IFB members work together to identify cross-industry fraud patterns

Haven Insurance has become the latest member to join the Insurance Fraud Bureau (IFB).

The Gibraltar-based insurer joins the industry’s collective fight against insurance fraud.

IFB director Ben Fletcher said: “It’s fantastic to have Haven on board and contributing to the collective fight against insurance fraud.

“Detecting and disrupting fraud relies on access to good quality information and the IFB’s position at the heart of the issue, with unrivalled access to industry, law enforcement and other regulatory data, is further strengthened with Haven’s contribution.”

Haven specialises in products for public and private hire insurance, as well as fleet, motor trade, minibus, commercial vehicle and non-standard motor.

Haven Insurance managing director Chris Lathey said: “Haven has always taken a robust stance in protecting our customers from fraud.

“We are continually looking to enhance our fraud detection and prevention capabilities to deliver the best service and lowest prices for our customers. We look forward to working with the IFB in our respective efforts to combat and disrupt organised fraud.”

The IFB works with 98% of personal lines motor insurers and says it is talking with others that it does not have a formal relationship with.
