Coverage of the Cover Holders and Risk Takers-Exchange Conferences
Scott Addis, CEO, Beyond Insurance, said agents and brokers must move beyond bidding for business and focus on consulting with insureds and diagnosing their risk needs.
Brokers and underwriters at the CHART-Exchange conference in Baltimore court one another with the goal of placing coverages--including some that traditionally have remained within North American markets--with the London Market.
Robert Hilb, CEO, Hilb Group, said the London market formerly was dominated by large brokers and companies but is growing more hospitable to smaller specialized placements.
Glenn Clark, president, Rockwood Programs, and founder, CHART-Exchange, said meaningful insurance agency growth comes from new risk products and programs, not simply from agencies buying one another.
Duncan Dale, CEO, Dale Underwriting Partners, said his syndicate, which started three years ago, has broadened its operations and is actively penetrating the broker market.
