Excellent Financial Strength and Ratings
nifi is the general managing underwriter of film, television and new media completion bonds for OneBeacon Insurance Group (OneBeacon)
, a subsidiary of Intact Financial Corporation (Intact)
. OneBeacon provides insurance solutions for the entertainment industry and other specialty markets. OneBeacon’s underwriting companies consistently receive an “A” (excellent) rating from A.M. Best, the company recognized worldwide as the benchmark for assessing insurers’ financial strength.
Our completion bonds are currently being issued directly by Atlantic Specialty Insurance Company (ASIC), which is an admitted carrier and one of OneBeacon’s highly-rated and financially strong underwriting companies. ASIC takes full responsibility for adjusting claims and paying 100% of any completion bond losses. Accordingly, your financiers and investors, (1) should only need to confirm ASIC’s excellent financial strength rating and avoid the need to pore over the financial strength ratings of numerous insurance and reinsurance companies, and (2) will not have to separately resolve and enforce claims through multiple actions, in various jurisdictions against multiple reinsurers, which is often a prerequisite to any loss recoveries when dealing with other bond companies. Furthermore, OneBeacon has a dedicated claims department with the expertise and experience to investigate and resolve any claim that may arise under our completion bonds. They will provide the forms, instructions, and assistance needed to process any claim. The UniFi team will provide its collective expertise, knowledge, and experience to help to ensure every claim is properly adjusted and quickly paid. UniFi’s re/insurance structure is designed to provide direct and uncomplicated legal and financial security and protection to producers, financiers, and investors.
Our vast expertise and experience coupled with OneBeacon’s strong financial capacity and rating allow us to bond film, television, and new media productions of all genres with budgets at all sizes, including heavy action and visual effects-driven blockbusters.
