There is a lot going on at Seneca Insurance. We are constantly looking for new opportunities and ways to add value to our customers and producers.


Underwriting Approach

We have experienced and thoughtful underwriting and claims teams – which allow us to take a creative approach to providing insurance solutions:

  • We prefer lines of business that require underwriting and claims expertise – and that are normally avoided by the main street insurance companies.
  • We will consider insuring a wide range of business classes – assuming that we can understand the business, underwrite the risk and handle the claims – and have confidence that we can make an underwriting profit.
  • We are flexible with respect to size of account, production source, admitted or non-admitted paper, billing options and the ability to use manuscript terms.
  • We are conservative with respect to catastrophe risk. Although we do write catastrophe prone businesses, we carefully monitor and limit our aggregate exposures.
  • We believe that we do a more thorough job of underwriting, claims adjusting and loss control than our competitors on the business for which we compete. As a result, we can use more underwriting judgment on difficult accounts to find a way to profitably underwrite them.

Our consistency in underwriting approach – and in our performance – gives our customers and producers long term confidence.

New Opportunities

We hope this provides a good description of Seneca Insurance, and certainly welcome future business opportunities. If you are an underwriter or a producer with a business plan – or a good idea – and want to develop it into a business, feel free to contact any of us.
