Centralization and Modernization of Reinsurance Activities by QBE Insurance Group Limited


Implementation of a centralized system for ceded and assumed reinsurance

Enhancement of process efficiency through automation

Achieving global consistency in reinsurance processes


Successful implementation of the new system within a tight timeframe

Significant improvement in the accuracy and timeliness of recovery processes

Automation of a number of recovery processes

We were looking for a platform that would be able to provide “one source of truth” for reinsurance calculations throughout QBE – for both ceded and assumed reinsurance. We also felt that Duck Creek Technologies were a good fit for QBE and that we would be able to work well with them.

The Challenges

  • Lack of Global Consistency in Processes
    QBE operates in multiple currencies with varying processes around reinsurance due to different capabilities of internal legacy systems. This led to a lack of global consistency.
  • Inefficient Legacy Systems
    The existing legacy systems lacked the full range of automation necessary for process efficiency.

The Solutions

  • QBE chose Duck Creek Reinsurance to manage and centralize all the reinsurance processes.
  • The platform provided full currency flexibility and streamlined processes for different divisions operating in multiple currencies.
  • The overall data structure and architecture were designed to allow for applications across the Group as a whole.

The Impacts

Improved Accuracy

The new system vastly improved the accuracy of reinsurance calculations.

Increased Efficiency

The system allowed for automation of several recovery processes, significantly improving their timeliness.
