The Ocean Marine Division of Great American Insurance Group has created a package of specialized insurance coverages for Marine Terminal Operators, nicknamed the TOPS program. The new program offers marine liability, property, equipment, vessel pollution and other basic coverages as a packaged product that provides comprehensive protection from a single insurance carrier. Terminal Operators must often place different risks with different carriers, since few offer coverage broad enough to include them all. The TOPS program combines the convenience of “one stop shopping” with the financial strength and depth of niche expertise that Great American is well known for.
The TOPS program’s flexible coverages are designed for Port Authorities, Terminal Operators, Stevedores, Cargo Handlers, Wharfingers, Freight Forwarders and other similar maritime professionals.
Great American Insurance Group’s roots go back to 1872 with the founding of its flagship company, Great American Insurance Company. Based in Cincinnati,
Ohio, the operations of Great American Insurance Group are engaged primarily in property and casualty insurance, focusing on specialized commercial products for business and in the sale of traditional fixed, indexed and variable annuities and a variety of supplemental insurance products. The members of Great American Insurance group are subsidiaries of American Financial Group, also based in Cincinnati, Ohio. AFG’s common stock is listed and traded on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) and NASDAQ under the symbol “AFG.” (PR Neswire)
