Favorable breezes for business

So far in 2022, RLI Corp. (NYSE:RLI) core business of Casualty, Property, and Surety has seen strong growth on the back of increased premiums from commercial excess and personal umbrella due to both rate hikes and increased distribution.

The Surety division has been successful thus far because of the quality of its offerings, the expansion of its existing clientele, and the creation of bonds for new businesses.
