At our core, we view underwriting as a craft. Solving our customers’ specialty insurance needs is job one at Upland.  What separates us from our competitors is that we seek to blend the best of the “old school” underwriting with the “new school” analytics & technology.

That starts with people.  Across the organization, we seek to hire people with what we call a “we entrepreneur” quality.  These people demonstrate the drive to improve themselves and the wisdom to know they are more successful as part of a team.

We actually “eat our own cooking”.  Upland retains most of our risk.   About one-third of our employees have invested their personal capital in Upland.   All of this seems to appeal to our blue-chip reinsurance panel, who support us in our mission.

With no technology legacy, Upland seeks to add the best of the "new world" world innovation to an "old school" foundation.  We are methodically deploying modern analytics and technology to support decision making as well as customer service.  Different than some of our peers, Upland will only highlight its benefits as it delivers them, not before.

Combining the best of the “old” and the “new” allows us to be nimble & disciplined. We believe this makes Upland better at solving our customers’ specialty insurance needs throughout market cycles for the long-term benefit of all.
