Great American Insurance Group is working with another party to launch a national coverage program for repair shops in the U.S. focused on antique and classic car restoration. Generali’s Global Assistance Travel Insurance arm launched a new eClaims Portal for its partner JustFly, a value-minded airline ticket aggregator website. XL Catlin is backing an effort by a nonpartisan policy research center to develop a predictive mapping model that helps identify developing coastal nations most at risk from climate change.
Great American Insurance Group along with Grundy Insurance launched a new national program focused on coverage for antique and classic car restoration and repair shops across the United States.
The new program is out of Great American’s Alternative Markets Division, underwritten by Grundy and based out of Horsham, Pa.
Coverage offerings within the car restoration program include property, general liability, automobile and garage keepers.
Great American’s Alternative Markets Division offers agents and clients access to risk-sharing and traditional program insurance options for both specialty niche programs as well as generalist businesses. The division’s captive capabilities include agency, association and group captives.
Generali’s Global Assistance Travel Insurance arm launched a new eClaims Portal for its partner JustFly, a value-minded airline ticket aggregator website.
The eClaims Portal provides JustFly customers with a more efficient method to navigate the claims process. The portal lets customers download their description of coverage or policy, start a new claim, add information to an existing claim, and track the status of their claims online. Additionally, the portal offers a robust FAQ section, as well as step-by-step instructions on materials needed and how to submit a claim.
Generali’s eClaims Portal is designed to help the customer conveniently submit claims and access their claims record 24/7 from any device with an Internet browser. In the early weeks of JustFly customers’ usage of eClaims, 33 percent of all claims received have been via the eClaims Portal, the companies said. Given this quick adoption of eClaims, Generali anticipates that the majority of claims will be electronically submitted within weeks, highlighting the website’s ease of use and customer preference for digital experiences.
XL Catlin is backing an effort by The Stimpson Center’s Environmental Security program to develop a predictive mapping model that helps identify developing coastal nations most at risk from climate change.
The Stimpson Center is a nonpartisan policy research center.
The model is designed to better predict the hazards and identify where resilience measures should be implemented in regions most vulnerable to climate changes. It will examine social, environmental and economic conditions in a region and identify nations most at risk of conflict and insecurity due to climate change.
Stimpson’s Environmental Security program was to prevent the project at the Ocean Risk Summit in Bermuda.
