Business Risk Partners and Aspen Insurance to Collaborate on Insurance Agents Liability

WINDSOR, Conn.--()--Program administrator Business Risk Partners (BRP) announced today a new and significantly expanded professional liability form for insurance agents and brokers through Aspen American Insurance Company, part of Aspen Insurance Holdings Limited.

“Our partnership with the Aspen team is a logical next step. We know how talented they are from a history of first working with veteran members of the team nearly a decade ago”

BRP’s deep experience in this market segment and excellent service standards coupled with Aspen’s expertise, resources and proven claims handling ability – backed by an A.M. Best AXV rating – is a powerful combination in the insurance agents’ professional liability marketplace.

“Our partnership with the Aspen team is a logical next step. We know how talented they are from a history of first working with veteran members of the team nearly a decade ago,” said Lisa Doherty, BRP’s CEO and president.

Bruce Eisler, Aspen’s executive vice president and global head of professional & management liability, said: “We saw this opportunity with BRP as a way to extend our expertise in professional liability, claims resolution and service to insurance agents, a previously untapped market for us. After listening to what Lisa and her team required, we were able to deliver a creative and custom solution that both enhances BRP’s product offerings and our long-term partnership.”

Targeting a wide range of insurance agents and brokers – including agents for life/health, property and casualty, wholesalers, consultants and MGA/program administrators – the policy offers $10 million in capacity for primary or excess placements with no minimum revenue threshold.

As an established leader in the insurance agents’ professional liability space for more than a decade, BRP knows first-hand the exposures insurance agents face and has created a state of the art policy to fully address them.

Significant enhancements to the form include:

  • Built-in cyber extension coverage with $150,000 of limit.
  • Deductible reduction coverage, up to 50 percent on each claim.
  • Broad definition of professional services, including claims handling, risk management, third party administrator, COBRA administrator and coverage for web-based content.
  • Broadened insolvency coverage.
  • Increased coverage for administrative proceedings, subpoena inquiry and court attendance costs.

The program is currently admitted in 41 states and has been filed in all 50.
