Equity capital investment positions new Managing General Agent for scale and underwriting differentiation in the rapidly growing private residential flood market

TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — K2 Insurance Services (K2) today announced a strategic investment in Titan Flood Inc., a new Managing General Agent (MGA) specializing in the Private Residential Flood market. K2 has agreed to make an equity investment in Titan Flood and will oversee its long-term strategy through participation on its board of directors.

Titan Flood is being launched by flood industry veteran, Stephanie Lee. Stephanie was co-founder and COO of Neptune Flood, a leading provider of private flood insurance programs in the U.S. Stephanie chose Solstice Innovations, Inc. as its technology partner, to deliver an unparalleled user experience. Solstice CEO, Travis Pine was CTO at National Flood Services (NFS) prior to starting TorrentFlood, which quickly grew to be the 2nd largest service and technology provider in its space prior to being sold to Marsh USA in 2014.

The creation of a profitable flood portfolio requires intelligent data analysis of single risk modeling for eligibility and pricing. This is Titan’s focal point. Titan has built an AI-based rating engine to evaluate and to dynamically price residential flood insurance – in seconds. Homeowners can learn about their flood risk, select custom coverage, and buy online or with an agent in just a few minutes. Titan Flood is working to build the #1 private flood MGA in America, with a customer centered approach that offers a faster, simpler, more informed customer experience.

Titan’s product will be distributed through independent agencies, direct-to-consumer and also using embedded channels via API. The seamless integration of Titan’s platform into any app or website enables homeowners to learn more about their flood exposure and to buy flood protection while shopping for a new home, applying for a mortgage or buying homeowners insurance.

Titan will initially be available as a surplus lines product for residential risks in 15 states, representing an estimated 80% of the addressable market for residential flood insurance.

Stephanie Lee, CEO and Founder, commented: “We are thrilled to be partnering with K2. With our NextGen solution we are extremely well-positioned to build Titan Flood into the leading provider of Private Flood insurance solutions for the U.S. We look forward to delivering best in class experiences to our customers and partners early next year.”

When the opportunity came along to partner with Stephanie to develop a new, best-of-breed MGA, we jumped on it. Our management team has extensive industry experience and a demonstrated track record of growing insurance businesses. We are very excited to partner with Stephanie and to see how Titan Flood can provide industry-leading underwriting results in the rapidly growing Private Flood market.”
