Appalachian Coastal Advantage

Appalachian Coastal Advantage (ACA) is a new homeowners program, with a primary focus on lower to mid-market coastal homeowners. The program is 100% backed by Lloyd’s, through the ICAT syndicate and offered exclusively by AUI.

ICAT were founded in 1998 and the syndicate is rated A+ by Standard and Poor’s. Their experience in providing insurance protection for homeowners and businesses located in hurricane and earthquake exposed regions of the United States is unique among Lloyd’s syndicates.

Currently available in coastal Alabama for Baldwin and Mobile counties, coastal Texas and most of Florida (Monroe county excluded). The program will eventually encompass all coastal tier 1 and tier 2 areas from Texas to Virginia, on a non-admitted, surplus lines basis.

With limited Coastal distance restrictions, highly competitive pricing, multiple premium credits, and Coverage A values from $100,000 to $2,000,000, ACA is your first ideal solution for coastal property exposures.
