Ben Fletcher, IFB

The Insurance Fraud Bureau (IFB) is planning to hold a round table with aggregators next month to talk about how they can work together in the fight against insurance fraud.

IFB director Ben Fletcher told Insurance Times: “Theoretically aggregators could join the IFB if they wanted to. There is no reason why they can’t. We have been talking to them for a period of time.

“Aggregators hold a wealth of data. Technologically they have significant capability and the industry recognises that aggregators will be able to play a role in helping us to fight fraud in a number of ways and that is what we are looking at.”
