Astrenska And Intana Represent Re-modelling Of Collinson Insurance Group

Move is an affirmation of the Group’s strategy to focus on core capabilities and develop market-leading products and services through the expansion of specialist areas of expertise.

David Evans, Managing Director, Insurance and Assistance of the Collinson Group said, “I am delighted to announce the launch of Astrenska and Intana to the market. “By consolidating our core capabilities under specialist divisions we are able to provide competencies specific to distinct market needs. By aligning these brands through the Collinson Group we can deliver a seamless service to clients when both capabilities form part of the customer solution. “With the existing skills and expertise we have and a clearly defined strategy for future development and growth, Intana and Astrenska are set to make a serious impact on the market.”

Astrenska is the new underwriting division led by Gareth Absalom, Group Head. Astrenska combines Collinson’s range of products and expertise in non-core personal lines insurance into one focused area of specialism. Gareth has over 25 years’ experience in the London insurance market and will manage a team of underwriting specialists. The consolidation creates a division that underwrites over £100m of GWP for its carriers, including A+ paper across key areas such as IPMI, personal accident, health and travel. With the flexibility to deliver co-branded, white labelled and fully managed products to market, Astrenska is well positioned to support its clients in accessing key growth areas of the non-core personal lines insurance market. CIB (formally known as Collinson Insurance Brokers), remains a key area of specialism for Collinson Group, delivering partnership capability in technology led models and traditional broker services.

Intana is the new claims and assistance division led by Martin Weintz, Group Head. Intana has been created by adopting best practice in assistance and customer experience management from capabilities established through both acquisition and organic growth to deliver a fresh approach to assistance services.

Intana offers emergency medical assistance, claims handling, roadside assistance and home emergency support. The brand also provides pre-trip screening, travel guidance and security advice. It will also place focus on the creation of new propositions for nonemergency services.

Martin has over 30 years’ experience in assistance and was previously at AXA Assistance where he worked in a number of senior roles in France and Germany, most recently as Chief Executive of AXA Assistance Germany.

David Evans, Managing Director, Insurance and Assistance of the Collinson Group said, “I am delighted to announce the launch of Astrenska and Intana to the market. “By consolidating our core capabilities under specialist divisions we are able to provide competencies specific to distinct market needs. By aligning these brands through the Collinson Group we can deliver a seamless service to clients when both capabilities form part of the customer solution. With the existing skills and expertise we have and a clearly defined strategy for future development and growth, Intana and Astrenska are set to make a serious impact on the market.”
