The Guarantee Launches H2O+ Water Protection

The Guarantee Company of North America (The Guarantee) launches their eagerly awaited water endorsements, GUARANTEE GOLD H2O+ and Guarantee SUPERIOR H2O+ effective immediately for new business and May 23, 2017 for renewals. The comprehensive, read-in coverage sits on top of existing sewer back-up coverage in every residential policy and is designed to offer complete water protection for all policyholders by extending coverage to overland or fresh water flooding, damage caused by ground and surface water and waterborne ice.

The new endorsement addresses the gaps in coverage most homeowners currently face and offers broad availability extending to all risk types at fair and individualized pricing.

Partnerships with flood modeling experts, Aon Benfield & Impact Forecasting, allow The Guarantee to access technology that assesses the individual geographical area of virtually the entire Canadian population for flood risk.

The Guarantee has also partnered with Opta Intelligence Services in offering a technological tool which gives brokers enhanced capabilities. While brokers can still utilize the GUARANTEE GOLD and Guarantee SUPERIOR underwriting teams as a quoting resource, they will also soon be able to calculate H2O+ premium instantly and directly through the use of Opta’s iClarify quoting tool.

As this new and progressive coverage is being read-in to existing policies with sewer back-up, the customer will automatically be given improved coverage for the duration of the current term of their policy with no extra effort or expense.
