The MGA marketplace is where complex and interesting risks are written. What enables the market to function is the pooling of these extraordinary risks in specialized MGAs. This is accomplished through the contractual arrangement known as delegated authority. Discover how the legal framework of Delegated Authority allows the entrepreneurial focus of MGAs to flourish, and how underwriting, claims and reputational risk management are all navigated within this arrangement.

Webinar Objectives

• Explain the legal and contractual considerations for delegated authority
• Identify commercial liability considerations for MGAs
• Describe the MGA mindset
