Arrowhead Tribal has new name, expanded coverage
August 11, 2016 – San Diego, CA – Arrowhead General Insurance Agency, Inc. (Arrowhead), one of the nation’s largest program administrators, has expanded and renamed its tribal insurance program. Formerly housed under subsidiary OnPoint Underwriting as the Program for Sovereign Indian Nations, the new Arrowhead Tribal Program has added a carrier to cover a wider variety of risks.
Alongside carrier Zurich North America, Arrowhead has added Old Republic Insurance Company, offering more flexible self-insured retention options, cyber liability coverage and fiduciary coverage.
“As tribal enterprises grow, necessitating insurance coverage for new and ever-expanding risks, our coverage for those risks is growing as well,” explained Scott Marshall, senior vice president at Arrowhead. “For nearly 30 years this team has worked exclusively with tribal nations.”
Created in 1987, the program offers specialized insurance coverage recognizing tribal sovereignty as established by the Constitution. Consulting with tribal leaders provided first-hand experience in the intricate exposures and special circumstances experienced by tribal governments, gaming and enterprises. Arrowhead’s in-house claims team understands tribal law, tribal court systems, FTCA protection and tribal sovereignty claim issues.
“Our longevity in this business helps us understand the complex exposures of tribal governments and their enterprises,” said Brett Barnsley, director of business development.
Arrowhead’s Tribal Program provides comprehensive property coverage; general, liquor and professional liability; tribal workers’ benefits; auto physical damage and liability; and excess liability.
