Transcript of Equipment Breakdown 2

The Business Opportunity Highlight a business opportunity
Examine property exclusions to understand EBI coverage need
Demonstrate coverage through claims The Business Opportunity
99.9% of all our customer require Equipment Breakdown Coverage
The business opportunity is that less than 30% have this coverage Why do 99.9% of Risks RequireEquipment Breakdown Coverage?

How many customers do you have that do not use electricity? Is Coverage for Electrical Arcing Provided Under a Standard Property Policy?

Excluded under both property and perils sections of the policy

Mechanical Breakdown
Centrifugal Force
Pressure Vessels over 15 psi
Boilers under steam pressure The Financial Picture
Over $370M in EBI premium in 2012

Exposing a $650 M in premium shortfall

That's a compelling Business Opportunity Questions to Consider

Would a broker who identifies opportunities to broaden coverage reduce exposure to potential E & O?

How would a client properly informed on coverage prior to the loss, affect retention with that broker after the loss?

How could a competing broker, that identifies a missing coverage, affect the incumbents’ account retention? Retail Strip Plaza Owner
