Excess and Surplus Market

The Excess and Surplus Lines industry provides a market for insurance coverage for hard-to-place, unusual, and high risks not typically written by the standard insurance markets. This enables businesses and consumers to get insurance they can’t get with the standard market. Because regulations and laws limit the ability to market directly to consumers, Surplus Lines insurance is sold through licensed Surplus Lines producers. While Surplus Lines insurers are subject to regulation, they cannot participate in state insurance guaranty funds.
