Digitally-enabled Executive Risks products help protect businesses from fast-moving risks; make customizing management liability coverage easier and quicker for brokers
San Francisco, CA (Jan. 31, 2023) — Coalition, the world’s first Active Insurance provider designed to prevent digital risk before it strikes, is pleased to announce the addition of Crime and Fiduciary Liability Insurance coverage, provided through a collaboration with Zurich American Insurance Company to protect small businesses. Adding Crime and Fiduciary Liability to Coalition’s Executive Risks product lines makes it easier than ever for brokers to quote and bind via Coalition’s streamlined digital application process, all for protection from a wider range of risks.
“Today’s crime and fiduciary liability threats are digital, fast-moving, and potentially devastating for any business. Like cyber incidents, these risks can be triggered by internal or external threats, including theft, negligence, and human error,” said Patrick Mitchell, Coalition’s Head of Executive Risks. “With Coalition’s Active Insurance approach, brokers can take proactive steps to help small businesses identify and mitigate risks related to losses tied to fiduciary liability and crime exposures.”
Coalition’s Executive Risks products, including its existing Directors & Officers Liability (D&O) Insurance and Employment Practice Liability (EPL) coverage, make it easier than ever for brokers to customize products. Coalition provides brokers with a risk assessment alongside every quote to facilitate risk management conversations with every client. The company’s flexible approach allows brokers to customize coverages to address specific crime and fiduciary liability risks—in addition to the policy limits and retentions.
“Coalition’s industry-leading turnaround time for generating quotes is one of the principal reasons for our high success rate binding new business,” continued Mitchell. “Our risk engineers are incredibly responsive and focused on extending our mission to protect the unprotected. I am thrilled with our progress and efforts to continue growing Coalition’s Executive Risks offering.”
Coalition’s new Crime Insurance is designed to help protect organizations from criminal activity – both externally (via third parties) and internally (via their own employees). Even as cybercriminals and their tactics become more complex, most cyber and cybercrime attacks are still executed via social engineering.
Negligence and mismanagement of benefits plans can lead to fiduciary liability claims. Coalition’s new Fiduciary Liability Insurance helps businesses manage their risks related to their employee benefits plans. New policies may include excessive fee coverage, settlor coverage, and a comprehensive list of covered civil penalties.
