Continuing the theme of clear policy language without reliance on outdated terms and conditions, our new Management Liability & Professional Liability products make it easy to customize coverage to suit your clients’ needs. The Solution is part of our commitment to provide niche products and services to better provide our customers with the tools they truly need. It is also designed to help you turn your objectives into successes while being especially respectful of your time – it’s the industry’s shortest, clearest primary policy offered in this space.

The Solution for Private Companies

The Solution for Private Companies or Not-for-profit Organizations covers D&O, EPL, Fiduciary Liability and Crime. With simple claim reporting and common policy definitions, this non-rescindable policy is readily adaptable to emerging business trends.

The Solution for Commercial E&O

The Solution for commercial E&O covers primary and excess miscellaneous E&O, technology, media liability, privacy and network security, as well as E&O for professional firms. This form continues our trend of simplification with uniform terms and conditions for all policies.

Coming soon: The Solution for Financial Institutions

The Solution for financial institutions will cover D&O, E&O, EPL, fiduciary and bond on a primary and excess basis. It features the same, simplified terms and conditions of other Solution portfolio products.
