About our Business
The excess & surplus lines (E&S) market enables consumers to purchase property/casualty insurance coverages unavailable
in the standard or admitted market.
The difficult risks accepted by surplus lines carriers require innovative underwriting
and expertise. This problem-solving ability is a hallmark of E&S insurance. Without access to the E&S market, many consumers would be
unable to obtain the insurance they need to stay in business.
Regulations restricting the E&S industry prevent us from advertising or selling our products directly to consumers. At Nationwide, we attribute our success to our customers and business partners, the top wholesale general agents, brokers and program
managers in the nation, who sell our products through local insurance professionals who have direct contact with the public.
We are one of the largest insurance and financial service providers in the United States, with more than $2 billion in assets.
