Coverholder reporting

  • Woman looking at reports on two laptop screens
    The coverholder collects and reports details of the contracts (risks) and premiums as part of bordereaux management

    Where lots of premiums are submitted in a particular month, loss funds can run out before the bordereaux are shared

  • A man on a computer sending a document
    Coverholder shares the bordereaux with all parties on the contract in line with the terms agreed in the binding authority contract

    Bordereaux reporting is on a monthly basis which delays information and data flow

Bordereaux processing


  • Two people on computers with an icon of two people shaking hands
    Parties of the contract review the risk contracts and agree the bordereaux
    Pain point not applicable to this step

Bordereaux processing

Digital processing and payment

  • A woman doing technical checks on three computers
    Technical checks are completed for accounting purposes

    Checks occur late in the process and can often result in queries that delay fund movement and/or loss fund top up

  • Money being sent from one person to another
    Fund transaction is created, and the monies are moved accordingly

    Loss funds are established late in the process, delaying the movement of data and the processing of premiums
