AmWINS Group & California Compliance Insurance Solutions (CCIS)

The new Next Gen coverage template is easy to understand. It is easy and less expensive to use as compared to the Golden, and it is easy to maintain. Suppliers will be comfortable using the coverage template to transfer invalidation risk prior to the delivery of ARBOCs. Buyers will be comfortable using it when ARBOCs are delivered, and the Reinsurers will be comfortable when purchasing a 3-year and soon an 8-year coverage term using the Next-Gen coverage template.
