Normally unacceptable risks that are written as an ``accommodation' to an agent or broker who has an overall profitable relationship with the insurer. For example: a personal auto risk with a teenage driver of a sports car might be written if the other lines of insurance which it carries for the customer were profitable; or if the agency has had a good and profitable relationship with the insurer.
