Market Overview

A.M. Best to Host Webinar on Today's Surplus Lines Market


A panel of industry leaders in the surplus lines sector of the U.S.
insurance market will review the market and highlights of a new report
on that sector. The report updates the relative positions of carriers in
the market and examines regulatory developments, distribution, solvency,
availability and coverage. The surplus lines and specialty markets
provide coverage for risks that the standard insurance market is
unwilling or unable to insure. Every year, the WSIA Education Foundation
provides a grant to A.M. Best to produce a detailed report on the
excess and surplus lines insurance sector. This complimentary webinar,
cosponsored by the WSIA Education Foundation and Lexington Insurance
Company, will be on Wednesday, September 19, 2018, at 2 p.m. (EDT).
