Healix Insurance Services were delighted to win the award for Best Insurance Intermediary at the recent International Travel and Health Insurance Journal (ITIJ) Awards in Venice.
Phil Denman, Managing Director of Healix Insurance Services commented, “Over the past 12 months we have focused on expanding our repertoire from straightforward domestic travel placement to a range of international travel and healthcare insurance/reinsurance products on both an open market and fully underwritten basis.
“We have strategically positioned ourselves to explore healthcare risk from every angle and we believe this win demonstrates the progress we’ve made on our journey from travel insurance broking to global health insurance provision. The key for us was to take advantage of the opportunities vertically within our existing supply chain as well as discovering new products.”
Developments over the last 12 months have seen Healix Insurance Services expand its business as a leading wholesale broker placing over £35m GWP of travel insurance, to also becoming an approved Coverholder at Lloyds of London with an underwritten health portfolio of £2.75m GWP; providing dental insurance for customers of the retailer Boots UK – the foremost dental retail scheme in the UK; creating a global reinsurance treaty for impaired travel risks – currently utilised by three global travel insurers with portfolios of over £500m GWP; and providing clients with a new range of value added data services via a class leading data warehouse with bespoke, intuitive data mining tools.
The panel of judges for the ITIJ Awards commented that “The number of initiatives undertaken by Healix Insurance Services in 2014 showed imagination and indeed courage and the transformation from a travel broker to a global insurance provider in such a short time is quite remarkable.”
Jess Tubb, Director of Healix Insurance Services explained, “We adopt a consultative approach with our clients, ensuring we fully understand their needs before delivering the exact solutions they require. We only approach insurers with highly-qualified business propositions and each opportunity is closely managed to meet exacting deadlines, with commercial terms being constantly analysed, compared and communicated at all times.”
