Our People

Private JetIn a world becoming exponentially more complex, insurance purchasers face new challenges that cannot be solved by traditional insurance strategies. IOA’s Aerospace Division produces risk management strategies that allows our domestic and internationally based clients to successfully navigate operational, financial, regulatory and political risks. We approach our clients from a risk consultancy perspective, much more than selling insurance.

IOA’s seasoned experts possess an innate grasp for the industry, and we implement a focused approach to placing coverage and maximizing business resources. By evaluating current and future liabilities, our leaders will develop and activate a risk transfer program to insure an advantage in friendly skies.
