New Umbrella Product Available To Community Associations, Through Ian H. Graham Insurance
CHICAGO, November 8, 2016 – Insurance agents and brokers now have access to a new umbrella product for their community association clients. Ian H. Graham Insurance (IHG), a division of Aon Affinity, the affinity business of Aon plc (NYSE: AON), has expanded its exclusive suite of products with CNA, to include umbrella insurance for community associations, in addition to directors’ and officers’ (D&O) liability and crime insurance.
“IHG is proud to introduce our new umbrella product, which complements our industry leading D&O,” said Sylvia Tagle, executive vice president, Ian H. Graham. “The addition of this new coverage responds to our broker and client needs by offering a one-stop insurance solution for these specialty products.”
IHG will have internal underwriting capability, which permits the program to offer the same service standards and ease of doing business experienced by brokers and clients with other IHG products. Key features of the umbrella product (subject to all terms, conditions and provisions of the Policy) include:
- Coverage provided by A-rated carrier, CNA
- $1M, $2M, $5M, $10M and higher limits available
- Follow form excess over CNA’s D&O Liability
- Duty to defend policy
- And more
Service standards include 24-hour turnaround for new business quotes, automatic renewals (for qualifying accounts) and easy access to product experts who can answer any questions clients may have.
“CNA is pleased to collaborate with IHG and expand our product offering in the community association market,” said Michael Kirchgessner, Vice President, Umbrella & Excess, CNA. “This new umbrella product provides a customized and seamless approach to umbrella coverage for our customers needing more than just a primary policy.”
Since 1982, IHG has been providing comprehensive insurance solutions to the community association niche through more than 5,000 brokers and agents. It has been a sponsored program of the Community Association Institute (CAI) for over 30 years.
