Victory® Non-Admitted Plus

Small Artisan Contractor General Liability

The Victory® Non-Admitted Plus Contractor Program, underwritten by a Non-Admitted carrier rated A- by A.M. Best Co., takes what you're already familiar with and expands the classes of business we will accept, including the size of the risks. The intent is to offer you a product that has been traditionally underwritten via Acord applications, supplements and a great deal of time, and couple it with BTIS' online submission process. The result is a quote turnaround time translating into more binds.
