1347 Property Insurance Holdings Inc

Business Description


1347 Property Insurance Holdings, Inc. was incorporated on October 2, 2012 in the State of Delaware under the name Maison Insurance Holdings, Inc. On November 19, 2013 we changed our legal name to 1347 Property Insurance Holdings, Inc. The Company has three wholly owned subsidiaries: Maison Insurance Company (“Maison”), Maison Managers, Inc. (“MMI”), and ClaimCor, LLC (“ClaimCor”).

Through Maison, we began providing property and casualty insurance to individuals in Louisiana in December 2012. On May 13, 2015, the Company was notified by the Texas Department of Insurance (the “TDI”) that a Certificate of Authority had been granted to Maison, allowing us to begin writing insurance in the State of Texas. Our insurance offerings in Louisiana and Texas include homeowners insurance, manufactured home insurance and dwelling fire insurance. We write both full peril property policies as well as wind/hail only exposures and we produce new policies through a network of independent insurance agents. We refer to the policies we write through independent agents as voluntary policies.

Additionally, we began writing commercial business in Texas in June 2015, through an alliance with Brotherhood Mutual Insurance Company (“Brotherhood”). Through this alliance, we have assumed wind/hail only exposures on certain churches and related structures Brotherhood insures throughout the State of Texas.

We have also participated in the “take-out” program implemented by Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Company (“Citizens”). As the State of Louisiana has not historically been in the business of serving as an insurer, this program was implemented to reduce the number of properties insured by Citizens. Under the take-out program, state-approved insurance companies such as Maison have the opportunity to assume insurance policies written by Citizens. It has been Maison’s practice to date to participate in such take-out programs, and Maison plans to continue doing so from time to time in the future. We have participated in the last four rounds of take-outs from Citizens, occurring on December 1st of each year.

We process claims made by our policyholders both internally, through our wholly-owned subsidiary, ClaimCor, as well as through various third-party claims adjusting companies. These agents have no authority to settle our claims or otherwise exercise control over the claims process. We believe that the retention of independent adjusters, in addition to the employment of salaried claims personnel, results in reduced loss payments, lower loss adjustment expenses (“LAE”) and improved customer service for our policyholders.

Maison Managers, Inc. serves as the Company’s management services subsidiary, known as a managing general agency. MMI earns commissions and a $25 per policy fee for providing policy administration, marketing, reinsurance contract negotiation, and accounting and analytical services. Both Maison and MMI are licensed by and subject to the regulatory oversight of the Louisiana Department of Insurance (“LDI”) and TDI.

Our primary goal is to continue to expand our property and casualty writings through:

Increasing our number of voluntary policies. In recent years, large national insurance companies have significantly reduced their writing of homeowners’ policies in Louisiana. We believe this trend presents an opportunity to acquire a number of homeowners’ policies from these national insurers. We continue to focus on expanding our relationship with our network of agents in an effort to secure new voluntary business.

Strategic acquisitions. We intend to explore growth opportunities through strategic acquisitions in coastal states, including Louisiana, and Texas. We also plan to pursue complementary books of business provided they meet our underwriting criteria. We will evaluate each opportunity based on expected economic contribution to our results and support of our market expansion initiatives.

Attracting and retaining high-quality agents. We intend to focus our marketing efforts on maintaining and improving our relationships with highly productive independent agents, as well as on attracting new high quality agents in areas with a substantial potential for growth.

Reducing our ratio of expenses to net premiums earned and using technology to increase our operating efficiency. We are committed to improving our profitability by reducing expenses through enhanced technologies and by increasing the number of policies we write through the strategic deployment of our capital. We currently outsource our policy administration and claims handling functions to third parties, which we believe results in increased service and lower expense and loss ratios.
