BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Upland adds teams, launches E&O, excess cyber products


Upland Capital Group Inc. said Wednesday it had added underwriters and expanded its product offering to include professional liability errors and omissions, and excess cyber liability coverage.

The professional liability team is led by West Hartford, Connecticut-based Kate Walas, who joined Upland from Indigo Specialty Underwriters last fall. The product offers up to $10 million in limits to professional service firms. The minimum deductible is $2,500 and the minimum premium is $1,500.

Other staff on the team, who all previously worked at Indigo, are Steve Adam, senior vice president; Kevin Kiernan, vice president; and Roberta Loura, senior underwriter.

The excess cyber liability team is led by Miami-based Jackie Lee, who joined from Validus Specialty Underwriting Services Inc. in January. The product offers up to $10 million in capacity to financial services, technology, retail, construction and manufacturing risks.

The coverage can be blended with technology E&O and miscellaneous professional liability coverage, Upland said in a statement.

Thomas Riley, who also came from Validus, is senior underwriter on the excess cyber team.

Dallas-based Upland launched as an excess and surplus lines insurer in 2021.
