H/T Barry Ritholtz

Buchmueller started at Chubb and later worked at American International Group before he realized that the industry needed a dose of disruption. Too many insurers operate as if they’re a monopoly, which he said provided an opening for an insurer that emphasized transparency via mutual ownership.

Buchmueller left AIG in 2006 to found PURE Insurance (Privilege Underwriters Reciprocal Exchange). Structured as a mutual, it is unique amongst insurers, growing at 40% year over year, and running at over $650 million per year in premiums. PURE was established to be that competition, via the firm’s values are transparency, low cost, alignment of interests with their insured.
