efficient business practices, the company was able to transform itself into a major insurance acquisition source. While the company offers auto insurance, it is not a central focus of their business. The company simply acquires small insurance firms, allows them to continue providing policies under the W.R. Berkley name, and takes the profit to reinvest elsewhere. While the company has a strong financial background, customer service is not a priority as it is left to the individual companies to decide on. This should not be a turn-off to the company as they are well-known for paying out claims quickly as they have the assets on hand. In addition the company if very stable; W.R. Berkley processes over 200 million dollars in gross premiums per year.
