Claims Made Stand Alone Excess Liability policy form - US Style

This claims made policy is traditional in nature and is designed to apply above a self-insured retention. This policy will respond to paid losses greater than the self-insured retention.
Claims Made Stand Alone Excess Liability policy form - Bermuda Style

This claims made policy is crafted in the style of the Bermuda XL-004 policy form. It can be used to be the first policy over a policyholder’s self-insured retention or can be used in subsequent excess liability layers.
Claims Made Follow Form Excess Liability policy form – U.S. Style

This claims made policy is also traditional in nature, but is somewhat more concise as the terms and conditions basically reflect the terms of the policy of the first layer (‘lead policy’). This form will follow all the terms and conditions of the lead policy unless specifically endorsed and will respond to losses only after limits of the lead policy have been exhausted.
Claims Made Excess Liability policy form – Reinsurance Certificate

This policy form is used to reinsure a policyholder’s captive insurance company. The terms of the certificate may be written to follow all terms and conditions of the captive’s insurance policy or may be tailored to include terms that may not be in accordance with the original policy terms.
