Keystone Underwriting Pty Ltd has been successfully operating now for over three months. Directors Neil Sheppard, John King and David Jones launched this independently owned and regulated Australian underwriting agency in February 2020. They obtained an AFS license for their business after being an authorised representative of Quantum.
Keystone sees exciting times ahead for what John King describes as a “service-centric company”, despite the challenges of current market conditions. John explains that, “Keystone strive to be Thinking Underwriters, delivering the best possible outcome for brokers at every opportunity.” Brokers can speak directly to the decision makers at Keystone, a refreshing advantage when timeliness is important.
Keystone are enormously grateful for the solid support they have received from the broking community since the February launch, which has well exceeded their expectations. David Jones best sums this up saying, “We are approached almost daily by insurance brokers who are new to Keystone. They are coming from all parts of Australia.”
Keystone has been thoroughly testing their new end-to-end, online broker portal, over the past few months. They are very pleased to announce that this quote portal is ‘live’. Two years of intensive in-house development has resulted in a system that delivers over 1,500 occupations across 11 product lines to the broking community. Brokers can quote and bind 24/7.
The initial ‘take-up’ by brokers registering for Keystone’s platform is best described by Managing Director, Neil Sheppard. “It’s been amazing to be honest! We have previously mentioned how the launch and success of Keystone has been heavily related to the development of our own technology and its efficiency. We never anticipated the portal would be this popular, so soon after we went live. It’s very satisfying after all the planning and development that has been done.”
Keystone has seen nearly 200 brokers enrol to use their broker portal so far.
