McGriff Insurance Services Broker Todd Burack Recognized as a 2021 Renewable Energy Power Broker
Todd Burack, Assistant Vice President, McGriff Insurance Services
When it comes to finding coverage for complex solar portfolios, Todd Burack has proved to his clients that he puts in the work necessary to understand their needs.
“Todd has been instrumental in placing coverage for some of our solar portfolios that would be a significant challenge on their own in this hard market,” said one corporate risk manager.
“He has provided extensive consulting, from reviewing the myriad contracts that come with a solar project to suggesting other potential insurance approaches, such as parametric.”
A financial executive at another client noted that “on top of the difficult market conditions was the need for us and McGriff to satisfy the requests of the tax-equity investors for each of our renewable projects.
Also, immediately prior to our renewal, we acquired a wind facility that experienced significant losses. The claim was well known throughout the market and natural catastrophe became a huge focus in all discussions with insurers.”
Against that backdrop, the company “emerged from the 2020 renewal very successfully and this is much attributed to the precise due diligence, phenomenal negotiations, and flexibility that Todd exerted. During the planning, marketing and negotiation phase with the market, it was clear that Todd did all his homework to negotiate the best deal. He examined all the model results of potential losses from extreme weather impact on all of our renewable assets, as well as all our existing limits, sublimits and deductible cap.”
