Redefining Management Liability Underwriting with Copilot

Copilot brings the same beloved underwriting experience to additional risk types, so even more underwriters can Bind with Confidence.

We have exciting news - we are thrilled to announce support for Management Liability Insurance within our Copilot underwriting workbench. By continually expanding the risks we support, we advance our mission of helping every underwriter Bind with Confidence.

Management liability is a vital new pillar of Copilot’s offering, joining an existing arsenal that’s delivered record improvements across the commercial space. Copilot already had an established track record, supporting leading insurers in excess and surplus lines, primary casualty, property, and commercial auto risks. 

After launching our fleet offering last summer, we set right to work on a solution to support management liability for our existing customers. Several months of beta testing later, we are excited to make the news public and bring additional insurers into the fold.

Why Management Liability?

It’s an interesting time in the management liability space. 

After years of rapidly escalating rates, the market has finally begun to soften. However, changing market dynamics and global financial slowdowns have brought other concerns into play. 

While new insurers have entered the marketplace in the past two years, IPOs and SPACs have slowed to a crawl, hamstringing the growth of public company business. As a result, insurers are increasingly relying on great customer service and pricing to win the new business that does exist, and retaining existing business has become paramount. With a financial downturn possibly on the horizon, insolvencies, layoffs, and bankruptcies may be on the rise, leading to an uptick in D&O claims.

Meanwhile, management liability underwriters are facing many of the same challenges encountered in other lines of business. Quote rates, response times, and underwriting quality suffer under the weight of time spent on admin tasks  -  40% of underwriters’ time, according to Accenture. At the same time, managing submissions out of an email inbox or a clunky, outdated system slows down quoting, hampers response rates, and damages relationships with distribution partners. In addition, underwriters’ constant struggle to find crucial information - including company financials, OSHA violations, news of criminal activity, and digestible loss histories -leads to mispriced risks and poor underwriting.

That’s where we come in.
