With the London Market Group’s (LMG) Delegated Authority: Submission, Access and Transformation Solution (DA SATS) set to go live this week, market uptake from brokers and underwriters has reportedly been strong.
DA SATS is powered by Tide from Charles Taylor Insurtech and provides a central service to standardise the collection, validation, processing and supply of delegated authority data across the market.
At launch, 50% of the underwriting and broking businesses that focus on delegated authority business had signed up for the service, with four of the five largest managing agents on board.
LMG says data will be flowing through the platform from go-live and this widespread market adoption will enable a quick and convenient submission of risk, premium and claims data in the London Market.
“We are delighted to be launching this service to capture the right information at the right time to make underwriting and claims processing as efficient as possible for everyone in the value chain,” said Ian Fantozzi, Chief Operating Officer at Beazley and Market Sponsor for the Delegated Authority Solution.
“This will help brokers and underwriters to attract coverholders to London and means that coverholders and TPAs will only have to send data once.”
“By uploading data directly into a secure central platform, coverholders will no longer need to email unsecured spreadsheets, all of which will reduce cost, help protect our customers’ data and increase efficiency by eliminating effort and duplication,” Fantozzi added.
“We are pleased that so many market participants have already signed up for the service. DA SATS delivers economies of scale and a simplicity of process, these are the benefits of widespread adoption of a single solution.”
