Freedom Specialty Insurance is now Nationwide

October 08, 2015

Columbus, OH - Starting today, Freedom Specialty Insurance Company will be rebranded as Nationwide. We’re making the change to leverage Nationwide’s brand recognition, diverse product offerings, and financial stability.

“This is part of our overall brand strategy and will help build the financial strength of Nationwide,” said Tom Iorio, vice president, Nationwide Management Liability and Specialty. “The company’s constant support has enabled us to grow, prosper, and become a leader in our industry.”

Customers will continue to enjoy the stability of a Fortune 100 company with superior credit ratings. They’ll also receive the agility and responsiveness of a niche insurance carrier that provides excellent claim service and one-on-one support from risk solution underwriters.

“Though our brand has changed, our formula for success has not,” Iorio said. “We will remain steadfast in our commitment to our partners and the specialized solutions they’ve come to expect from us. We will also continue to add products each year to our already comprehensive suite of solutions, including Surety.”
