Who We Are

To meet the needs and exceed the expectations of our clients, Sterling has assembled one of the most admired, trusted, professional and dedicated support staffs in the industry. Integrity, professionalism, and value added services are the hallmarks of the Sterling Resources tradition.

Our staff is composed of high-level insurance professionals with decades of experience in case analysis, field underwriting and carrier negotiation. We do not provide estate planning services, nor do we offer tax or legal advice.  Rather, with our considerable experience in these areas, we work in conjunction with trusted advisors and family office professionals to design and implement the insurance coverage which creates the liquidity necessary for estate and business succession plans to succeed.

Well known by advisors of ultra-high net worth families and philanthropic organizations, the Sterling Resources team has been working together to serve clients for over two decades. The average length of service of Sterling’s core support team is in excess of sixteen years. The absence of staff turnover is reflective of an environment conducive to building long term relationships, internally and with our clients and their advisors. This continued level of commitment has laid a foundation that enables us to provide exceptional service to our clients well into the future.
