H.W. Kaufman Group – Why Work With Us?

OUR PURPOSE

At Kaufman Financial Group, we are committed to providing unsurpassed service to insurance brokers, agents and carriers. Our mission is to make the lives of our broker and agent partners easier and more successful. We are fully dedicated to serving their unique challenges by providing access to coverage for difficult risks requiring innovative solutions on a regional, national, and international basis.
 

OUR STRENGTHS

Each of the distinct companies in the Kaufman Financial Group benefits from being a part of our global network. That collective connection allows us to better judge risk and provide the highest level of service to our clients and partners.
 
The depth of services provided by our collective companies sets us apart:
  • An extensive network of offices across the country as well as international relationships with European brokerage.
  • The ability to provide agents, brokers, and carriers the most competitive pricing, unrivaled expertise, and unparalleled customer service.
  •  Subsidiaries committed to providing access to coverage for difficult risks requiring innovative solutions on a regional, national, and international basis.

OUR GLOBAL NETWORK

Nearly 1,200 dedicated professionals worldwide constitute the Kaufman Financial Group. We currently have an extensive network of 50 offices across the globe dedicated to conducting business with the highest degree of integrity. And we are still growing – both domestically and internationally.
With the acquisition of the Chesterfield Group, a London-based broker, we have made our international brokerage presence even stronger by furthering our global capabilities and clout.
 


This is not your typical insurance company. Our employees do not get to work on the same thing day in and day out. When someone needs coverage for the unique, the unusual, or the unconventional, they come to us. Leave the mundane auto and life insurance programs to someone else.  We’re specialists. Our employees deliver insurance for everything from kidnapping and ransom to high-speed racing boats, skyscrapers and professional athletes. We even insure extreme sporting events including world famous skiers and athletes performing mid-air twists and turns down a man-made snow hill in the warm streets of California. Our team can write, insure, and finance specialty insurance policies that other companies cannot handle.

OUR PEOPLE

Our companies are comprised of talented individuals, and we also encourage each member of these teams to realize their full potential. In addition, we value and respect the differences and diversity within our organization.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at H.W. Kaufman Group (Farmington Hills, MI) in June 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online, then was sent an email requesting a phone interview. Had a half hour phone interview with a recruiter and intern. I was then asked to come in for an in person interview with the recruiter, intern, position supervisor, and one of the VPs. I was not selected for the next step in the process (interview with executives, and then another interview/meeting with the CEO).

    • There were many situational questions, including describing a time when I had conflicting priorities, and how I handled it.   Answer Question
