We are Accelerant

We empower underwriters

Accelerant is led by a team of insurance industry veterans, software experts, and data scientists who understand the unique needs of MGAs, MGUs, and program administrators – and the challenges of working with conventional capacity providers. Accelerant offers a fresh perspective and a brand-new model for risk exchange, We are not a fronting carrier. Instead, we act as a platform that delivers specialty underwriters best-in-class data, hands-on portfolio support, and long-term capacity, while offering our excellent group of risk capital partners access to  an attractive portfolio of risk.

Offering peace of mind and stability

What we write

We value underwriters’ expertise. We believe the scarce resource in the market is talented underwriters. When we connect with such a team, we listen and learn about their business and the opportunities they see in their market.

We do not have the same underwriting appetite as your traditional insurer might. We prefer to support low severity commercial portfolios with little natural catastrophe exposure.

A new horizon in risk exchange

We started by supporting specialty underwriters with a unique Membership that spanned their data, capital, and operational needs. That member-centric obsession and transparency has ruffled some feathers — but is also quickly becoming the backbone for a new approach to transacting insurance.

Member-centric culture

Our job is to make our Members successful. The best underwriters are specialists, which makes their needs necessarily unique. And the question we always ask ourselves at Accelerant is, how do we support our underwriters today better than we did yesterday? At its core, it’s simple: technology, data, and dynamic support.
