Working with Shepherd
This opportunity was sent to Shepherd seeking support over the lead umbrella. We responded within one business day, providing our initial indication and appetite to participate in the program. Moreover, we offered several layer options and promptly provided our final pricing within just 20 minutes of receiving the request.
Why We Won
Our team has established a strong partnership with the broker thanks to our success on prior opportunities, which has resulted in this submission. We took the time to work closely with the broker to gain a thorough understanding of the client's tower needs and offered multiple limit options to support their tower build-out. Ultimately, our competitive pricing and high level of service helped us secure this placement.
Our partnership with Shepherd has continued to flourish. Their responsiveness and efficiency have been impressive and continued to shine on this opportunity. Shepherd's team assessed the program needs and learned where they could best provide value to the client. We collectively decided on a precise approach to target a particular attachment. Shepherd exceeded expectations with their prompt solution that made the insured very comfortable with leaving the incumbent. Their expertise, competitive pricing and effective communication differentiate them from the competition. I look forward to expanding the partnership and will continue to recommend Shepherd to clients across the industry.
