The team at FAIA recently had a conversation with VYRD’s President & CEO, David Howard, to discuss their plans for Citizens take-outs, agency appointments, and voluntary business.
When the Florida insurance world heard that a newly formed homeowners’ insurance carrier was stepping into the troubled Florida waters, reactions ranged from cynical to apoplectic.
VYRD, a new insurance company serving homeowners in Florida, has today launched as a joint venture between SiriusPoint Ltd. (“SiriusPoint” | NYSE: SPNT), a specialty insurer and reinsurer; and insurtech company bolt.
According to a report, the new carrier will be selecting up to 42,045 customers of state-owned Citizens Property Insurance Corp., who will receive an offer to join the new company.
