Peabody, MA:  December 29, 2011:

Energi and HDI-Gerling America Insurance Company have formed a strategic partnership to provide a broad spectrum of risk management and insurance products to the US energy industry. Energi and HDI-Gerling America will offer policyholders the ability to employ unique risk management programs tailored to the specific needs of the energy industry, combined with insurance programs that best fit their individual businesses. The affiliation between Energi & HDI-Gerling America will provide options allowing businesses to choose between Guaranteed Cost, Large Deductible, Retrospective Rated, Group Captive and or Single Account Captive programs.  These products will be offered to select sectors in the fuel distribution, fuel transport, energy construction, renewable energy, energy cooperatives, energy product manufacturers, utilities, and exploration & production markets.

Energi’s Large Deductible, Retrospective Rated Group Captive and/or Single Account Captive alternatives are structured to reduce participating companies’ collateral requirements.  This is a key program feature, in light of the economic challenges facing businesses today.
