How Strong Is Florida’s ‘Revived’ Homeowners Market? How will this affect Fort Lauderdale and all of S. Florida?

September 12, 2014 in General

As Florida seeks to revive its private home insurance market after almost a decade without a hurricane, homeowners are pouring $6 billion a year in premiums into a new generation of small, in-state insurance companies with an unproven record of withstanding a major hurricane.

A consumer-oriented rating agency, Weiss Ratings, recently awarded the companies a median grade of C-minus, and even without a major storm to drive up claims, 11 of them have already failed in Florida since 2006, according to state records.

“This is an accident waiting to happen,” said Gavin Magor, senior financial analyst with Weiss, a national agency with a reputation for tough ratings based in Jupiter, Florida.

Expansion of Private Market Flood continues and accelerates in advance of soon to come FEMA rate increases on non-primary and commercial properties.

September 11, 2014 in General

“Shortly after the 1st of the New Year FEMA is widely anticipated to increase flood insurance premiums a whopping 25% and add an additional $250 surcharge for non-primary residences and commercial properties”, says Evan Hecht, coverholder for the Lloyd’s of London Private Market Flood program.

 

“Private Market Flood targets older pre-FIRM properties with premiums lower than FEMA and is especially competitive on non-primary residences and commercial properties even before the impending FEMA rate increases, at which time, the premium discrepancy will become even greater.” This is very good news for property owners in the 26 States Private Market Flood now offers policies and the 10 additional states Hecht says will be added before October 1st.

On Market Misery

The cost of catastrophe events in 2014 would have to be massive to harden the market

We are a pessimistic lot by nature but the mood in the insurance market as full trading resumes this week is more gloomy than usual for this time of year. Reinsurers were battered on price and treaty conditions during the recent renewal season; the patchy rally in some US commercial rates has come to an abrupt halt; and premium levels in almost every other geography and product line continue their journey south. Already many companies and syndicates will be worried about not achieving business plan levels of growth and profitability in 2014.

When should you compare the market for new commercial insurance?

October 5, 2013 in General

You should expect your insurance broker to compare different insurance companies for better insurance rates at least every three years as standard.

Your broker may be reluctant to submit business insurance enquiries more frequently. They fear that underwriters will get sluggish seeing the same insurance applications too regularly without writing any new business.

There are though of course times when it is a good idea to shop around.
