ECIC and Acturis to deliver online tradesman products

The Electrical Contractors' Insurance Company (ECIC) has teamed up with Acturis, the specialist insurance technology company, to deliver a range of online tradesman products, both broker-facing and direct.

The ECIC provides specialist insurances for electrical contractors and other trades, and the new auto-rated facility will support the product range for this existing client base.

Roger Brown, managing director of ECIC, said: "Many ECA members have told us that they would like to be able to buy an auto-rated insurance package online – whether through their broker or direct. Working with Acturis will give us the capability to deliver such a product."

Theo Duchen, co-CEO at Acturis, said: "We are delighted to be working with the team at Electrical Contractors’ Insurance company, and we expect to be able to deliver a whole new generation of products for their client base, helping them to better serve the large and specialist UK tradesman insurance marketplace."
