Celebrating its 10th anniversary, New Day unveiled the annual recap as its latest tool for helping agents, brokers and clients navigate the changing construction marketplace with optimal risk management solutions.

This includes state-of-the-market descriptions, policy analyses, pricing, changes and leading influencers such as “the realities of national and world events, natural disasters and the lightening-quick advancement of technology.”For instance, the 2015 Market Update section on Professional Liability notes the CPrL market’s continual expanse with supplemental coverages such as crisis management, disaster response, Building Information Modeling (BIM) and corporate reputation coverages. This includes a rising claim frequency rate with carriers reporting as much as a 20% increase over the previous year. Also foreseen are ever-increasing owner requests and a heightened dependence on technology that places “a higher demand on the standard of care, which only increases the value of the professional liability insurance products.” “Our goal is to solve client challenges and lead the market with the insight and knowledge necessary to overcome both foreseeable and unforeseen construction industry risks,” said Jefferey Lejfer, president and CEO at New Day Underwriting Managers. “The standard design-build period has nearly vanished.
