Q. How does Hull & Company do business?
A. We are strictly a wholesale distributor of insurance products. We only transact business between insurance companies and insurance agents and brokers. We do not do business directly with the public.
Hull & Company acts as an MGA (Managing General Agent) and as a Wholesale Broker.
Hull represents many insurance companies as an MGA. In this capacity we may handle all, part of, or a combination of advertising, marketing, rating, quoting, binding, policy issuance, policy maintenance, accounting and other miscellaneous functions.
As a wholesale broker we help insurance agents access a broader group of specialty insurance companies. We negotiate terms and are responsible for ongoing communication with the carrier during the policy period. We also bring our knowledge of surplus lines to the table.

Q. What is E&S Insurance?
A. E&S stands for Excess and Surplus Lines. This refers to the segment of the insurance market that serves types of accounts that are hard to place or accounts that are located in areas that present special hazards. In other words, the E&S insurance market writes the accounts that cannot be covered in the standard insurance market.
