XL Insurance, the global insurance underwriting operations of XL Group plc, and All Risks, Ltd., the nation's largest independent privately held wholesale brokerage firm, have announced a new joint underwriting agreement to offer a Dealers Open Lot program, providing physical damage insurance coverage for powersports, auto and RV dealerships nationwide.

"To effectively manage a business' risk, you have to really know the business. That's why XL Insurance values dedicated industry expertise and looks to work with program administrators like All Risks. Their dedicated underwriters have a thorough understanding of the niche markets they serve," says Quinnon Purvis, president of XL Insurance's North America Programs unit.
