We consistently provide brokers and their clients with the highest caliber of environmental insurance, loss prevention services and claims handling, and have become the industry standard to beat.”
”As one of the long standing providers of environmental insurance, XL Insurance’s experience and longevity continues to garner extremely high customer retention rates,” said Mr. Corbett. “It is also this experience and environmental underwriting knowledge that allows us to confidently offer expanded coverage to address our clients’ most complex environmental exposures.”
The coverage will be underwritten by XL Insurance companies Greenwich Insurance Company and Indian Harbor Insurance Company.
