Faster Claims Payment (FCP)

A funding and payment solution, providing fast and direct payment of claims

What is FCP?

FCP is a solution designed to provide fast and direct payment of a claim to a policyholder and avoid the administrative burden of loss funds. The solution facilitates direct access to insurer funds via the Vitesse payment platform, decreasing any delay in payment. 

FCP was launched in September 2022, and since then 53 of 54 eligible managing agents have signed up to the service, representing more than 98% of delegated authority gross written premiums at Lloyd’s.
