Specialty: Public Entities
Brian Frost began his insurance career at CV Starr & Co., where he learned the form and coverage aspects of blended special excess liability policies. From there, Frost moved into the wholesale space with MTS, a niche wholesale player in the public entity arena that was later acquired by AmWINS Group. As his career progressed, Frost’s specialization in public entities continued to evolve.
“The PE marketplace is a relatively finite grouping of risk-bearing entities, each with distinct and particular appetites and capabilities,” he says. “We endeavor to align risk profiles with carrier preferences to build stable towers. In non-tortprotected jurisdictions/states, the claim severity potentials have restricted long stretch capacity deployment, so we are regularly in the marketplace, building full towers of coverage to the limit needs of our clients. As we deal with typically non- ISO-based policy forms or reinsurance of tailored memorandums of coverage, there is a particular focus and importance of coverage concurrency, form review and technical oversight.”
