AmerInst Insurance Group plans to offer professional liability insurance to accounting firms through an agreement with some of Crum & Forster Holdings’ insurance companies.

AmerInst’s recently formed subsidiary, AmerInst Professional Services, will deliver marketing, underwriting, application and other services to insured firms and C&F insurance companies. AmerInst will also provide reinsurance to C&F insurance companies for the professional liability business.

APSL will be headquartered in Chicago, under the direction of Kyle Nieman, a 25-year veteran of the insurance industry who has been named CEO. Most of the shareholders of AmerInst are CPAs or with CPA firms. For more information about the program, visit
