About Foa & Son

For more than 155 years, Foa & Son has believed that its owners and management team need to understand our clients’ activities and consequent risks in order to structure insurance solutions that work. Through five generations of family ownership, Foa & Son continues to operate by this belief, all the while embracing the constant change that faces our clients, our own insurance sector, and the world around us.

Our local knowledge, national reach, and international capabilities continue the legacy and vision of our founder, Fortunato Foa, who sought to change the way clients viewed and managed risk. Our expertise as an international broker began when Mario Foa moved the firm’s insurance business from Genoa, Italy, where it was founded, via Switzerland, to New York in 1935. To this day, all of our U.S. offices continue to work with insurance companies and intermediaries all over the world.

The combination of our continuing investment in developing our broad knowledge of our clients’ industries, along with our focus on the niche expertise required to insure the needs of our clients allows Foa & Son to continue its industry-leading client service and retention levels. Foa & Son is currently owned and managed by its fifth generation leader, Justin Foa, who continues to build the firm’s reputation for deep knowledge in industries such as real estate, construction, hospitality, food, pharmaceuticals, municipalities, manufacturers, distributors, family offices and social services. Each business practice at Foa & Son is led by a Senior Account Executive with at least 25 years of industry insurance. Foa & Son can talk with you about the specifics of risk and insurance in your business.
