Professional Liability/E&O Coverage

Exclusive access to our Swiss Re admitted program, formerly known as the Westport program, as well as access to almost any E&O market (both admitted and non-admitted) makes FAIA Member Services an agent’s go-to resource for professional liability insurance. Florida’s largest and established Professional and Management Liability program, FAIA Member Services is focused on helping member agents get the coverage they need at a competitive price. 

The Swiss Re program has a proven claims-paying track record, is a fierce advocate for claims handling and coverage interpretation, and offers the kind of outstanding service that comes with FAIA membership and more than 50 years of experience in the agency E&O space. Agencies insured by our Swiss Re admitted program can count on superb customer service should they need to file a claim.

Through our IIABA endorsed brokerage firm, FMS has also established relationships with several admitted and non-admitted carriers to serve members who may be ineligible for placement in our Swiss Re admitted program or want to look at additional options outside of our Swiss Re admitted program.

Swiss Re Admitted Program

FAIA Member Services' Swiss Re Admitted Professional Liability program was developed by agents for agents, and is tailored to provide the broadest protection available. Built on a modular design, a standard set of terms and conditions forms the basic E&O policy, to which agents add multiple coverages for their diverse operations and exposures. The various units are combined into a single policy, providing seamless coverage for many exposures, including contractual liability and mutual funds sales.

Program highlights include:

  • Defense costs in addition to the limit of liability.
  • Deductible Reduction features:  three options available for the agency to have the potential to waive or reduce their deductible up to a maximum of $25,000.
  • $20 million limit capacity available.
  • Insolvency coverage for placement with admitted carriers backed by the guarantee fund and non-admitted carriers rated B or better by A.M. Best. Coverage for all approved, non-admitted carriers available via endorsement.
  • Catastrophe Extra Expense coverage:  $25,000 per occurrence/$50,000 aggregate (increased limit options available via endorsement up to $100,000/$250,000).
