RLI, Gridiron Form Excess Liability Binding Authority Partnership

November 4, 2019

RLI has formed a partnership with Gridiron Insurance Underwriters to offer RLI’s excess liability binding authority insurance through Easy Excess, Gridiron’s dedicated online wholesale excess liability portal.

The Easy Excess platform allows appointed producers to quote, bind and issue excess liability policies designed for small commercial businesses in real time. Easy Excess liability coverage is available to 400 business classes and can be attached over general liability, liquor, auto and employer liability. Policies will be underwritten by Mt. Hawley Insurance, a surplus lines subsidiary of RLI Insurance Company that is A+ rated by A.M. Best. Easy Excess replaces Mt. Hawley’s existing eXS product.

According to Dennis Drees, RLI vice president, Casualty Brokerage, the partnership will give customers the same coverage and service they have from RLI with Gridiron’s technology.

Coverage is available on a non-admitted basis in all states, except New York.

RLI Corp. is a specialty insurer serving niche property, casualty and surety markets.

Gridiron Insurance Underwriters is a nationwide program manager, specializing in niche and custom program solutions.
