Working with Shepherd

The new business proposal was received by Shepherd, and our team expressed immediate interest in the account. Within 7 hours of receiving the submission, we sent our initial indication. As the broker team was building out the tower, we promptly quoted multiple layer options and were flexible to participate in a quota share option. We provided our final proposal within 1 business day of receiving the underlying and secured our placement.

Why We Won

Shepherd was presented with this opportunity after a prior successful partnership with the same broker team. Initially, Shepherd focused on a lower excess layer, which gave the broker options in several tower configurations. Our promptness and thoroughness in handling this account were crucial in securing this win.
