Insurtechs bolt and Pathpoint announce small commercial E&S lines integration

Agents can now get small commercial excess and surplus lines directly through bolt’s platform

NEW YORK & WASHINGTON D.C., MARCH 07, 2023 - bolt, the largest insurance exchange in the country, and Pathpoint, the digital wholesaler for small commercial excess and surplus (E&S), today announced the launch of Pathpoint’s integration into bolt Access, bolt’s wholesale agency digital placement platform.

Insurance agents who use bolt Access to place small commercial insurance now have the ability to quickly and easily quote Pathpoint’s small commercial E&S in a true end-to-end digital experience. Rather than separately seeking out wholesale brokers when admitted markets decline to cover a risk, bolt Access users can immediately get quotes for non-admitted markets within the platform, a unique advantage for insurance agents.

“bolt’s partnership with Pathpoint expands the capabilities of our market-leading insurance exchange, and ensures we’re offering bolt Access agents with the comprehensive choice they expect from us to deliver for their clients,” said Jim Dwane, CEO of bolt. “We are excited to take our relationship with Pathpoint to the next level and enable bolt Access agents to meet more of their clients’ needs, faster, and with less effort.”

bolt Access agents can offer their clients non-admitted general liability, property, commercial package, and excess liability coverage across contractors, vacant buildings and land, lessor’s risk, and restaurant verticals fast with this direct integration.

“We’re thrilled to launch this shared mission to provide a technology-first solution to thousands of insurance agents who are looking for optimal ways to get coverage for their clients,” said Alex Bargmann, Pathpoint’s CEO. “Delivering digital solutions that increase productivity for agents is what we do best.”
