Trends in the Surplus Lines Industry

Trends in the Surplus Lines Industry

Quick Overview

Let's face it. Hard markets come and soft markets go, but no matter how loose or tight the underwriting guidelines get, there will always be risks that the standard market will look at and reject. They are too out of the box, too new, or too far from their underwriting appetite. Effective use of the surplus lines marketplace can increase revenues and assist in retaining key clients. Join us as Chris Behymer helps us to understand what's going on in this vital segment of the insurance marketplace.

While E&S premiums make up a relatively small slice of the total property and casualty industry, Excess and Surplus lines carriers and their wholesale partners play an important role in the insurance marketplace.  Regardless of which cycle we are in, there will always be risks that fall outside of the comfort zone and risk appetite of standard carriers. 

This webinar will focus on:

  • Year-to-date industry results with emphasis on E&S.
  • Summary of the latest A.M. Best Report on Surplus Lines.
  • An analysis of the composition of the wholesale distribution system.  How has it changed in the past couple of years and what can we expect in the future.
  • A summary of new products being developed or recently introduced by Surplus Lines carriers.
  • Lines and classes of business where E&S carriers are experiencing solid growth and some of the reasons for the premium increases.
