OLDWICK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 23, 2018--A panel of industry leaders in the surplus lines sector of the U.S. insurance market will review the market and highlights of a new report on that sector.

This complimentary webinar, cosponsored by the WSIA Education Foundation and Lexington Insurance Company, will be on Wednesday, September 19, 2018, at 2 p.m. (EDT).
