In addition, employment practices coverage is included for most policies. Primary and excess limits are available up to $5 million on eligible accounts.

According to Clay Rhoades, Kinsale vice president, educational institution liability coverage is the second product introduced through Kinsale’s new Public Entity Division. Additional products will continue to be added as the division expands in the future.
