We help our clients design technology strategies and find and implement new technology partners.

Where we help

Technology is increasingly the beating heart of any insurance company. Whether you are a high-volume personal lines insurer or a high-touch corporate insurer, technology will be critical to success over the next decade.

We help clients design technology strategies and select new technology partners quickly and with confidence. We have an in-depth knowledge of the insurance technology vendor market spanning traditional and InsurTech vendors. Our insight is knowledge supported by our team of specialists and Magellan, our technology navigator that contains our proprietary database of over 2,000 vendors.

Examples of our work

We helped a European insurer create a technology strategy, design a technology architecture and select new systems to support digital distribution and automation

We helped a UK insurer select a new insurance system to support digital customer engagement and straight through processing

We helped a London Market syndicate select a new broker portal to improve speed to market, reduce cost and drive growth
