Professional Underwriting Group, Inc. Provides Insolvency Carve Back for Producers of Demotech Rated Carriers

Columbus, Ohio, February 22, 2012:  Professional Underwriting Group, Inc. (PUG) and Demotech, Inc. are pleased to announce that insurers earning a Financial Stability Rating® (FSR) of A or better from Demotech are eligible for reasonably priced, comprehensive insurance agents & brokers professional liability insurance (E&O) that includes coverage for insolvency to the producer when the market is rated A or better by Demotech, Inc.  According to Jay Martin, President, PUG, with a carve back available for carriers rated A or better by Demotech, agents or brokers are no longer held hostage by arbitrary provisions in their current E&O carrier’s policy.

According to Demotech’s President, Joseph Petrelli, although this carve back of E&O coverage is based upon Demotech’s exceptional record identifying carriers that possess the ability to sustain long-term financial stability, the carve back is also recognition that the independent agency system needs and deserves unfettered access to financially stable markets that can assist the producers’ clients.

Petrelli says “In a competitive marketplace, with consumers focused on obtaining value from their purchases of insurance, producers deserve the support of their E&O carrier, not another hurdle to overcome.  Jay Martin, Professional Underwriting Group, Inc. and their preferred E & O admitted market recognize this and, after reviewing our track record, have responded with a carve back for the producers licensed by the fine carriers rated A or better by Demotech.”
