CRM Holdings, a provider of products and services for the workers’ compensation insurance industry, said that its primary insurance subsidiary, Majestic Insurance Company has entered into a quota share agreement with certain subsidiaries of AmTrust Financial Services, a multinational specialty property and casualty insurance company.

Under the agreement, Majestic will arrange for selected workers’ compensation insurance policies to be underwritten by the AmTrust group companies and reinsured by Majestic under a 90% quota reinsurance agreement.

Majestic will perform various management services for the covered business, including marketing, underwriting, issuance of policies, loss control, and claims handling. The agreement limits the amount of covered business to $40m in any calendar year.

James Scardino, CEO of CRM, said: “We are extremely pleased to have begun this relationship with AmTrust Financial. This will allow Majestic the flexibility to offer insurance through AmTrust in the western states to our brokers and clients that require A-minus rated coverage.

“At the same time, Majestic will manage those policies and provide the exceptional loss control services and claims management that brokers and clients expect from Majestic. We are optimistic that AmTrust’s excellent reputation will allow us to expand our primary insurance segment in the covered states and we look forward to exploring other opportunities with them.”
