Carriers and MGAs Modernize Excess & Surplus Lines with ClarionDoor

Believe it or not, there used to be a time where “standard” insurance never existed. In the early years, and according to today’s criteria, every risk would have been classified as Excess and Surplus (E&S). Today, E&S lines continue to play an important role in the insurance market.

E&S insurance has boasted record growth in the last couple of years, setting a new record of $55 billion in written premium. Needless to say, the E&S market is booming, and much can be attributed to the flexible nature of the E&S market.

For some in the industry, E&S lines are considered a dumping ground for risks that admitted carriers do not want or cannot write. However, for most, E&S represents a testing ground and launch pad for new, emerging, and unexpected long-term risks. It is the latter that is attributing to this surge in the E&S market.

This uptick in the market is great; however, it also creates challenges for E&S insurers that are similar with standard lines, and that is technology.

As demand increases for more E&S coverage, insurers need technology solutions that provide the same level of efficiencies as standard lines. As a result, many insurers in the industry turn to ClarionDoor’s Digital Distribution Suite for rating, quoting, and policy issuance. As a matter of fact, several of the top 25 E&S carriers are leveraging ClarionDoor solutions today.

Entertainment Risk, a program administrator and industry market leader in the hospitality and nightlife industry, are leveraging ClarionDoor’s API-first, cloud-native product distribution software to handle their rating, quoting, and policy issuance for their product portfolio.

“ClarionDoor’s modern, cloud-based solutions have made us more efficient and enabled us to focus more on the business and our customers.”

Hallmark Financial Services, a diversified specialty property/casualty insurer, are leveraging ClarionDoor’s modern rating and quoting technologies to support their general liability, commercial property, and inland marine lines for Hallmark’s E&S contract binding operating unit.

“The platform allows Hallmark to have more control over the rating, underwriting, and reporting process for our commercial lines products.”
