Hiscox launches new London Market Web App

11th July 2013

London, UK (11 July 2013) – Specialist insurer Hiscox has launched a new Web App, Hiscox Global Insight which provides news, views and practical advice to London Market brokers in a new convenient format.

Hiscox Global Insight follows a magazine format and each edition will offer an in-depth look at a specific subject, starting with terrorism, and update people in the market on Hiscox news.  With three planned per year, the App includes enhanced features such as animation and interactive content as well as the ability to comment on articles, driving discussion online.

Its responsive design ensures it caters for varying screen sizes and devices, adapting to the orientation of tablets and other devices.  The App is also integrated with social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, making it easy to share content with colleagues and contacts.

Paul Lawrence, Chief Underwriting Officer of Hiscox London Market, explained: “Our underwriters and broker partners share insight regularly, but the Hiscox Global Insight tool gives us the ability to share with a wider audience.  We hope brokers and clients get real value from it.”

Other key features of Hiscox Global Insight include:

  • Offline reading – save a shortcut to your home screen and enjoy the application anywhere, even without an internet connection;
  • Intuitive navigation – swipe left and right to reveal a preview of the adjacent article, aiding navigation and improving page load speed;
  • Accessible via a browser – no download required;
  • Retina ready – iconography and typography is optimised for retina displays; and
