  • Focused Expertise

    GC Access is a best-in-class solution dedicated to the growth of the program segment. You'll be serviced by an organization that is completely focused on your space.

    MGA analytics tends to be less catastrophe and more predictive loss and actuarial modeling focused. GC Access’ dedicated analytics team will provide unique tools to inform your decision-making.
  • Embedded Contract Support

    MGA contracts are different than those of our other clients: they tend to reflect closer to insurance than reinsurance contracts. A dedicated BSS team in conjunction with program specific brokers enables us to offer best-in-class contract support.
