Safepoint Insurance Company Licensed to Enter the Louisiana Homeowners Market

Tampa, FL (September 23, 2015) – Safepoint Insurance (Safepoint) today announced the Company has been authorized by the Louisiana Department of Insurance to write Personal Property business in the state of Louisiana. Safepoint was launched in November of 2013 to initially write Florida homeowners business. The Company has been assigned an AM Best Rating of B and a Financial Stability Rating® of A, Exceptional, from Demotech, Inc., leading providers of financial ratings for insurance companies.

Based in Tampa, FL, Safepoint is led by David Flitman, Chief Executive Officer, who has extensive insurance and reinsurance experience in the coastal markets and beyond. Prior to launching Safepoint, David was based in Bermuda as the Executive Director of Global Property Underwriting and Chief Actuary for Flagstone Reassurance Suisse SA. In this role, David participated on a number of Florida and Louisiana reinsurance programs.

Initially, Safepoint will assume policies from Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Corporation on December 1, 2015. The Company will limit its assumption to policies it intends to write over the long-term. In the spring of 2016, Safepoint will launch a new “preferred” homeowners product to expand their market presence.

Mr. Flitman commented “We are very pleased to add to our Florida business and enter the dynamic Louisiana property insurance market to offer Louisianans another choice for their insurance. Safepoint is committed to being a long-term partner of the independent insurance agents in Louisiana by providing high quality service and financial security for their customers.”
