About Easy Broking Online Ltd

Objective:


The principal objective of the Company is to support independent intermediaries throughout the UK by providing them with commercial insurance through a web-based trading platform – whether the intermediary is in the office, on the road or on the insured’s premises.

Constitution:


Established in 2007 in the City of London, Easy Broking Online Ltd. is one of a few underwriting agencies that conducts and operates its business through an electronic trading platform that is fully supported by experienced underwriters. The corporate and underwriting management of the Company are highly experienced and wellknown in the London and provincial insurance markets. They are supported in turn by internal and external shareholders who all have considerable experience in the insurance sector.

Trading platform:


The single trading platform allows access to all Insurers products, uses modern technology and incorporates all of the underwriting reference points for SME business previously experienced by the Company’s underwriters during recent years. This will enable the user – in real time – to manage the quotation, underwriting, policy administration and documentation, mid-term adjustments, accounting and claims of their client.

At the same time, it allows the Company to maintain electronically all of the intermediary’s insurance transactions - thus creating an automated audit trail of these transactions.

The trading platform transacts business in “real time” and in maintaining Compliance it provides Contract Certainty to the intermediary and the insured.

Underwriters:


Currently supporting the trading platform are Andrew Chisnall, Jeremy Lewis and David Miles who have between them achieved more than fifty years underwriting experience in the SME class of insurance. They represent the human element support to the underwriting and claims ability of the trading platform. In this capacity they combine the disciplines of the trading platform with the experience of underwriters who are readily available to assist with technical issues and also maintain the Company’s high levels of service.

Underwriting capacity:


Easy Broking Online Ltd. distributes its insurance products electronically by means of its trading platforms on behalf of its chosen Insurers in the Lloyd’s and Company market.

Service levels:


The Company’s stated objective is to respond to all referrals on the trading platform and other technical underwriting matters within 24 hours. In practice and to date, the response to intermediary enquiries has been immediate or within three to four hours. For extremely urgent or important referrals intermediaries are welcome to telephone the office to speak with an underwriter where it is expected that the matter would be dealt with within a few minutes.

The appointed claims administrators have immediate access to the trading platform for policy details and in this way can operate independently to investigate and settle claims within the authority granted to them by the capacity provider. With a 52/24/7 claims notification line either the insured or the intermediary can notify a claim at any time.
