Technical Risk Underwriters Announces Partnership with RLI Insurance Company

November 19, 2014, AUSTIN, TX – Technical Risk Underwriters (TRU), a division of RSG Underwriting Managers, LLC, has announced an underwriting partnership with RLI Insurance Company. This partnership marries TRU’s well-respected and rapidly expanding Course of Construction (“Builders Risk”) underwriting capabilities with RLI’s highly-rated capacity and proven expertise in catastrophe management.

Targeted classes include the entire span of U.S. construction including multi-family residential, commercial/mixed-use, hospitals, infrastructure and heavy civil works. Coverage will be written by RLI’s non-admitted surplus lines insurer, Mt. Hawley Insurance Company. The addition of the RLI catastrophe capacity further entrenches TRU as the leader in providing these coverages to the Builders Risk marketplace.

TRU’s President and CEO, Michael J. Pilla, says of the RLI partnership, “We are extremely pleased to announce this important partnership with one of the flagship insurance providers here in the U.S. It represents an important step toward our goal of enhancing our underwriting capabilities and providing to our clients capacity that goes well beyond that available from traditional providers.
