Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What makes Olympus Insurance different?
A: When we launched in 2007, we were fully capitalized with $50 million in policy holder surplus (PHS). Our growth has been primarily focused on organic growth generated by our independent agency partners. In 2009, we also obtained a strong quota share reinsurance treaty, which gives us even stronger claims paying ability. Further evidence of our financial stability is the fact that in December of 2009, we paid back a $16 million SBA loan leaving us with over $20 million in PHS– far in excess of state requirements.
Q: How much reinsurance does Olympus have?
A: Olympus Insurance currently carries catastrophe reinsurance in excess of a 100 year storm which has a less than 1% chance of occurring. Our strong quota share reinsurance treaty enhances financial stability by relieving stress on our policyholder surplus and reducing exposure to volatile loss experience.
Q: How many properties does Olympus Insurance currently insure?
A: Olympus currently underwrites 60,000+ policies generating over $100,000,000 in premiums. With our strong financial background, we have the capacity to insure twice that many.
Q: Why should I choose Olympus as my Insurance partner?
A: Our business discipline, our financial strength, our policyholder surplus and our strong reinsurance structure, all mean that homeowners can have confidence that claims will be fully covered. We underwrite all of our own policies. Additionally we provide excellent customer service, which is founded on expert advice to ensure that every one of our policy holders get coverage they need. We pride ourselves not just on the services we offer, but on the relationships we build with our customers.
Q: How would an active hurricane season affect Olympus?
A: An extremely active season would challenge homeowners and insurance companies alike. Though there are no guarantees, our financial and reinsurance position mean that Olympus Insurance is well positioned to endure a season the like we have yet to see in our lifetime.
