Archived Our Company (updated 2023)

Originally incorporated in 1985, in 2011 we renamed our company Fair American Insurance and Reinsurance Company with a renewed focus on broadening our primary capabilities in service of existing TransRe customers and those companies and administrators/brokers who had unique needs and sought innovative solutions. Why Fair American? We take our name from one of the most renowned ships of the Revolutionary War. The Fair American was a brig built in 1778 that sailed out of South Carolina and later Philadelphia.

In her day, the Fair American was nimble, exceptionally fast, and highly successful. In the words of author John Lehman, she was an “obviously fast purpose built” vessel manned by a small, highly skilled and exceptionally successful crew, focused on the singular mission to serve the newly formed republic.

Today, abbreviated as FAIRCO, we are a small, focused and highly skilled group of insurance professionals determined to serve the needs of our clients. Nimble, fast, and purpose built to serve the unique needs of the insurance industry, FAIRCO seeks to expand upon the reputation of its namesake and contribute to the success of whatever project our clients seek to undertake.
