Avon, Conn.-based Target Capital Partners Inc., a managing general agency and provider of specialty insurance programs, and Southeast Underwriting Group Inc., a specialty agency and underwriting manager headquartered in Deerfield Beach, Florida, reached an agreement for Target Capital to purchase Southeast Underwriting Group’s corporate assets.

The assets consist primarily of errors and omissions (E&O) liability insurance programs for insurance agents, title agents, chiropractors, and podiatrists written through several different facilities. The underwriting carriers include Gulf Insurance Group, Westport Insurance Corp., American Alliance Insurance Company, Hudson Insurance Company, Lloyd’s of London, and others. All existing program agreements between Southeast Underwriting Group and the underwriting carriers will be assigned to Target Capital.
