Nexus catches Sabrefish for multi channel insurance solution

23 March 2012

Sabrefish, specialists in delivering eInsurance solutions, today announced that Nexus Underwriting Management Ltd (Nexus) has chosen them to deliver an insurance underwriting solution.

After acquiring Novae’s Regional Financial Lines business, Nexus formed a new Managing General Agency (MGA) called Nexus Professional Risks Ltd (NPR) and approached Sabrefish to supply a new system to service and grow the business.  Sabrefish will configure and implement RiskWrite to provide NPR with a full insurance underwriting solution, including policy administration and broker portal. 

Colin Thompson, Nexus Group CEO said “We were looking for an affordable system that would not only be up and running quickly but had the necessary functions to drive operational efficiency. Sabrefish will implement the new system, including migrating data, in less than a two months.  A fast implementation is critical to the success of our acquisition.” 

He continued, “RiskWrite is a popular choice with our underwriters because they are confident in its ability to support our business needs.  It will allow us to respond quickly to rate and market changes and to communicate with agents and brokers across all our channels.  We are also considering using it within the rest of the Nexus business”.

Jon Garaway, Sabrefish Chief Operating Officer said “We are delighted that Nexus have chosen Sabrefish and RiskWrite to support the launch and growth of their new MGA.  RiskWrite supports both the traditional insurance business functions and is specifically designed for web access.  This allows our clients to embrace new opportunities in today’s market, including rapidly launching new products, supporting a variety of channels to market and international growth.”

Sabrefish’s other customers in the Insurance sector include Novae, Dual, Swiss Re and WR Berkley.
