This is a key milestone in building the Future at Lloyd’s, which will see the insurance marketplace transformed from a largely paper-based, analogue set of processes to one that is data-focused, automated, and cost-efficient.
This will be the first time, in over 20 years that the technology infrastructure underpinning the London market will be completely transformed. The rebuild of the digital ‘engine room’ that powers the Lloyd’s and London market is predicated on three key changes:
John Neal, CEO of Lloyd’s said: “In the challenging hybrid working environment forced upon businesses by COVID-19, the early efforts of the Lloyd’s and London market to modernise activities have been strongly demonstrated by the ability to operate digitally and remotely almost seamlessly, ensuring customers’ insurance needs are met and their claims are paid. Now, with the respective commitments of DXC, Lloyd’s and the entire London market, we have the capabilities to transition to a single platform solution that will provide automated processing and accounting for the market, a substantial reduction in operating costs, and offer customers a much faster, better service.”
Mike Salvino, President and CEO, DXC Technology said: “This new digital platform will fundamentally change the operating model of the whole London market. We are proud that DXC has been entrusted with a transformation of such unprecedented scale and importance. It’s the definition of ‘mission critical’ and is an opportunity for us to apply our deep industry and technology expertise.”
Dave Matcham, CEO of the IUA, said: “As an association, IUA and its members understand that digital transformation is imperative to their businesses and to remaining competitive in the London market. The new joint venture agreement reinforces the commitment of the company market, DXC and Lloyd’s to work together on such an important modernising agenda for central services.”
Sheila Cameron, CEO of the LMA, said: “This is a significant step on the journey to digitise the Lloyd’s and London market. We look forward to working with our Managing Agent members, DXC, Lloyd’s and the wider London market, as we build a faster and more cost-efficient, data driven future for the market and its customers.”
