About Us

Quaker Special Risk (QSR) was founded in 1960 by Frank S. Walsh in a small, two desk office in Newark, NJ. Today, there are two more generations of Walshes and five office locations. We were acquired by Jencap in 2020, bringing even greater deep industry knowledge and coverage access to our agents and brokers.

Although we have grown in size and scope, our original values and commitment remain intact. Our goal continues to be to provide insurance agents and brokers with unique insurance solutions for even their most challenging risks.
