Future expansion is planned in Florida and tier 1 and 2 counties along the Eastern Seaboard.
The new homeowners insurance policy can reportadly be quoted and bound through ICAT Online, offering broad, flexible coverage options in minutes.
ICAT Homeowners is the first traditional homeowners insurance product offered by the underwriter, joining existing programs for residential Hawaii hurricane and California earthquake insurance.

“Our new ICAT Homeowners policy offers comprehensive and flexible coverage options for agents and their clients in an often underserved homeowners market, through ICAT’s leading-edge technology platform.”
The ICAT Homeowners announcement follows the recent launch of ICAT’s vacant buildings insurance solution for mid-market commercial building owners.
