Why we use acord forms:
We get a lot of questions about why we use Acords. As Lloyd cover holders, we are proud members of ACORD. Acord is a non-profit organization that has been providing global insurance industry standards since 1970.
Our focus is on hard to place risks and so any attempt at standardization is greatly appreciated. We get that not all questions apply to you, but often times Acords are the best starting point when we broker a risk. Acord works with Carriers, Reinsurers, Brokers, Agents, Markets, Regulators, Insureds, Vendors, Industry Associations, MGAs, MGUs, and other stakeholders to navigate the ever changing landscape of regulations and keep up with the pace of technology. In a world full of uncertainty, Acords assist us in assessing risk in the most efficient, accurate, and effective way.
There are exceptions. We request supplemental information for carriers and some of those applications can be found here: https://www.bigfoot.insure/supplemental-applications
Also, our Auto & Trucking and Garage & Dealers department require separate applications found here: https://www.bigfoot.insure/products/transportation and /www.bigfoot.insure/products/garage
