E&S Wholesale Brokerage - Liability Solutions 

Skyward Specialty is a team of experienced underwriters who are capable of underwriting all types of exposures. We focus on providing answers for your non-standard accounts across a wide range of classes and coverages. We won’t give you a standard market answer on accounts with a low exposure to frequency and a moderate exposure to severity. We offer thoughtful solutions combining price and coverage, positioning our wholesale partners to sell the account. In addition to the wholesale brokerage E&S business, many of our Industry Specialty areas also write on an E&S basis.

A century of solving challenges

Structuring coverage for challenging risks is our specialty, with decades of experience focused on helping wholesale brokers cover their insureds. We believe in limiting information requests to questions pertinent to determining the acceptability of the account. We will provide indications, including pricing and relevant terms, to enhance your response time and manage your retailer’s expectations.

Work with us and you’ll be equipped to move faster, turn more submissions, pursue more business in more industry segments, while providing a thoughtful combination of price and coverage.

A winning relationship

It takes fast service and flexible coverage to win in the E&S market. Skyward Specialty is right there with you. From hotels, restaurants, and bars to contractors, manufacturers, and distributors, we can customize a solution for the exposures. Our expert underwriters know standard market responses don’t work on E&S accounts. 

Every carrier claims to value their partners but the innovative and niche-oriented Skyward Specialty has shown over years that they mean it. I feel I have a direct impact on the hospitality program management at Skyward Specialty and that they value my input. That’s worth a lot. We’ve been fortunate to have Skyward Specialty as a hospitality partner during COVID and our underwriter is professional, responsive and always goes the extra mile for us.
