AXA Insurance has partnered with Lloyd’s market wholesale broker THB to underwrite its Fleet UK product.

Starting 1 January 2020, AXA Insurance will underwrite the Fleet UK after Zurich’s partnership with THB ends.

Fleet UK is offered through a network of nearly 600 brokers. The insurance plan clubs risk management services provided by THB’s Cardinus Risk Management with road safety telematics and fleet analysis offered by Drive.

Fleet UK managing director Glen McCully said: “Fleet UK remains a premier fleet product for risk-managed fleets of all sizes.

“With AXA as our new partner from 1 January and the full risk management backing of Cardinus and Driive, we’re excited that we can continue to offer this excellent product.

“Our new partnership with AXA gives us the opportunity to refresh our commitment to this quality motor fleet proposition for our brokers, with whom we have forged strong relationships over the years.”

AXA Insurance head of casualty insurance, fleet and motor trade Steve Browne stated: “The Fleet UK product, through its real-time service, offers the opportunity to discuss individual risks in detail and fits perfectly with our ‘payer to partner’ strategy, allowing us to bring our safety and risk management expertise to bear.”

Last month, AXA launched an online travel health calculator tool that enables travellers with pre-existing medical conditions to calculate their health insurance premiums.
