Beazley has announced that its global digital trading division, Beazley Digital, is up and running. The new hub brings together underwriting, claims, technology and operational experts into one cross-functional team, to deliver seamless digital access and services to a range of high volume, lower premium products for its global broking partners.
Ian Fantozzi, CEO of Beazley Digital said: “With technology playing an increasingly important role in facilitating insurance placement and portfolio management we can now offer access to the digital distribution channels our broking partners want to use – portals, APIs, market hubs and email. Supported by the human experience and interaction that our brokers value so highly.
“We are not looking to simply ‘digitise’ legacy systems and continue traditional line-led underwriting; instead we have organised the team so that we can offer one Beazley point of contact to access multiple lines and digital services via a selection of digital channels.”
Beazley Digital’s core objectives are:
Brilliant basics – ensuring Beazley’s digital traded products use consistent technology to offer automated solutions that minimise response times and reduce referrals.
Meeting brokers where they want to be met – offering access to our products via the digital distribution channels that suit our brokers’ needs.
Easy access to specialists – supporting digital transactions with easy access to our experts, ensuring queries get to the right people first time.
Using data to drive insight – sharing data and insight with brokers to improve portfolio management.
Striving for better – listening and working in partnership with brokers and our ecosystem of technology partners to continually improve how we deliver our products and services.
