By Megha Bhattacharya
Aon and insurance company Chubb have announced the launch of a new digital platform in France for small and medium-sized businesses. The collaboration is expected to enable small businesses to understand coverage options and buy insurance online.
According to Aon, its new platform (powered by CoverWallet), offers around 10 insurance products from Chubb and reduces time to receive insurance.
“Simplifying the insurance journey and helping our clients focus on their core business is at the heart of our mission with this new offering, which is a major step ahead for small and medium-sized businesses,” said Antoine Lamy-Rested, Chief Commercial Officer, Aon France. “By leveraging our internal digital strengths and our expertise in Commercial Risk, we offer our clients quick and easy access to high-performance insurance products that meet their needs.”
CoverWallet’s platform enables businesses to get quotes for multiple products, compare coverage details, pay with a credit card or bank account, download their proof coverage and speak with an insurance specialist if they have any questions throughout the process.
“We are proud to launch this platform in France. Diversifying our distribution channels is a core component of our digital ambition,” said Santiago Sanchez, Head of Digital, Europe, Chubb. “The combination of our product range, underwriting expertise, claims service and our ability to quickly integrate our offerings ideally positions Chubb to meet the needs of small commercial enterprises in France through this collaboration with Aon and CoverWallet.”
CoverWallet was acquired by Aon in January 2020. The platform is available across three continents with a planned expansion in 2021.
“By bringing together Aon’s insurance expertise, Chubb’s insurance products, and CoverWallet’s technology and operating model, we have created a unique offering that delivers the best of all worlds for small businesses,” said Elena Gonzalez-Blanco, General Manager of Europe at CoverWallet. “As a part of Aon, we are able to scale our business globally to bring our digital capabilities to clients around the world at an accelerated pace.”
