Insource

We recognise that insurers, underwriters, MGA's, retail banks, suppliers and service providers required a greater influence on some of their outsourcing arrangements.

Audit

  • Our ethos is one of continuous improvement and identifying areas that ensure clients and their partners are fully aligned and really effectively working together. 
  • Independent - an independent expert view that gives both parties an impartial overview of key issues is a powerful tool in the current market. We are proud of our independence and previous clients and their partners have benefited from this. 
  • Pragmatic and commercial - Audits and reviews have to be conducted by experts. Not everyone can be an effective auditor - the benefit of hindsight can often creep in. We are pragmatic in our approach and have a sound commercial view. 
  • All our auditors are experienced. Considerable claims experience coupled with functional responsibilities e.g. operational management;supply chain; financial and business analysis sits within the team. Many have worked both for general insurers and the supply chain - they have seen both sides of the fence. 
  • Audit tools we have developed and continue to develop - mirror Lloyds approved and have been enhanced. 
  • Data gained from multiple engagements over the years enable us to truly benchmark performance, 
  • Our Audits are not tick-box exercises: Antagonistic: A review that occurs and gets forgotten until next year, they are tools to be used to drive improvement. 

Training

  • We provide a range of claims technical and functional training to the industry in the UK. Our training encompasses formal class room training; desk side training; mentoring and coaching as well as a full digital capability. 
  • We have adopted a highly pragmatic approach with the teams reputation being built on really addressing the practical aspects of claims handling regardless of class of business. We have focused on this as invariably clients are asking us to up-skill the middle ground who have never in many cases handled a claim from end to end in their careers. These handlers need not just technical training but also their confidence built to apply that knowledge correctly.
