“With the continued expansion of our portfolio, our goal is to be the preferred insurance carrier our agents turn to for their insureds. With these additions, the company now offers its Personal Lines products in 23 states with plans for further expansion throughout the year,” said Sy Foguel, Berkshire Hathaway GUARD CEO. “As we come out of a record-breaking year for catastrophic events across the country, we recognize the need in the marketplace for a sense of security and we believe we can provide that for our policyholders.”

As noted by Assistant Vice President of Personal Lines Joseph Walton, “Our personal lines products have proven to be very popular in the previous states we introduced, and we are very pleased with the caliber of submissions we’ve received. Our success can be attributed to Berkshire Hathaway GUARD providing a customizable product along with a high level of service to both agents and policyholders.”

GUARD’s product targets dwellings valued over $75,000 and includes one- to four-family residences, renters, and condo units (both owner-occupied and those held for rental). The company offers a variety of optional coverages aimed at broader protection so that policyholders can obtain property insurance suited to their circumstances. A Personal Umbrella with limits up to $5,000,000 is also available.

According to Chief Insurance Officer Lyle Hitt, “We are confident that we can provide great service to agents that write both commercial and personal accounts. Our products are competitively priced and feature a variety of discounts, including one for insureds who have commercial policies with us. We also believe certain aspects of our underwriting appetite are unique and will appeal to producers anxious to cross-sell and achieve a greater client share.”
