Specialty Admitted Fronting
We partner with established insurance companies to support their product needs. Our partners can benefit from the breadth of our licensure, product filings, and financial rating. We will consider assuming a risk position on the business or acting as a pure front. We entertain this business in partnership with insurance companies and program business fully supported by reinsurance companies.
Falls Lake Insurance offers a diverse approach to fronting arrangements to meet your organizational needs:
Pure Financial Front: We will coordinate all Reinsurance needs and take a fronting fee.
Participatory Fronting: For certain opportunities we will syndicate in the risk sharing arrangement and participate in program structure assuming up to 20% of the program.
We treat our reinsurance partner capital as though it was our own.
