Covéa Insurance enhances its small business offering on Acturis

7th September 2015

In the first of a series of initiatives that will see the transformation of its e-trading Small Business proposition, Covéa Insurance has launched two new property products on the Acturis software platform, complemented by a guaranteed 30 minute referral service from the newly established Small Business Trading team.

The new products have been designed for Landlords with Residential and small Commercial properties and are complementary to Covéa Insurance’s successful Real Estate product for larger Commercial Property Owners, traded through its regional offices. Like Real Estate, the new Landlords products feature a range of enhancements and additional benefits to their predecessors.

Tim Grant, Senior Manager, Small Business explained:

“We’ve listened to what brokers want from an e-trading proposition and that’s why we’ve introduced the same trading commitment as our colleagues in Sterling. With the additional harnessing of technology, we aim to deliver brokers an exceptional referral experience to help them win business with optimum efficiency. This is the first step in the transformation of our e-trade Small Business offering over the next nine months, a transformation that will touch every part of our proposition.”

Exceptional service is at the heart of Covéa Insurance’s Small Business proposition, with the Institute of Customer Service accredited in-house claims fulfillment now supplemented by up-front trading capability. At the heart of this is the 30 minute commitment, guaranteeing brokers a quick and efficient referral service delivered by underwriters with the knowledge, attitude and empowerment to trade.

Tony Matthias, Small Business Underwriting Manager who leads the trading team added:

“Our new trading team is enthused and passionate about providing a level of service and referral response that will encourage brokers to make Covéa Insurance a preferred insurer. The team are determined to build positive relationships with brokers, by demonstrating a ‘can do, will do’ attitude.”
