Chronos Retail

Catastrophe and specialty insurance can be challenging to place, requiring considerable time and effort in sourcing the right products. That's why at Chronos, we provide a consultative approach to underwriting, offering select retail producers direct access to our underwriting expertise through the Chronos Exclusive Agency Program.

For the independent agent, an appointment with Chronos offers increased transaction efficiencies and greater financial value. By working with a short list of key producers, we're able to channel submissions and assign risks more quickly than our competitors. Our Exclusive Agents benefit from the experience of our product specialists, analysts and engineers, and the dedicated attention of an Agent Relationship Manager who serves as an extension of your team. This partnership means you can stay focused on meeting the needs of your insureds while realizing the upside of our expertise.

For further details on our Exclusive Agency Program, contact your designated Relationship Managers.
