Apex is an Excess & Surplus Line—Alternative Risk Transfer method to insure non-traditional business risks, particularly those risks that are typically self-insured (or are unavailable or too costly in the commercial market), on a cash flow efficient basis.
Apex is a proven approach to alternative risk insurance underwriting. The fully integrated insurance arrangement is a composite of the benefits of alternative risk transfer, traditional P&C underwriting, and premium financing, which in turn creates a more efficient non-traditional business risk insurance model.
What is Apex?
Not your typical P&C cover.
Apex is different than traditional P&C line insurance in three important ways:
->Apex provides for a 90% return of earned premium based on underwriting experience;
->Lines of coverage provided through Apex are for typically self-insured risks or risks that are too expensive or otherwise unavailable commercially; and
-> Apex offers the ability to lower premium funding levels by financing a majority of non-traditional risk insurance premiums.
Apex is different from other Alternative Risk Transfer structures:
Since Apex returns up to 90% of earned premium and requires only a minimum cash outlay, businesses can operate more efficiently with substantially increased cash flow covering non-traditional business risk.
Here's How Apex Stands-Out:
-> No capital requirement
-> No startup, no ongoing expenses
-> Premium financing available
-> No limitation on coverage amounts
-> Only one year of coverage required
Get all the benefits.
A few benefits of the innovative Excess & Surplus (E&S) market include:
-> Standard Market Alternative: E&S carriers willing to accept coverage when the standard market declines the risk.
-> Market Acceptance of Risk: E&S carriers willing to accept unfamiliar business risks at competitive rates.
-> Anticipation of New Risks: E&S carriers develop new products, provide alternatives in the market and offer a method to secure cover for unique risk exposures.
-> Risk Pricing: E&S carriers develop premium for unique and large risks, sometimes with limited historical loss data.
->Tailored Solutions: E&S carriers offer flexibility to tailor coverages to meet the needs of policyholders within their overall risk management plan.
Over 80% of Fortune 500 firms use ART.
Some distinguishing characteristics of Alternative Risk Transfer (ART), as compared to traditional insurance or a pure insurance contract, may include, but are not limited to:
-> Earned premiums are typically retained by the premium payor.
-> Insured has the opportunity to engage in a unique, customized and individual underwriting, i.e., lines of coverage will vary depending on types of risk to which a business may be exposed.
->Insured has access to coverage for risks the conventional insurance market may consider uninsurable or too costly to insure through traditional methods.
