Skyward Specialty has discontinued its capacity deal with cyber MGA Cowbell, over six months after the firms began the collaboration, Insurance Insider US can reveal.
This decision by Skyward Specialty to withdraw from the cyber and tech E&O paper deal with Cowbell comes as a surprise after the partnership appeared to be off to a promising start. The collaboration between the two companies began over six months ago, and it was anticipated that the agreement would continue to be mutually beneficial.
The reason behind Skyward Specialty’s decision to pull out of the deal with Cowbell has not been disclosed. It is possible that there were disagreements or conflicts between the two companies that led to this outcome. Both parties will now need to find alternative strategies and partnerships to fill the gap left by the discontinuation of this deal.
This development highlights the volatility and unpredictability of the insurance industry. Even collaborations that initially seem promising can fall apart, forcing companies to reassess their strategies and find new partners. The cyber and tech E&O market is highly competitive, and insurers are constantly seeking ways to differentiate themselves and gain a competitive edge. Skyward Specialty’s decision to pull out of the deal with Cowbell may indicate that the company has identified other opportunities or partnerships that they believe will be more lucrative.
Cowbell will likely feel the impact of losing this capacity deal with Skyward Specialty. Without Skyward’s backing, Cowbell may need to seek alternative sources of capacity or adjust their business model to continue operating in the cyber and tech E&O market. It will be interesting to see how Cowbell responds to this setback and whether they are able to find a new partner to replace Skyward Specialty.
The insurance industry is constantly evolving, and companies must be adaptable and agile in order to succeed. This recent development serves as a reminder that partnerships and collaborations can be fluid, and companies must be prepared to adjust their strategies and find new opportunities as circumstances change.
