WildCat Brush and CatRisk Wind Facilities Pick Up the Slack

DALLAS, May 7, 2019MarketScout today announced that, as two major high net worth homeowners insurers choose to either exit or curb their writings, its new brush and wind facilities are structured to assist agents seeking to replace non renewed accounts.

MarketScout’s CatRisk underwriting facility is designed to focus on wind exposed homeowners in Florida and the Eastern Seaboard.

The WildCat facility, also underwritten by MarketScout, utilizes unique big data sets, which help with risk selection. This facility focuses on insuring brush-exposed properties in California and other Western states.

“We expected an admitted market capacity crunch would eventually arise in both Florida and California,” said Richard Kerr, CEO of MarketScout. “Three years ago we began building our capacity and employing top-notch high net worth underwriters and managing executives. We are fully staffed with experienced underwriters and ample capacity. We stand ready to offer terms for brush in California and wind in Florida.”
