Rivington Partners created a homeowners insurance program to address the coverage needs for homes in the Northeast region not properly being serviced by the admitted marketspace. While many other insurance carriers solely use analytics for blackbox underwriting, Rivington looks at each individual home to determine coverages, acceptability and pricing. For risks too complex for the admitted market, Rivington encourages creative thought process– which results in customized solutions for policyholders.
Rivington Partners is a managing general underwriter that focuses on writing specialty property and casualty insurance. We partner with experienced underwriting teams, insurance carriers and agencies while establishing distribution channels in niche, profitable markets. Rivington currently partners with several US and international insurance companies, as well as being tribalized by Lloyd’s of London.
Rivington, in conjunction with highly-rated insurance carriers, delivers superior service to brokers and clients needing effective solutions to complex risks. Our team has best-in-class underwriting and marketing expertise which gives them an un-paralleled ability to source, underwrite, and control/mitigate homeowners risks.
