Zurich to digitalise international programmes business

Zurich Insurance Group has announced plans to digitalise its international programmes business with the goal of providing stakeholders with a more efficient and sustainable service across insurance programme management, binding and renewals, and claims management.

Zurich will connect with partners either through its customer and broker portal, My Zurich, or via API to company-specific risk management systems.

“Recent events such as the global pandemic, the crisis in Ukraine, supply chain-related issues and the ever-present risks of climate change are strong reminders of how complex and challenging the global risk landscape is. Today, businesses and risk managers need to be able to navigate multiple risks at the same time,” said Marcel Weiss, global head of international programmes.

Vinicio Cellerini, global head of customer and distribution Management, added: “We have listened to our customers who want access to relevant data in an easy and seamless manner. In this highly complex and evolving environment it is more important than ever that businesses have reliable, up-to-date policy and risk data available at their fingertips. Digitalising Zurich’s International Programs business will help our customers to better prevent, mitigate and manage adverse, disruptive events.”
