CNA Unveils Enhanced BAPP

March 17, 2004

CNA has announced the release of its enhanced Business Account Package Policy (BAPP).

The product will reportedly offer more choice and flexibility in small business coverage and limits, support profitable growth in small business, and give its independent agents the ability to reach a broader small business market. The enhanced BAPP product gives agents three levels of coverage to offer their small business clients: BAPP Basic; BAPP Classic; and BAPP Choice.

“Our independent agents will have more choice and flexibility when it comes to small business offerings from CNA,” said Henry Pippins, senior vice president of Small Business at CNA. “The enhanced BAPP will help agents reach a broader small business market while also helping them target profitable classes of business.”
