MRSI will offer the new product through select wholesale brokers with a focus on coverage for consultants, financial services, human resources, insurance-related and real estate professionals. Coverage is offered on an admitted and non-admitted basis and is available on a primary and excess basis.

    “Munich Re Specialty Insurance offers brokers and the market a product backed by a breadth of experience and an elite level of expertise,” said Marcia Blanco, Head of Professional Liability, Excess & Surplus Underwriting, Munich Re Specialty Insurance. “Our talented and seasoned underwriting team are based in offices located in Philadelphia, Atlanta, Chicago, and San Francisco. Our regional organization provides a customer-centric approach to business. We understand the local markets and regulations and can tailor our MPL product to fit the customer’s needs.”

    MPL claims will be handled in the Philadelphia claims home office by a dedicated in-house legal team with expertise in litigation and coverage defense in professional liability.

    “Our partners rely on us for our specialty insurance expertise,” said Blanco. “Our Miscellaneous Professional Liability product further bolsters MRSI’s offerings.” MRSI plans to launch additional lines of professional liability coverage later in 2020.
