We began as the Rain and Hail Insurance Bureau back in 1919 as a leader in developing sound insurance programs. The first generation of Rain and Hail managers are still recognized as pioneers in the crop insurance industry. In addition to forming one of the nation's first risk management pools in 1919, they were largely responsible for establishing equitable adjusting and rating procedures. This is the groundwork of strength that led to the firm's 1981 reorganization as an employee-owned managing general agency. In 2010, Rain and Hail was acquired by Chubb, solidifying our financial strength.
We are a company firmly rooted in agriculture for over a century. We protect farmers and ranchers now as well as the future of the industry. Farming and ranching can be risk business, which is why we strive to provide the best risk management options to keep farms and ranches running for generations to come.
