Tampa, FL (November 22, 2013) – Safepoint Insurance (Safepoint) today announced the Company has been licensed by the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation (the OIR) to write homeowners business in the state of Florida. The Company has been assigned a Financial Stability Rating® of A, Exceptional, from Demotech, Inc., a leading provider of financial ratings for insurance companies.

Based in Tampa, Safepoint will be led by David Flitman, Chief Executive Officer, who has extensive insurance and reinsurance experience in the Florida market and beyond. Most recently, David was based in Bermuda as the Executive Director of Global Property Underwriting and Chief Actuary for Flagstone Reassurance Suisse SA.
