West Chester, Pa.—October 23, 2008–Venture Insurance Programs (www.ventureprograms.com ), a national program administrator and leader in the design and underwriting of select industry focused insurance packages, announced today it will offer Coastal Property coverage under a new CATalyst Property Insurance brokerage facility.
CATalyst will support each of Venture’s current industry programs with access to all major property writers, while also providing mono-line coverage for agents and brokers with hard-to-place Coastal, High Hazard or other Specialty Property exposures.
