Commercial insurer CNA said that CNA Select Risk, which includes Excess & Surplus (E&S) business as well as Wholesale Property accounts, has expanded its Property unit.

The increased staff and broadened surplus lines at Select Risk Property will enable the unit to write a broad range of non-catastrophe (non-CAT) business and serve a wide range of occupancy classes.

In addition, the Select Risk Property team has been expanded to include more underwriters and support staff with extensive property surplus lines expertise to handle a larger range of business opportunities.

Surplus lines underwriting capabilities have been added in Chicago and Atlanta, and soon, the Northeast.

CNA Select Risk senior vice president John Angerami said that the new staff has specific expertise in E&S Property risks, which will allow this unit to write more business quickly and effectively.

“We remain dedicated to our wholesale producers, and know that our broad appetite, underwriting expertise and flexibility will make the Property unit a great partner to handle new E&S Property risks,” Angerami said.
