Within this segment, the company provides a range of specialty liability products, with a particular emphasis on coverages for healthcare and professional liability risks. Additionally, it offers a selection of direct general casualty insurance and general property insurance products. The company’s Bermuda operations underwrite primarily larger, Fortune 1000 casualty and property risks for accounts domiciled in North America, while its operations in the U.S. and Canada generally write small- and middle-market, non-Fortune 1000 accounts domiciled in North America, including public entities, private companies, and non-profit organizations. The company’s underwriters are spread among its locations in the United States, Bermuda, and Canada.
