INSTANDA helps London Underwriters create new InsurTech, Bunch Insurance
HARTFORD, Conn., March 31, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- INSTANDA, the cloud-native insurance solutions provider, today announces that London Underwriters has successfully implemented INSTANDA’s technology to create a new InsurTech – Bunch Insurance.
Founded in 2010, London Underwriters is an insurance wholesale broker specializing in writing admitted and non-admitted business for independent retail agencies in 47 States. In July 2020, London Underwriters turned to INSTANDA for help to evolve its business strategy. As a traditional binding authority, it recognized that new InsurTech entrants were disrupting the way brokers were doing business. Rather than be removed from the distribution model, London Underwriters decided to augment its own processes by developing its very own InsurTech product without expensive systems implementations.
INSTANDA’s cloud native platform became the foundation of a mobile, flexible and malleable commercial insurance product – Bunch Insurance. As a new InsurTech program offering Commercial Property and General Liability coverages, the product is fully customizable and provides users with complete control of its development.
London Underwriters and Bunch Insurance CEO, Daniel Feigenbaum commented: “INSTANDA challenged our thinking of what we thought insurance was and could be. By being open minded, we have now created a minimum viable product that we can test and iterate on the fly – enabling a higher rate of success for our business. This is just the first of a ‘bunch’ of products we want to create for our consumers. We’re looking forward to partnering with INSTANDA on those future projects.”
INSTANDA’s low code platform enabled London Underwriters to combine different binding authorities, along with API friendly distribution partners, to create a single user experience. Bunch Insurance aims to tap into as much third-party data possible, which means less friction for the customer when applying for a quote. It also means more speed for agents and clients when quoting and binding policies.
Greg Murphy, Executive Vice President of INSTANDA North America, added: “London Underwriters is a prime example of a traditional insurance company that is willing to think and act differently. INSTANDA’s platform is agile, user friendly and easily adaptable to the needs of any insurance business. We’re excited to see how Bunch Insurance is received. We look forward to supporting London Underwriters to create sustained innovation in a complex market.”
The Beta version of Bunch Insurance was launched in September 2020 in the state of Texas. Bunch is now available in Arizona, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia.
Insurance is complex, but it does not have to be difficult. INSTANDA offers carriers and MGAs the possibility to break away from traditional ‘systems heavy’ product introductions. By rewriting the narrative on how to build, implement, and service products, INSTANDA’s Software-as-a-Service based digital insurance management platform is empowering insurers to thrive in a new generation of insurance. By putting control in the hands of insurers, creating customized products with speed and ease can now become the norm.
Headquartered in the UK, with offices across North America, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, INSTANDA has helped over 60 clients create over 2,800 insurance products across 13 countries. Join the INSTANDA movement, and visit https://instanda.com/us/ for more information.
