Pulse Insurance has become a member of GRiD, the industry body for the group risk protection sector.
Pulse mainly offers life, travel, and other specialist insurance for those with complex needs. In addition, it helps small- to medium-sized business clients in accessing tailored group risk cover.
Pulse has joined GRiD to display its commitment to the highest standards and innovation to support clients.
Furthermore, the firm aims to improve access to insurance for all companies no matter the needs of staff.
Paul Sandilands, chair of Pulse Insurance said: “We’ve made the decision to join GRiD at this time because we want to be part of a collaborative approach. The group risk insurance industry is becoming increasingly agile and innovative which is enabling more companies to obtain appropriate cover for their staff but there is still more that can be done. This is particularly so in promoting the availability of cover for businesses that have staff in Europe with the UK leaving the EU, which presents an opportunity. Via GRiD, we look forward to working together with some of the industry’s leading figures to support our own clients and the SME community as a whole.”
Steve Bridger, chair of GRiD said: “Pulse Insurance’s contribution will be hugely welcomed as we look to create wider awareness of the benefits of group risk insurance, particularly among smaller businesses. Pulse has at-the-coal-face experience of discussing insurance issues with particular audiences and this will also help inform the group.”
It is not the only firm covering various forms of risk. Specialist insurer Beazley has launched Virtual Care in Canada to offer insurance cover against risks linked to technology-enabled healthcare and lifestyle management services.
The policy covers medical malpractice and professional indemnity, tech and media liability, public and products liability.
In addition, cyber coverage and services will be covered through Beazley Breach Response Services.
Mitigation costs, abuse and harassment liability, medical regulatory costs, and claims due to loss of documents or reputational damage costs as well as environmental liability costs are included in the optional extensions offered by the company.
