BIB, which sells to retail insurance agents, has been in business 15 years. In addition to traditional property/casualty, it offers policies for executive and professional liability, which includes directors and officers, and errors and omissions policies, as well as medical malpractice for doctors, long-term care facilities and physicians in correctional facilities. Another one of its niches is in high-value personal lines, insuring high-dollar homes and personal items such as jewelry and artwork.
