Swiss Re's commercial insurance, in partnership with Bisys Specialty Programs, has launched a new insurance program for auto dealers.

Backed by the financial strength of Swiss Re and the industry expertise of Bisys, a division of Crump Insurance Services, the program offers quality coverage and security for auto dealers who meet underwriting guidelines.

The program provides specialty underwriting for a full complement of insurance coverage for auto dealers. It entertains risks for franchised or non-franchised retail auto dealers, auto auctions, wholesale dealers, including those with service garages and body shops. Coverage includes commercial auto liability, physical damage, garage liability, garage keepers, dealers open lot, inland marine, crime and property.

Brian Evans, leader of programs business for Swiss Re’s commercial insurance, said: Swiss Re has insured auto dealers for years and Bisys was a natural choice for re-launching our dealer facility. Auto dealers will benefit from policies underwritten by Swiss Re companies and backed by Swiss Re’s financial strength.
