Zurich simplifies broker platform
Zurich has revamped its Z.Stream trading platform following feedback from brokers seeking property, liability and fleet motor covers.
“It’s about making ourselves easy to work with, and feedback from brokers says they want clarity about how to best access Zurich’s range of propositions,” Head of Commercial Insurance Giles Crowley said.
“Instead of going to three different places to access our property, liability and fleet motor offerings, brokers now only go to two.”
The changes mean products that underpinned the ZCI suite of offerings have been repointed.
Meanwhile, Zurich has this month stopped writing new policies for chauffeur vehicles, and will no longer renew the cover from September.
“Our chauffeur portfolio was sub-scale and was diverting attention and underwriting capability from lines where we know we can compete strongly for market leadership,” Mr Crowley said.
“To be credible in the market, it’s important to be clear and consistent about your appetite and the segments you want to serve, and this decision is entirely aligned to that.”
