2020 Sponsors

I’ve been a partner/sponsor at the event almost going back to its inception. We feel that it’s a value to us as a firm to partner with Lockton because it’s a worthy platform to provide education and networking for our brokers not only with Lockton associates, but with the insured’s we partner together on as well. The Symposium has done a tremendous job of keeping the content fresh and providing value each and every year. Matthew Brott


We have attended, participated in, and sponsored the Lockton Complex Risk Symposium for several years now. As a relatively young firm, we have found that our sponsorship has been helpful in continuing to build brand awareness in the insurance community, and the networking opportunities provided by the Symposium have proven very valuable to us. The Claro Group is proud to be a sponsor. John Cadarette, Jr.

It has been a great pleasure to support and take part in your Complex Risk Symposiums. Annually it is a phenomenal event and the bar gets set higher year after year. There are many great attributes of the forum however undoubtedly for me the main aspects include the content of the seminar including always timely and very important topics in our constantly changing industry, and the views from very senior insurance company leaders. Yourself and Lockton put a ton of work into this, it is a wonderfully organized event, and it shows. The Risk Management community that takes part, and other esteemed insurance markets, make this a “who’s who” event for the industry and the symposium allows plenty of opportunities for learning where the industry sits today, the primary exposure topics at front of mind, and ultimately how to be a better risk manager.
