 What is an Excess and Surplus Market?

The Excess and Surplus Lines industry provides a market for insurance covering hard-to-place, unusual and high risks not typically written by the standard markets.

 

 

Products and services are provided through various surplus lines insurance company subsidiaries of W. R. Berkley Corporation and offered through licensed surplus lines brokers. Not all products and services may be available in all jurisdictions, and the coverage provided by any insurer is subject to the actual terms and conditions of the policies issued. Surplus lines insurance carriers do not generally participate in state guaranty funds and insureds are therefore not protected by such funds. ZES Insurance Agency, LLC conducts business in California as a licensed surplus lines broker (License #0H99364).
