Auditing underwriting practices for run-off business

Run-Off Reviews

Run-Off Reviews

Run-off audits focus on underwriting practices and risks written immediately prior to the cancellation or lapse of a delegated underwriting authority agreement. Our analysis will include commentary on short- and long-tail liability exposures, if any, as well as an opinion on risk management issues that may impact results.

For Lloyd’s Coverholders, the report will include a review of the Coverholder’s ability to manage ongoing documentation, premium remittance and claims for the expected period of run-off.
