Insurance rates are increasing in all industries, including the real-estate sector, as we enter a hard market driven by catastrophic property losses and higher liability settlements throughout the country over the past several years. Risks in coastal, high wind or wildfire-prone areas will be especially challenged by increased premiums and limited availability of adequate coverage. We also see that, as the real estate industry incorporates IoT, Cyber and Professional liability coverage need to be a part of an organization’s insurance portfolio and risk management strategy. Mixed-use properties, smart buildings and lifestyle centers are among the trends redefining the commercial real estate market; delivering the space today’s tenants expect while protecting your operations means addressing traditional and emerging risks in a hardening insurance marketplace.
