Automotive Specialty Insurance

Agent Access

The SEMA–Alliant Partnership

As both a retail agency and managing underwriting facility, Alliant takes pride in serving the industries they partner with, in both a retail and wholesale perspective. Through Alliant Specialty Insurance Services, brokers can gain access to two specific products deisgned for the automotive aftermarket industry. 


History: Alliant has become the premier commercial and specialty insurance brokerage firm in the United States through strategic partnership alignments.  Creating vertical alignment with industries throughout the United States, Alliant has formed partnerships to deliver on its commitment to success. In 1991, Alliant became the Insurance Broker to the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA).  SEMA represents the interests of the $40 Billion dollar automotive aftermarket industry.  With over 7,000 SEMA members in the U.S., SEMA reaches all aspects of the motorsports segments, Off-Road marketplace, Auto Restoration and Restyling and new car dealership sales.

With intimate knowledge of the insurance and risk management practices needed to support the automotive industry, the Alliant team started the Specialty Equipment Insurance Alliance (SEIA).  The SEIA program provides Property and Casualty products tailored specifically for automotive parts Manufacturers, Wholesale Distributors and Suppliers in America.  Underwritten through Alliant Specialty Insurance Services, a wholly owned division of Alliant, the SEIA program provides exclusive products to the specialty equipment and aftermarket parts trade and is available to select independent agent on a per approval basis via a co-broker agreement.


As a managing general underwriting facility, AIX Group primary focus is to deliver valued property and casualty insurance products to the niches they serve. These unique  programs -- books of homogeneous business in underserved markets -- using alternative financial techniques allows for flexibility on coverage form and pricing . AIX Group markets Workers' Compensation, General Liability, Property, Auto Liability, and Umbrella coverage through programs established by brokers with specialization. As part of the Hanover Group of Companies, Nova Casualty Insurance Company (A.M.
