Beazley’s global digital division begins trading

Beazley’s new global digital trading division, Beazley Digital, is up and running as of this morning.

Bringing together underwriting, claims, technology and operational specialists into one cross-functional team, the new division promises to deliver “seamless digital access and services to a range of high volume, lower premium products”.

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.”
