The cloud-based platform supports the collaboration process for MSIG's global and local teams, their network partners, brokers and agents along the steps of structuring programmes, exposure management, local policy request and issuance as well as a premium collection.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with MSIG and to help advance the way they provide their customers with international programme solutions," said Andreas Berger, CEO Swiss Re Corporate Solutions. "By providing our platform to MSIG, we extend the market for this solution to other carriers and help them to improve collaboration, transparency, efficiency and service quality."

Tamaki Kawate, director, senior executive officer at Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance Company, added: "Swiss Re's PULSE platform will significantly ease cooperation among the global group entities to better serve our multinational client base."

MSIG will be the first commercial insurer to be licensed to use the PULSE platform on a standalone SaaS basis. The platform will be rolled out in phases with MSIG's operations in Germany and France starting to use the system from January 2022, to collaborate digitally with its network of affiliated servicing carriers.
