Chubb Ignite is quick and easy to use and allows brokers to quote specialist insurance online and be bound by Chubb within minutes, with instant documentation available online or via email. The tool is backed up by a team of experienced local underwriters who are available to answer queries and provide support.

Other key benefits include:

• Online renewal management.
• Electronic policy documents and debit notes issued immediately.

The product suite available on the platform will be expanded over time and the first product made available is Chubb’s Elite V Directors & Officers Insurance. Brokers will benefit from access to Chubb’s full Elite V policy wording, which is one of the widest in the market and comprises coverage features such as; preservation of the side A limit, securities claims and pre-investigation cover. In addition, extensions are offered for cyber privacy and confidentiality, environmental violation and mitigation of loss.

Gary Jack, Country President for Chubb Insurance South Africa said:

“Small and medium-sized enterprises make up approximately 91% of the formal business sector in South Africa, with economic output accounting for about 34% of GDP. Chubb Ignite reflects our commitment to invest in digital innovation, allowing brokers to provide the same comprehensive cover and high quality service enjoyed by larger companies to small and medium sized commercial clients.”
