NTI Marine Insurance plans following Vero and CGU Insurance Transfer | QBE Truck Insurance

NTI Transport and Truck Insurance has revealed its plans following the recent launch of its marine insurance practice, as reported in our Insurance News last week. This follows other announcements from QBE Truck Insurance and QBE Marine Insurance also.

The launch will see Vero and CGU transfer its marine insurance portfolios to NTI. The specialist will then create Marine Protect: Powered by NTI, a marine insurance solution that covers marine cargo, liability and hull.

Tony Clark, CEO of NTI, said that the firm will look to innovate in its new line of business to help transport insurance brokers place risk more easily.

The firm is looking to develop online marine insurance transactional services for insurance brokers and will look to work with the broker market proactively in the claims space.

Clark noted that, as marine insurance coverage is often international business, NTI will look to utilise experts joining the firm from both CGU and Vero to work with brokers in the market.

 “We have the networks around Australia to be able to deal with any circumstance,” Clark told Insurance Business.

“I know a lot of this cargo will go overseas and that is where we use the experts in place. We have over 50 people coming across from our shareholders who have done nothing but be experts in marine insurance. The last thing that we will do is diminish that expert knowledge in the marketplace.”

With staff joining the business, Clark said that brokers will be dealing with the same people and the same systems, although over time the marine practice will move over to the NTI system.

“The idea is that the brokers will not see any difference,” Clark continued.

“What we will be doing is working with the experts we are bringing over to say ‘what will this look like in the future’ and ‘how can we improve the experience that brokers’ customers have both from a policy and claims perspective’.”
