BOSTON, April 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- To help brokers better meet the excess needs of large buyers, Liberty Mutual Insurance has released a suite of enhanced excess liability endorsements: the Following Form, including Paid Partial Loss Settlement; Business Continuity; and Crisis Management.
"We're a leading excess liability carrier and we are continuing to grow," notes Doug Manwaring, chief underwriting officer, Excess Casualty, Liberty Mutual Commercial Insurance. "To help drive this growth, in 2016 we introduced two new excess offerings – the Utility Follow Form Excess product for power generation and utility companies, and the Integrated Occurrence Form. And we created a strong excess casualty broker advisory council, which helped develop our recent offerings."
The latest offerings include:
- Following Form Endorsement including Paid Partial Loss Settlement (Shaving of Limits). Ensures the lead umbrella and excess coverages have a consistent set of terms and conditions, except for the limits, premium and added endorsements. The Shavings of Limits provision ensures excess coverage should the policyholders pay the underlying limits through a negotiated settlement, rather than the underlying insurer.
- Business Continuity Endorsement. Coming from the lessons of Hurricane Sandy, this endorsement automatically extends the policy 30 days if communications – either within the policyholder's organization, or between the policyholder, broker and Liberty Mutual – are prevented due to a catastrophic event happening within 30 days of the policy's expiration date, making it impossible to complete the renewal.
- Crisis Management Endorsement. Provides up to $250,000 to help the insured in the event of a man-made crisis. This is in addition to any crisis management expense coverage provided on layers below the excess policy.
Liberty Mutual combines deep excess expertise, exceptional service and broad appetite to help brokers meet the specific excess needs of their customers. Liberty Mutual's excess solutions are available over underlying primary policies from the Boston-based insurer, or from other carriers rated A-V or better by A.M. Best.
