Bernard Lauper talks hard markets in Wine Country


Bernard Lauper talks hard markets in Wine Country

The market for insurance in many parts of California have hardened substantially following the recent wildfire outbreaks. Insurers are pulling back in these markets - cancelling policies and not renewing others.

Recently, Bernard Lauper, CEO of MacCorckle Insurance, acquired by Risk Strategies in 2015, sat down with Inside Napa Valley host Latife Hayson for a wide ranging discussion looking at the region’s experience and outlook in light of this new ‘hard market’. The conversation covered a number of important points, including, among other topics:

  • The best way to choose a carrier to avoid claims surprises
  • Steps owners can take when building or rebuilding to have a better chance of gaining insurance with an admitted carrier
  • Ways to show proof of contents in homes
