MORRISTOWN, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 23, 2020--

Berkley One (a Berkley Company), an insurance provider for modern, sophisticated individuals and families, today announced its expansion into Michigan as well as the addition of new coverage enhancements in its first state, Illinois.

Entry into Michigan presents more choices for primary residents and owners of secondary homes, which are prevalent in the state.

Additionally, homeowner clients can now obtain excess flood coverage with limits up to $15 million per structure and $20 million per location.

“We ended last year strong and we aren’t wasting any time in 2020. This launch demonstrates our ability to build faster and farther while still advancing our more established states.
