Kinsale Insurance Company, a specialty P&C insurance operation headquartered in Richmond, Virginia, is now eligible to write business on a surplus lines basis in all states and the District of Columbia. The Company writes a broad array of “hard-to-place” Property, Casualty, Professional and Health Care lines of business.
Michael Kehoe, CEO of Kinsale, stated, “The surplus lines business is national in scope and the company’s eligibility to write business in all states is important in being able to serve its customers. Kinsale started writing business 20 months ago with 31 state approvals. Much hard work has gone into achieving nationwide eligibility so quickly.
Kinsale’s team works hard to distinguish the company in a crowded marketplace with its E&S risk appetite, superior service and operational efficiency.
With many standard lines companies suffering financial deterioration from excessive rate cutting, catastrophe losses and low interest rates, Kinsale and the excess and surplus lines market expect to flourish in the years ahead. Nationwide eligibility certainly furthers the company’s goal of building a great E&S business.
