Industry Group Programs

Typically homogeneous business within a specific niche or industry group managed, processed, and distributed by a specialized Program Administrator.

Affinity Groups

P&C products delivered as part of an industry association. May be sponsored in part or whole by the association as a benefit of membership.

Parameters and Preferences

Program parameters

The PAs and MGAs that we work with have full program administrative capabilities, including underwriting, rating, policy issuance, and reporting.

We utilize TPAs for claims administration with oversight and management by AXIS Insurance’s Claims Department. We can offer profit sharing, variable commission, and captive support, whichever is the best solution that aligns with both parties’ interests. We don’t have a minimum premium size to establish a relationship. It depends on the costs associated with launching and maintaining the program.

Program preferences

Sufficient in-force gross written premium to support development costs and ongoing expenses.

At least 5 years of verifiable premium and loss history.

A focus on a niche market or specialty product line.

Business that can be written and priced using well-defined underwriting template.
