Excess & Surplus Lines Insurance Wholesaler

Excess & Surplus lines (E&S) wholesalers provide access to specialty markets that insure risks standard carriers won't cover. The difficult exposures that E&S carriers specialize in can range from a mobile home or a day care center to a manufacturing company. The specialty market is always evolving, so E&S companies must maintain high levels of flexibility and stay in-the-know at all times.

An essential element of E&S insurance is the immense amount of knowledge required to understand the coverages, conditions and exclusions offered. E&S insurance specialists must be qualified to deal with higher risk exposures. These specialists, otherwise known as general agents or wholesalers, are the link between the insured, the retail insurance broker and the E&S carrier. As an insurance wholesaler, CID has the niche expertise needed to customize the right offerings for businesses working with unique exposures.
