GuideOne National has joined the Whitespace Platform to strengthen its connections with the London market.
This platform allows brokers and underwriters to offer, negotiate, place and bind insurance and reinsurance contracts with each other, using a digital platform.
The company intends to utilise the platform to add value to its customer relationship by enabling interactions at any time and from anywhere.
GuideOne National Specialty Senior vice-president Mark Groenheide said: “Working with Whitespace was an easy decision for us to make. This platform keeps us connected to the historic London market and the vitally important relationships we have there. It also brings consistency, a full audit trail, and adds clarity and benefit to the entire insurance trading process.”
Whitespace Chief Platform Officer Marcus Broome said: “With more than 90 brokers and carriers in London now doing business through our platform, Whitespace is well placed to offer more efficient access to the world’s leading wholesale insurance and reinsurance market.
“We are delighted that GuideOne National is our first overseas carrier and are looking forward to working closely with Mark and his team to help them grow their use of Whitespace across the business.”
