Foresight Risk and Insurance Services (Foresight) has formed a partnership with QBE North America (QBE), a unit of Australia’s QBE Insurance Group.

Set up in 2020, US-based Foresight is engaged in offering workers’ compensation insurance, as well as proprietary safety technology and services to reduce claims.

Through the alliance, Foresight will be able to underwrite insurance on certain QBE entities’ paper.

Foresight currently distributes insurance through national commercial broker partners, with a focus on construction, manufacturing, and agriculture sectors where safety is crucial.

With QBE, Foresight said it will be able to pursue its goal of entering new markets and have the chance to expand into other industries in the upcoming year.

The workers’ compensation specialist added that its coaching services and exclusive digital risk management tool will still be available to policyholders.
