Agency Shield ProgramTM
Your agency can further reduce your risk for E&O exposures by participating in Swiss Re’s Agency Shield Program™ (ASP™). Exclusively for Swiss Re / Westport policyholders, the ASP™ was designed with all the tools you need to reduce E&O exposure, improve client service and build sustainable, profitable processes. In addition, upon completion your agency is eligible for a 10% credit at your next insurance agency E&O renewal.
The program starts with an easy, yet comprehensive online survey about your agency’s processes and current risk exposures. After completion, Swiss Re’s ASP™ Coordinators will assess your survey and develop a detailed action plan that identifies areas of improvement in your current policies and procedures. The action plan includes a series of easy to implement steps and recommendations for reducing E&O exposure, strategies to ensure high-quality client service, and counsel on ensuring compliance.
The goal of the ASP™ is to help your agency establish a standardized process that makes your E&O procedures focused and efficient throughout your agency, ultimately leading to better productivity and increased profits.
