An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, or so the old adage goes. That is especially true in the rapidly-evolving cannabis industry. Unlike businesses in other sectors, cannabis companies have unique challenges and, due to legal ambiguities prevalent in this space, they have been grossly underserved when it comes to highly-regulated industries like banking, securities and insurance. In fact, until just a few years ago, most institutional service providers either refused, or were prohibited from, working with cannabis companies.
HUB International is one of the few major insurance brokers that provides an array of insurance options for cannabis companies. Having developed an entire vertical serving the cannabis sector, HUB International now serves cannabis industry clients in 33 states, throughout Canada and other countries around the world where cannabis is legal.
In this Pro Series interview, practice leader TJ Frost explains how HUB International has capacity to provide coverage for just about every size and type of company in the cannabis industry and explores what stakeholders should expect in terms of coverage. What is, perhaps, most compelling about TJ is his passion for the sector that was born from a personal loss, which inspired him to serve as an unrelenting advocate to help cannabis companies navigate the complexities of insuring their businesses against unexpected losses.
