Claims handling may take up a considerable part of your resources, even though it’s not necessarily your core business. There are multiple strategic reasons to decide to outsource claims handling on a more permanent basis. Ranging from ever increasing complexity in terms of legislation, high-volume claims for which you would have to dramatically increase your staff capacity or the effective management of run-off portfolios. Van Ameyde Marine’s global network offers customised solutions for all your outsourcing needs.
Clients who wish to enhance their claims capability can rely upon our global claims team and their partner network for assistance. Whether a single claim, class of claim or entire portfolios, we can provide a solution to your needs.
