Whitespace, the fully digital e-trading platform for brokers and insurers, today announces its partnership with GuideOne National on its new entirely digitalised energy MGU, Career General Agency (CGA).
A first of its kind, CGA will accept risks exclusively via the Whitespace Platform through a wholly digitised underwriting process. Based in West Des Moines, Iowa, CGA will underwrite property insurance for global energy risks, both renewable and traditional, on behalf of multi-national (re)insurance organisations, launching on 1st November.
Whitespace Chief Platform Officer, Marcus Broome, said: “We are thrilled GuideOne National has chosen the Whitespace Platform as the sole method of risk placement for its unique energy MGU. The independent, auditable digital process that we offer has already proven to be invaluable for the GuideOne National team and we are proud to continue to support them in this exciting undertaking.”
Mark Groenheide, Senior Vice President, Specialty at GuideOne National said: “The Whitespace Platform is the biggest efficiency gain in (re)insurance since email. We are harnessing this tool to enable underwriters to continue to do their jobs more effectively, while still retaining the fundamental human element that is imperative to the industry. Due to the extremely complex risks involved within energy underwriting, it’s crucial to have a clear and precise audit trail. This platform provides a level of transparency never before available in this space, and we know that will benefit underwriters, brokers and clients alike.”
