Learn more about how Insurate is partnering with global carriers and reinsurers to reimagine workers' comp for high-hazard industries. Insurate just launched as a Managing General Agent (MGA). Backed by SiriusPoint and other industry leaders, we are proud to begin offering workers' comp across Georgia, Illinois and Missouri, with more states regularly coming on board.
We started Insurate to fix what’s broken in workers’ comp, and today marks a vital step toward that goal. Everyone involved in–and covered by–workers’ comp insurance should expect more. Insurate is setting a higher standard by putting people first, analyzing more data and emphasizing transparency and convenience. We are excited to show agents, employers and workers the Insurate difference.
Transforming workers' comp insurance is a major undertaking, but we're not doing it alone. Read our joint press release with SiriusPoint on our MGA launch:
HAMILTON, Bermuda. September 21, 2022 -- SiriusPoint Ltd. (“SiriusPoint” or the “Company”) (NYSE: SPNT), a global specialty insurer and reinsurer, and Insurate Inc, a newly launched Managing General Agent (MGA) specializing in workers’ compensation insurance, have announced a strategic partnership.
Insurate is focused on small and mid-sized US industrial businesses with an established culture of safety. The start-up uses analytics and data science to offer more affordable workers’ compensation premiums to safer-than-average companies operating in medium to high-hazard industries such as manufacturing, transportation, energy and construction.
Insurate provides more accurate insights into a company’s risk profile by complementing standard underwriting tools and processes with additional granular safety and operational data not currently used in the evaluation of industrial risk. The start-up’s proprietary Safe-Tier algorithm identifies a company’s underlying risk profile and rewards companies evidencing a strong safety culture with more attractive insurance costs.
SiriusPoint will provide capacity and collaborate with Insurate in underwriting and developing insurance products in the workers’ compensation medium to high-hazard space.
“Insurate’s data driven approach to highly specialized workers’ compensation, its experienced management team, and market-leading underwriting make this partnership an excellent fit for SiriusPoint,” said Patrick Charles, Global Head of Property and Casualty Insurance Services, at SiriusPoint. “We see great potential to better support high quality companies in a misunderstood and underserved portion of the workers’ compensation insurance space through this partnership. Given the significant fragmentation in the medium to high hazard workers’ compensation landscape, we believe that Insurate has the product, team and value proposition to be a market leader in this sector. We look forward to working with them.”
“We are thrilled to be working with SiriusPoint,” said Joe McILhon, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Insurate. “The Company’s underwriting and MGA incubation expertise will allow us to capitalize on our data-driven business model to deliver superior workers’ comp cover to our clients. With backing from SiriusPoint, we are executing on our mission to reinvent workers’ comp as we know it.”
McILhon is a Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) and has been a licensed Property/Casualty and Life/Health agent and consultant for nearly two decades. Fellow founder and President Scott Weller has 25 years’ experience in executive management and start-up leadership roles, including corporate development, sales, marketing and general operations, and he was President of intellectual property licensing firm Radian Labs before joining Insurate. The third founder, Chief Financial Officer Hossein Mousavi, has almost 30 years’ experience of leading successful projects from start to completion. Prior to joining Insurate, he was Managing Partner of an aerospace investment firm and CEO of leading US telecommunications company Cequint.
