Primary Job Duties & Responsibilities

What is an Underwriter? Insurance is the contractual transfer of financial risk from one party to another.

Underwriters (Account Executives) are the heart of the insurance process, gathering and researching pertinent information and then using finely tuned analytical skills to evaluate the acceptability of business and institutional risk. However, underwriters are more than just analysts - they are the core relationship builders with our agents and clients. They are responsible for managing a profitable portfolio of business through our distributing agents and brokers.

An underwriting career includes a dynamic blend of analytical and marketing skills - it's challenging, stimulating and a superb career choice.

Perform other duties as assigned.
