CLAIMS, RISK MANAGEMENT
Shift Technology | March 16, 2023
Shift Technology, a leading provider of AI-driven solutions for the insurance industry, announced on March 15, 2023, that General Insurance Association of Singapore (GIA) would be expanding its use of Shift Claims Fraud Detection to assist its member insurers in detecting travel insurance fraud.
This strategic expansion is a testament to the success of General Insurance Association of Singapore's (GIA) Fraud Management System (FMS). This move comes at an opportune time, with global travel gradually returning to pre-pandemic levels. Shift and GIA have been working together since 2017 to combat insurance fraud. Initially, the collaboration involved the use of Shift Claims Fraud Detection to identify suspicious motor and travel insurance claims. However, due to the significant success achieved in both areas, the solution's use has been expanded to include the detection of various types of travel insurance fraud.
Kai Weng Ho, Chief Executive of GIA, stated, "Recent significant successes in insurance fraud detection using FMS resulted in the conviction of multiple insurance fraudsters. This planned expansion allows us to maximize the potential of the travel module and comes at an opportune time of rising global travel."
He added, "Our collaboration with Shift gives us an important way to detect and manage fraudulent claims at scale. It also augments our sector's existing fraud detection and management efforts."

Jeremy Jawish, CEO and Co-Founder of Shift Technology, remarked, "Fraud is not simply a problem for individual insurers, but rather a challenge for the entire insurance industry, which is why industry-level solutions like ours are so impactful."
He added, "Bad actors do not limit themselves to a single target, especially in the case of organized fraud networks. By providing associations like the GIA with a comprehensive view of what's happening with claims across their membership, fraud detection and mitigation activities are scaled exponentially, to the benefit of all."

Axis Launches | January 04, 2023
AXIS Capital Holdings Limited has announced the implementation of a Specialty Package Policy for manufacturers through its Environmental business unit. The SPPm policy protects manufacturers against a wide range of general and environmental liability risks in a single insurance package.
Manufacturing, distribution, warehousing, and processing businesses, as well as waste storage, treatment, and disposal facilities, are all covered by SPPm. The new policy is accessible to US-based manufacturing and distribution enterprises with up to $2 billion in revenue.
According to AXIS, this new environmental product is just one element of its larger initiative to bring more advanced capabilities and fresh ideas to the niche market. As a result of the complexity of the risks they confront, manufacturers and wholesalers require insurance policies of an equally high level of sophistication.
SPPm offers ISO-based CGL, product and product pollution liability, non-owned site pollution liability, transportation pollution, premises pollution liability, employee benefits administration, emergency response expense coverage, and product withdrawal expense.
As general liability and environmental risks become more linked, AXIS says it's no longer prudent to examine them separately. With SPPm, the company can provide its partners with an integrated solution to managing complicated risk and coverage in a simple, smooth, and cost-effective way.
