Protecting What Matters Most
Vault offers high net worth personal insurance and customized solutions for individuals and families. We’re not just insuring assets, we’re reducing risks with data-driven technology to protect what matters most – cherished moments, family memories, and priceless legacies.
The Right Coverage for When Things Go Wrong
Vault Custom, an excess and surplus lines (E&S) option, provides the most flexibility and customization to luxury homes which may struggle to find adequate coverage with standard insurance.
A standard insurance policy for the mass market often does not meet the needs of unique, high value risks. Vault saw those gaps in coverage for high net worth individuals and built our foundation around it. Where other insurers offer inflexible coverage in black and white, Vault offers a blank canvas with competitive pricing.
What is Excess and Surplus Insurance?
Excess and surplus (E&S) insurance is a tool for high net worth and private customers who have exhausted their solutions in the traditional insurance market.
E&S insurance offers flexibility and creativity tailored to the risk and customized coverage, limits, and pricing. It allows your policy to adapt to rapid market changes, such as those we’ve seen since 2020 with high inflation and disrupted supply chain issues.
Traditional (admitted) insurance has strict regulations on limits and coverage. It’s inflexible and slow to adapt. This can lead to issues such as being underinsured or unable to find coverage if your home is deemed high risk or too complex.
The main benefit of traditional insurance is it is state-backed and regulated, whereas E&S insurance is not. However, the state-backed guaranty fund, may not benefit high net worth customers at all. Most states have payout caps or net worth limitations, and many high net worth customers do not even qualify to receive full coverage from their state guaranty fund.
If a customer’s home and net worth are high, a custom policy can provide the most benefits. For insurers offering E&S, it’s crucial they have strong financial standing and ratings.
Vault is rated A- (Excellent) by AM Best for our financial strength. We also retain an A+ reinsurer panel rating for our conservative reinsurance protection. We hold a prudent approach to financial management and maintain ample capital to insure complex risks.
