PURE’s premiums have experienced unprecedented organic growth each year since inception. Based on current estimates, we expect 2017 to be no different.
No personal lines insurer in the U.S. is growing faster than PURE*. We’re proud of the fact that we’ve maintained disciplined underwriting during our growth, as reflected by our loss ratio, a measure of underwriting health and profitability. It’s also among the best in the industry.

We’re proud that 96% of PURE members whose policies expired in the last year chose to renew. This is especially remarkable since most members would have been paid if they chose not to*.

We believe that creating exceptional member enthusiasm is one of the strongest ways to build and sustain top-tier growth over the long run. We use Net Promoter Score® (NPS) to measure that enthusiasm, to understand how it is created or threatened and to constantly improve the member experience. We’re proud of our results and the reactions of our members inspire us to improve every day.

PURE was founded and is led by an executive team with deep expertise in the HNW insurance category and a track record of strong operating results.
After more than a decade with the Chubb Group, Ross Buchmueller founded AIG Private Client Group in the late 1990s. Together with an outstanding team of professionals, they succeeded at creating a thriving specialist insurance operation using their deep expertise in the high net worth market.
In 2006, Ross and two colleagues, Martin Hartley and Jeff Paraschac, set their sights on building a newer and better model grounded in alignment of interests with the policyholder. PURE began accepting new members the following year.
In 2014, Ross Buchmueller was recognized as EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year.
The PURE Group is rated A- (Excellent) for financial strength from A.M. Best and received a “positive outlook” for the second year in a row in 2016. The rating is reflective of PURE’s capitalization, comprehensive reinsurance program, and operating performance. According to A.M. Best, “The PURE management team, with extensive experience in the niche market of high net worth personal lines, has built a strong culture of service supported by scalable operating systems.”
In 2015, Privilege Underwriters, Inc., the holding company for the PURE Group of Insurance Companies recapitalized with investments from Stone Point Capital and KKR – two of the world’s preeminent private equity investors – in addition to XL Catlin. This recapitalization enables PURE’s continued independence in a period of massive consolidation in the industry.
