News Rates – April 18, 2014

Yesterday was one of those days when everything happened all at once. Whew! Today we have 5 filings, one of which is a decrease. Notably the Munich group has introduced territorial rating across its ‘American group’ fleet. We are unable to determine this early how much effect it will have on its overall written premium. Territories with higher rates are as you’d expect.
We are beginning to see more deal flow into PEOs according to the (multiple) brokers I have been chatting with. Most brokers are finding them strange and unusual to deal with and tell me they do not plat=y by the same rules as the regular insurance marketplace in terms of common practices such as brokers letters, wholesale relationships and other things. Let me know your experience, by dropping a line to Helpdesk@Compline.com or even call me. Don’t be afraid – I only bite liberals and SCIF management.
Here’s the usual self serving plug: All of the new rates and territories are up and running in Compline Integrated Rating. Try it out.
