Programs

We’ve got you covered.

Method writes in all non-monopolistic states, offering access to a wide variety of markets — many of which we exclusively represent. We generally have the power of the pen, allowing us to make quick, AI-informed decisions.

Unlike many multi-line carriers, we don’t shy away from challenging accounts. We even have a program to save your client from going into the pool. And if we can't find a fit within any of our dedicated programs, we have one of the largest wholesale networks.
