The Company also announced that Kingstone Insurance Company ("KICO"), its wholly-owned subsidiary, finalized a new 25% personal lines quota share treaty for the period December 15, 2019 through December 31, 2020. "This new treaty enables us to reduce our catastrophe retention (from $7,500,000 to $5,625,000) and further benefits us by providing a material increase to year end 2019 statutory surplus. Reducing our premium leverage going into 2020 was one of my first goals upon returning as CEO," said Barry Goldstein, the Company’s President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman. The reinsurers (Swiss Re, Hannover Re and Allied World) are all long-time partners of KICO.
