Sovereign Insurance announces new and enhanced manufacturing coverages

Toronto, ON (Oct. 4, 2018) – The Sovereign General Insurance Company (Sovereign Insurance) is launching new and enhanced coverage features for its manufacturing solutions as it continues to refine its industry-based approach to product management. These coverages will be available for renewals and new business starting December 1, 2018.

“With the commercial insurance industry changing so quickly, it was crucial for Sovereign to focus more on the needs of the Canadian businesses we serve,” said Steve Phillips, Chief Operating Officer, Sovereign. “This customer-centric shift is subtle but powerful and really moves the conversation from what do we sell to what does a company within this industry need?”

Sovereign has a broadly defined appetite for mid-large manufacturing classes within the 24 sub-industries in the manufacturing space.

“We will continue to risk select within target classes as we look for opportunities where we can add value and be competitive.” Phillips added. “A focused appetite that is built around a selected set of clients is how we will compete.”
