About GUARD Insurance Group

GUARD Insurance Group is the holding company for a number of affiliates that participate in various aspects of the insurance industry. We have also chosen to trade under that name. Our group includes four subsidiaries - AmGUARD, EastGUARD, NorGUARD, and WestGUARD - that write commercial insurance policies for small- to mid-sized businesses throughout our operating area . Two other GUARD affiliates provide support to our insurance companies, which ensures the delivery of a consistently high level of expertise and customer service. InterGUARD is a program manager that handles marketing, underwriting, policy issuance, compliance, premium collection, loss control, and claims on behalf of our insurers. GUARDCo coordinates a variety of activities related to claims and medical management, using the techniques of managed care. Together, these six affiliates give GUARD Insurance Group maximum flexibility in responding to opportunities within the marketplace without sacrificing efficiency or the quality of our product. Under the on-going guidance of our executive management team led by our founders, Susan and Judd Shoval, and Chief Executive Officer, Sy Foguel, we have worked to instill a corporate culture of innovation, growth, excellence, and superior service across the entire organization, hoping to create a unique "GUARD experience" that adds value above and beyond standard industry practices. Our "soldier" is intended to symbolize the protection and financial security provided to all of our clients. In May of 2007, GUARD Insurance Group became a wholly owned subsidiary of Clal Insurance Enterprises Holdings, Ltd. - providing additional resources that will allow us to pursue broader strategic plans for the future. Clal is Israel's largest insurance group and is publicly traded on the Tel-Aviv stock exchange with capitalization of $1.6 billion. GUARD is Clal's first investment in the insurance industry in the United States.
