Education is a catalyst for change, driving social progress, cultural achievements, and economic advancement worldwide and in local communities. Alexander Holburn has an abiding commitment to supporting school boards, private educational institutions, and insurers of public schools.  We understand the challenges that educational institutions must navigate, from securing funding to managing financial and reputational risks.
