TEXAS – 11/16/2016 (PRESS RELEASE JET) — Velocity Risk Underwriters has announced an expansion into Texas, writing coastal wind-only homeowners insurance policies for customers that may otherwise be insured in the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association (TWIA).
Velocity is unique in that it offers one of the few A.M. Best “A” rated homeowners programs in Texas and the only A.M. Best “A” rated product to existing TWIA customers. The company utilizes Texas-based State National Insurance Company. The timing for the launch is fortuitous, as agents and customers are facing a decision whether to remain with TWIA or allow their policy to be renewed with a TWIA-designated assumption carrier.
“We’re proud to bring the people of Texas security and peace of mind, and look forward to a long-term opportunity in the Texas insurance marketplace. With additional homeowners, rental, and secondary home products coming out early next year from Velocity, we could not be more excited about what lies ahead for agents, and customers of coastal Texas,” said Phil Bowie, CEO of Velocity.
Velocity currently insures coastal homeowners customers in the states of Connecticut and Florida, and writes commercial lines products in all 50 states. Velocity writes through independent agents and is currently contracting new partners in Texas.
