New York, NY (July 21, 2016) – Everest Insurance™ announces the expansion of their Umbrella and Excess Casualty offering with their new Peak Protect™ policy form. Peak Protect™ is an enhanced commercial umbrella policy form with many unique features. An exciting addition to this new cutting edge form is the inclusion of Crisis Event Protection coverage, with an optional reinstated crisis limit in the event of a crisis.
Donna K. Pruett, Head of Umbrella and Excess Casualty at Everest Insurance™ commented, “We are excited to officially
launch this new form and are thankful for the timely and thoughtful input given to us in the form review process by our
broker trading partners. We believe this form will be a competitive advantage for Everest as the Crisis Event Protection,
with reinstatement of the crisis event limit, is an innovative solution that supports our clients immediately in their time of
greatest need - during a crisis."
The Everest offering includes capacity up to $25 million, with larger limits available for select clients and worldwide coverage available. Everest also offers the same form in an A/B version as well as several industry-specific Peak Protect enhancements addressing the unique needs of the hospitality, grocers, real estate, restaurants, and retail industries.
