Working with Shepherd

This new business submission came to Shepherd with a request to quote the first excess layer, which we provided appetite for the following business day. After carefully reviewing the account specifics, we identified a chance to offer favorable terms and pricing for the lead umbrella. Taking initiative, we promptly provided quotes for both layers within just 3 business days.
