We transitioned from another captive manager just this year. The transition has been virtually flawless and the SRS team have done a great job of keeping all systems go since the transition.
Very intelligent managers/directors that offer a lot of support. Also very quick to respond to questions and provide technical information/advice.
I have and will continue to highly recommend the SRS team as the best captive manager I have worked with. Our needs are met each and every day, with timely responses and a high level of expertise. We consider SRS to be a very valued partner in the success of our overall captive program management.
