QBE North America has formed a strategic programme alliance with AmWINS Special Risk Underwriters (SRU) – one of the largest independent wholesalers in the U.S. – to launch a national excess property programme.
The excess property programme offers cover for both soft occupancy; habitational, hospitality, retail, and manufacturing – areas where QBE is a market leader.
Glenn Skrynecki, Senior Vice President, P&C Programs for QBE, said; “QBE is excited to partner with such an experienced property MGA. This business will be a valuable addition to our current book and we look forward to fostering this relationship for many years to come.”
“We were looking to partner with a carrier that will help us achieve our long-term goals in this space. QBE brings the specialized expertise to help us meet the needs of our customers,” added Katie Davies, President of AmWINS Special Risk Underwriting.
QBE North America is an operating division of global insurer QBE Insurance Group Limited; AmWINS SRU was formed as an exclusive MGA for AmWINS property brokers – its main focus has been on the middle market segment of the E&S property business, providing exclusive products through AmWINS property brokers.
