We recognise the need to change the life insurance application journey from a complicated, inefficient experience to one that makes the buying process easier and faster for customers and advisers alike.
UnderwriteMe has been on a journey to transform the global life insurance industry ever since. Discover how it started and the strong partnerships we have formed with advisers and insurers over the years, making life insurance faster, easier and more accessible.
The UnderwriteMe journey started with Underwriting Rules Engine (URE) implementations. We have now grown to become the leading provider of URE across the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. This has involved creating strong partnerships with some of the leading brands in the global protection market, which we still continue to do today.
Founded in 2012, our aim was to bring the process of selling life insurance into the 21st century with cutting edge underwriting and a better user experience.
In 2015 we launched The Protection Platform in the UK.
Initially known as the Comparison Service and re-branded The Protection Platform, The Protection Platform meant advisers could deliver a stand-out customer experience using a single process to quote, compare and underwrite multiple protection products from a range of providers.
In 2017 we launched in the Asian market with Singapore Life (now SingLife).
In partnership with Pacific Life Re, Singapore Life was the first insurer in Asia to offer our Underwriting Rules Engine to the Asian market. The Underwriting Rules Engine drove significant efficiencies for Singapore Life by delivering high straight-through new business processing rates.
