The Berkley Canada Accident, Health and Travel team likes to do things differently. It is our team’s 20+ years of experience in insurance, working in a variety of roles such as broker, risk manager, claims, sales and product development, coupled with an entrepreneurial spirit that enables us to think outside the box and ensure we are not burdened with complex infrastructure and slow decision making.
We understand the challenges brokers face on a day-to-day basis. Through customized, robust and competitively priced products we help distributors grow their business. At Berkley, we have the flexibility to offer products through new channels and integrate with distributors’ systems.
Since inception, Berkley Accident, Health & Travel has developed and launched customized insurance programs within 60 days and is one of the few insurance providers that can customize products for each distribution partner.
Berkley Canada focuses on establishing strategic relationships with large insurance partners who can provide a significant portfolio. Berkley Canada offers underwriting capability for distributors with their own front-end sales and fulfillment functionality, whether for individual policy sales, group or affinity business or employee benefit plans. This allows our distribution partners to control and manage their own processes. We make it easy to do business with us.
Alternatively, we can offer a white label sales solution through our Third Party Administrators’ call centres or a strategic partnership with Berkley Canada distributors who specialize in travel insurance.
While Berkley Canada has standard insurance products, we are able to provide customized coverage and pricing to meet the needs of our distribution partners.
