Anyone know what the best way to get some quotes for an individual actuarial PL policy? Asking for me.
i don’t other than google.
do you personally know any of the private/small practice actuaries out there that you could ask?
I don’t, and when I previously searched years ago it was somewhat hard to find.
When I started working for a guy that was previously a solo practitioner, his strategy was to put most of the big family assets in his wife’s name.
I only know from the UK (its also required if you are a contractor).
Don’t you have professional sites that look at this type of insurance for you in the US?
Have you tried enquiring from the Conference of Consulting Actuaries? They are my first go to on issues regarding consulting practice.
I suggest using your contacts at some of the actuarial consulting firms and see what carriers they use. I assume a carrier that writes this coverage for a firm would also consider writing it on an individual.
Another possibility is using your contacts at the largest insurance brokerages.
If you are considering becoming a solo practitioner, and if I were an underwriter of this coverage, one question I would ask is “who will be peer-reviewing your work?”
I just went to a local agent. $5M individual and $20M E&O IIRC.
T-roy, out of curiosity - who is the carrier and what is the premium? And what is the rating base - estimated receipts?
