Rokstone Farm Risks Proudly Partners with the OIA

We are proud to announce our partnership with the Ohio Insurance Agents Association (OIA).

Rokstone Farm Risks, which works alongside Rokstone Agriculture Risk Underwriters in the US, is renowned for delivering product innovation and strong capacity, catering to every stage of the farm and ranch risk lifestyle.

By pairing quality underwriting expertise with an award-winning online quote and bind experience, we can improve agent experience while boosting their agility in addressing emerging exposures and ensuring they can better serve their clients.

A Strategic Collaboration for Local Success

In discussing the partnership, Michael Theibert, Senior Vice President of Rokstone Farms Risks, emphasized the significance of establishing strong connections with local, independent agents who serve as the primary distribution channel for the recently launched product in Ohio.

He said, “We are delighted to partner with OIA. It’s a natural collaboration that ensures we are better placed to address local agent needs and provide them with responsive solutions that help them achieve a competitive advantage in the market.”

The solutions Michael refers to include the recently introduced Farm and Ranch Package Policy, which combines Property, Auto, and Excess coverage. He continued, “Together, Rokstone and the OIA can significantly contribute to the success of independent insurance agents state-wide.”

Jeff Smith, Chief Executive Officer of the OIA, commented, “Our members are still seeing carriers pull out of this space, change their terms, and continue to take significant rate increases. So, having a new carrier at this time is critical for our independent agencies to remain competitive within the agribusiness vertical.”
