Insurance Without Borders

The Hartford is enhancing its multinational capabilities with the launch of The Hartford Global Insurer Network, a directly-managed network of insurer partners. Through the new network, which will comprise more than 80 local and regional insurers, The Hartford will offer insurance coverage for US companies in more than 200 countries through local and regional partners, while servicing local US policies for clients of its strategic partners.

To support the network, The Hartford has developed a “cutting-edge, cloud-based network management and engagement platform,” which will allow real-time collaboration among local partner offices in the network to track and service policies. The platform will provide a view into the underwriting, instruction issuance, claims information, account information, as well as tracking of key performance indicators by program, country and partner. The platform will be available for network partners on April 1 and will be available for customers and brokers later this year.

One partner highlighted in the announcement is Aviva, which will service the needs of The Hartford’s customers operating in the U.K. and Ireland. “Like Aviva, The Hartford has more than 200 years of history and shares similar values, making them the ideal partner as we embark on our next phase of growth. The Hartford will provide Aviva’s clients with a comprehensive insurance solution in the U.S. – and we look forward to servicing the needs of their customers in the U.K. and Ireland.” – President & CEO of Aviva Canada and of Aviva Global Corporate & Specialty, Colm Holmes.

“For a U.S. company, doing business globally can present a variety of new risks and having the right protection in place to operate in other countries is essential. We are pleased to expand our network of global partners to continue to provide the insurance solutions our customers need around the world and the excellent service they have come to expect.” – Head of Multinational insurance at The Hartford, Alfred Bergbauer.
