The health-tech offering will form part of Chubb’s broader life sciences industry practice and joins other industry practices in the UK such as real estate, technology and media, and climate tech. 

Chubb head of industry practices for EMEA Louise Joyce will oversee the health-tech industry practice.  

The insurer’s life science practice leader for UK & Ireland Victoria D’Silva will head a bespoke underwriting team dedicated to this new practice. 

Joyce said: “We have been providing coverage for health-tech clients for many years. Our new offering has been designed specifically to meet the needs of companies operating in this fast-moving sector and provides a range of cover in one flexible package that can be arranged online in just a few clicks through Chubb Ignite.” 

Separately, in the US, Chubb has introduced a new self-service flood insurance system to provide agents with quicker access to flood quotes.  

It will be available across all US states where Chubb offers flood insurance.  

This service allows agents and brokers to assist clients in enhancing their protection against flood risks, offering customised limits up to $15m and starting at as low as $500 per year.
