By now many of you would have read the announcement from QBE last week which outlined plans for the migration of their SME Construction and Engineering products to 360’s online underwriting platform.
The goal was to provide a fast and efficient way for brokers to access these products while still being able to utilise QBE’s underwriting team for complex and large business.
Brokers will be able to access the complete suite of QBE’s construction and engineering products including annual, single and owner builder construction along with the machinery and electronic equipment policies.
The announcement was another milestone day for the team at 360 with the partnership with QBE reflecting the capability we have developed in the SME segment of this market.
An excerpt from the QBE announcement from Dale Gleeson, the National Manager Construction and Engineering, follows ;
