Welcome to Connect UW

We are a London-based (re)insurtech MGA and Lloyd’s Coverholder.

We are also the ‘architects’ of Connect Marketplace, the future of digital distribution, trading, and processing of (re)insurance in the Lloyd’s and London market. As a Lloyd’s recognized electronic placement system, our platform provides Lloyd’s Brokers and Coverholders, Managing Agents, London and global Company Markets with a versatile and powerful white labeled technology solution to enable them to produce, negotiate, bind, and process (re) insurance business seamlessly, at a fraction of the cost.

The platform is ‘community driven’, scalable, user friendly, and secure.

Our Blue Ocean Vision – creating a new market space

Our ultimate mission is to help our platform partners, whether they are Lloyd’s Brokers, Coverholders, or Managing Agents, create blue ocean distribution opportunities both in London and abroad, which they otherwise would not have seen in London, as well as reduce transactional costs dramatically to support the market’s vision.

As with all platforms, synergy and harmony are key components of success. Connect Marketplace’s distribution/marketing module creates the ‘virtual’ landscape to deliver Lloyd’s and London market capacity anywhere in the world. We know this from experience, because we have been doing it and growing it in Europe, and over 25 markets around the world through targeted distribution frameworks.

ConnectUW as a (re)insurtech incubator and ‘mini vc’

Last but not least, we also strategically invest in and develop technology based insurance distribution models that complement our cloud based underwriting systems. We offer our prospective partners capital, plug and play infrastructure and distribution opportunities. As well as operational resources from start to finish and we try to work as closely as possible with the insurtech community and other venture capital funds. We look to invest in early, or pre-series A insurtech focused startups in predominantly the UK, Europe, and North America.

In a digital (re)insurance era, we have committed to the market’s target operating model to negotiate, transact, and process Connect business electronically - come and join us!
