The insurtech approached Peach Pi about the solution as the niche insurer has a ’real understanding’ of the health and wellbeing sector

Peach Pi has partnered with insurtech MGA Tapoly on a bespoke insurance offering for freelancers and micro SMEs in the health and wellbeing sector.

The flexible product includes cover for professional indemnity, public liability and treatment risk, with the option to include employers’ liability.

Head of distribution at niche insurer Peach Pi, Allison Hughes, said: “We established Peach Pi to work collaboratively with like-minded insurance professionals. We are therefore delighted to be partnering with Tapoly to deliver a bespoke product that will meet the unique requirements of this specific set of community-based professionals.

“Our in-house team of legally qualified claims experts will work closely with Tapoly to deliver their customers the level of service they deserve to protect and empower their business ambition.”

This follows Peach Pi unveiling its broker etrade platform in March, designed to better support community businesses. 

Customer specific needs

The new product is available online via Tapoly’s technology platform.

Speaking about the partnership, Janthana Kaenprakhamroy, Tapoly’s founder and chief executive, said: “We are constantly monitoring the needs of our customers to ensure that we continue to provide new and innovative flexible commercial insurance products.”

The product also enables customers to access Peach Pi’s claims service, which incorporates the firm’s one hundred years of experience insuring community-based pharmacy businesses.

When co-creating and supporting schemes, Peach Pi can adapt its claims solution to best reflect the scheme’s needs.

Kaenprakhamroy continued: “We identified a number of professions within the health and wellbeing sector [that] would value the option to purchase cover online – from art therapists to Zumba instructors – and approached Peach Pi to develop a solution, as they have a real understanding both of the health and wellbeing sector and of our customers’ specific needs.”
