Q: What to do about rising business insurance rates?

A:  If COVID wasn’t bad enough, business insurance companies are at the tail-end of the increasing rate cycle that is characterized by tightened underwriting, lower risk capacity and higher than normal rate increases (a “hard” market).  The good news is, as the economy recovers and heats up in the second half of 2021, this cycle may break under the pressure of increased competition for market share by competing insurance companies. 


At American Insurance we are already seeing some cracks in the increasing premium rate cycle. When some businesses were offered unreasonable rate increases, we quoted their coverage in many other companies we represent and were able to reduce the premium rate.  We represent or have access to a broad range of top insurance companies that all compete for your business.  Competition is the best way to find the lowest rates in the insurance marketplace.
