Our Mission

The overarching goal of the Barnstable is to provide a sustainable, high quality property insurance market on Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, and the Southcoast of Massachusetts. The greatest risk to the Company in fulfilling its mission is exposure to extreme weather events such as hurricanes due to its concentration of business in a confined geographic area. While hurricanes have been very infrequent in New England, our objective is to be financially and operationally ready when one hits.
