Neptune and Transverse Launch New $30 Million Premium Capacity Program to Expand Flood Insurance Availability Nationwide

Capacity expansion positions Neptune to meet surging demand for its NFIP alternative flood insurance product

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., April 28, 2021 — Neptune Flood, the first AI-driven flood insurance company to provide fast, easy and better flood insurance, announced the launch of its latest capacity program sponsored by Transverse Insurance Group and backed by a panel of global reinsurers, which was placed through Acrisure Re (formerly Beach & Associates). Neptune policies placed with the program will carry the Transverse AM Best A- (Excellent) rating.

The $30 million premium capacity program will enable Neptune to meet the surging demand for Neptune’s flood insurance alternative to the government backed NFIP program. The program will look to protect approximately $10 billion in home and business value from the catastrophic risk of flooding. Hurricane season begins on May 15 and on the back of last year’s record number of storms, is expected to be another above average season.

“Neptune is proud to partner with Transverse and its experienced team of underwriters and program administrators. Transverse will help Neptune to serve tens of thousands of additional homeowners and businesses,” said Neptune CEO Trevor Burgess. “Neptune is the fast and easy alternative to the NFIP and most of the time we can save the home or business owner money while providing superior coverage.”
