The partnership aims to enable network members to ‘differentiate themselves from the competition’

GRP-owned Hedron Network has partnered with Qlaims to offer its brokers a new claims and risk management solution.

Qlaims is the first risk management partner to be confirmed since Global Risk Partners (GRP) completed its acquisition of Marsh’s UK Networks business this month. 

Following this, GRP’s networks division was brought together under a single proposition to form Hedron Network. 

Under the new arrangement, Hedron Network partner brokers can access bespoke rates for schemes and portfolios with embedded wordings.

Furthermore, the Qlaims Insurance standard policy will be available via Acturis or Qlaims’s quote-and-bind portal U-Quote.

Partner brokers will also be able to access Qlaims Trak – a portal that allows brokers and their clients to see the status and correspondence of claims at any time.

Qlaims’s chief commercial officer Liz Latter said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Hedron Network to assist their brokers.

”Our mission is to improve [the] customer claims experience and our services will complement and extend the capabilities of members.

“The last year has shown the power that virtual claim assessments can make in supporting claims. Within minutes of a claim being reported, our Qlaims team have and will be working on the client’s and broker’s behalf to start triage and get the claim moving.

“We’re proud to be part of [the] new Hedron Network proposition and look forward to working with the brokers and Hedron team.”

Mike Rogers, markets director at Hedron Network, added: “We have an agreement in place with Qlaims that supports our broker proposition.

”We anticipate that the mix of technology and loss recovery insurance offered by Qlaims will be a major growth area for our members, enabling them to differentiate themselves from the competition.”

Qlaims is the holding company for QlaimsTech and Qlaims Insurance. It was founded by Malcolm Harvey in 2017.

Hedron Network, part of GRP, is one of the UK’s largest insurance broker networks. It has over 250 broker members and a further 400 trading partners.
