Trident Marine Managers, Nationwide E&S enter underwriting agreement

Trident Marine Managers has entered a new delegated authority underwriting agreement with Nationwide E&S, to offer recreational marine and marine equipment insurance solutions, as well as workers’ compensation.

Trident is a managing general underwriter subsidiary of RSG Underwriting Managers (RSGUM), which specializes in marine insurance.

Under the partnership, Trident’s Nationwide E&S recreational marine and marine insurance solutions will be made available in all US states.

“We are delighted to continue expanding our relationship with Nationwide E&S to develop additional capabilities to service our retail agent clients and insureds,” said RSGUM marine vertical head Jorge Pecci.

“The extensive experience of [directors of underwriting] Jeana Ramos, Clarke Smith and [marine SVP] John Michel in their respective marine niches will help our clients and Trident’s profitably  expand in the growing recreational marine and marine equipment markets,” commented Trident Marine Managers managing director Martin Hayes.

“With the strong trading partnership Nationwide E&S has with RSGUM, Nationwide is very excited to expand the relationship with Trident Marine Managers and their outstanding underwriters,” added Nationwide VP of brokerage Heather Schenker.
