Hamilton Select Insurance Inc.’s Excess Casualty division targets small to midsized hard-to-place and distressed accounts in the excess and surplus (E&S) space.

We write supported or unsupported excess over General Liability, Employers’ Liability, Automobile Liability, Liquor Liability, incidental Foreign Liability, OCPs and more.

Accounts falling into the hard-to-place and distressed space typically include accounts with losses, challenging classes, difficult venues or non-renewals. Our underwriters provide a solution that can be tailored to meet the needs of the risk.
