Arbour National

Arbour National is dedicated to the long-term ownership of specialty Property & Casualty insurance carriers led by extraordinary teams. We aim to build an enduring platform by partnering with proven carriers in diverse specialty segments. Our goal is to create an environment where leadership teams have the resources and support of a larger group while maintaining the autonomy and ownership culture of an independent carrier.

We are a privately held insurance holding company based in Raleigh, North Carolina, with a multidisciplinary team that has experience in insurance, entrepreneurship and investing. Arbour National is proud to be backed by Investors Management Corporation (IMC), which brings a 50-year track record from multiple lines of business.

A framework that supports climbing flora — a metaphor for what Arbour National does for our growing partner companies.


Insurance is all about people. We know that the best teams in the right environment will always win in the long run, generating far better outcomes for employees, policyholders, business partners, communities and shareholders.

We partner with high-performing teams and strongly believe that management should be co-owners in the business. Each of the companies we partner with retains its unique identity and operational autonomy.

With a permanent capital base and a 100-year mentality, we have no requirement to sell and instead focus our leadership teams on building enduring businesses.

Arbour National’s role is to help create that environment — where leadership teams have a long-term horizon, a strong financial foundation and the support to pursue steady, rational growth.
