‘Insuring’ a great end to 2016 for Validus

Our portfolio companies are widely recognised for their innovation and expertise, and insurance technology business Validus has topped off a successful 2016 by being crowned ‘Claims Partner of the Year’ at the Insurance Times Awards 2016.

This win came after the business also scooped the ‘Technology Partnership of the Year – Claims’ accolade at the magazine’s Tech and Innovation Awards earlier in the year, where it was recognised for its new verify™ portal that was launched with the backing of major motor insurers Aviva and Ageas.

It was the third national award for the business this year, which walked away with ‘Claims Initiative of the Year’ at the British Insurance Awards for its verify™ tool, all marking a stellar year for CEO Mike Srokowski and his team.
