US property

From our earliest days the US has been an important territory for Tokio Marine Kiln’s international operations. More than 50 years later, the country remains an integral component of a business with a truly global reach. We operate within the US as an excess and surplus lines insurer, offering a wide range of coverages.

Natural catastrophes remain a constant threat to homes and businesses throughout the country. The value of property exposed to catastrophic events continues to increase and the potential economic impact of such occurrences is higher than ever before. Tokio Marine Kiln’s decades of experience in insuring against such eventualities enables us to work with our clients to mitigate this risk and protect their assets.

Tokio Marine Kiln’s underwriting teams are specialists in both delegated authorities and direct and facultative placements. We operate as a lead market across the territories and classes that we write and are highly experienced in both the design and implementation of new binding authorities and the appropriate structure of open market programmes.

The delegated authority team travel frequently throughout the US to better understand the needs of our coverholders and our customers. A dedicated binding authority team offers administrative support and ensures the smooth running of our contracts for all parties. The Tokio Marine Kiln approach is to develop close and transparent partnerships with firms that share our objectives and business goals and who wish to develop long term relationships built upon mutual trust and cooperation.
