Charles Taylor, the leading provider of services and technology solutions to the global insurance market, today launches Charles Taylor Specialist Investigation Services (SIS), to enable our clients to deliver an intelligence-led approach to counter fraud, manage risk and reduce their exposures.
As a multi-sector investigation division, it draws on the Group’s decades of experience in handling complex technical cases, including fraud risks, all over the world, ranging from a multi-million-pound art theft to open source and social media profiling, across all lines of business. It will utilise bespoke, market-leading technology through Charles Taylor InsureTech, to develop innovative counter fraud identification and investigation tools.
The new division will be led by the recently appointed Global Head of Fraud, Bobby Gracey.
He said “As the impact of Covid-19 is felt across the world, the conditions are there for an increase in both organised and opportunistic fraud. Charles Taylor has unrivalled expertise in claims across multiple markets and a leading technology arm underpinning this, which is a great combination for a new specialist counter fraud service. We are bringing the best of IT & IQ together to enable our clients to outperform, defeat the fraudsters and reduce the fraud expenses that impact the balance sheet of every insurer. We know that no two counter fraud philosophies are the same, which is why we work collaboratively with clients to build tailored claims fraud responses.”
