• Walnut believes in careful account underwriting and is obsessive about establishing correct insurance to value (ITV), followed by rigidly enforced loss control inspection of each building and recommendations for risk improvement.
  • Walnut underwrites each fire division against the peril of fire in order to determine the Fire PML (Probable Maximum Loss).
  • Walnut uses various tools to establish ‘Insurance To Value’, including ‘Pictometry’ and ‘Marshall Swift Beck’. Pictometry is a paid service wherein the vendor has taken low level aerial photographs of each building from a height of 250 ft. above ground level using drone technology. This provides an astonishing degree of detail for our underwriters to make an assessment of the construction and roof materials of each structure and distances between structures, as well as an accurate measure of square footage.
  • Walnut Advisory inspects every building of every location of every risk immediately post binding, using several nationally reputed loss control vendors.

  • Walnut Advisory underwrites carefully against the peril of hail in hail prone states, using a carefully thought out, state specific hail strategy.

  • Walnut does not write Flood or Quake in critical CAT zones, but the agency does make an underwriting assessment for these perils on each risk. Walnut’s strongest target segments within the Habitational class are ‘Off Campus Student Housing’, ’55 and Older Communities’ and Rehabbed, heavily built, non-combustible buildings from the early 20th Century, which typically contain ceramic insulation from that era.
  • Walnut uses the FBI Crime Stats and Riskmeter.com to assess neighborhood quality, in order to evaluate risk of vandalism, theft, etc.
  • Walnut provides top flight expertise and service to retailers who control a significant amount of Multi-Unit Habitational business, but who need help to manage that business and place appropriate and competitive coverage on it year after year. Approximately 40% of Walnut Advisory’s entire Apartment/Condo book is comprised of newly built frame, sprinklered apartment and condo properties coming off builders’ risk.”
