2020 Annual Report

Once again, it is my honor to be the bearer of great news regarding your partnership with TBG. Throughout 2020 we were able to build on the last several years of success and create
positive momentum for the years ahead. During the last 5 years we surpassed many benchmarks and set new records for the fund. Today, I feel TBG has become the established, reliable fund — the one considered Blue Chip in our industry.

Of course no one person can take credit for all of this because the TBG Fund belongs to all of us. We did this together. Our faithful members, our hardworking agents, our board of directors, the underwriters, claims, safety services, marketing, finance… the list goes on and on. Together we’ve built a fund that has become the bellwether in the industry. Work comp funds from all over the country are looking to TBG for best practices. They look to us for our experience and expertise in managing a work comp fund in the construction industry while, steadily growing the value of the fund and creating sustainability year over year.
