Calgary, AB (Jan. 18, 2019) – Besurance Corporation (“Besurance”), a Calgary-based insurance and technology company, announces it has entered into an acquisition agreement to purchase Fenchurch General Insurance Company (“Fenchurch”). Through this acquisition Besurance aims to bring insurance back to its communal roots and strengthen the relationships between the insured, insurance brokers and Fenchurch.
“Besurance is excited to acquire Fenchurch and welcomes their proven team of insurance professionals,” stated Minaz Lalani, FCIA, Chairman of Besurance. “This acquisition aligns with our organization’s values. Our objective is to leverage technology to innovate traditional insurance concepts by evolving and modernizing solutions that are more closely aligned with customers’ needs.”
Besurance’s vision is to identify and close the gap between the coverage consumers have available to them and the protection they actually need. Besurance achieves this by understanding marketplace deficiencies, improving insurance products and wrapping them in social technology. This approach enables Besurance to restore a many to many, community element that encourages idea sharing, innovation and a participatory culture.
“We are pleased to join the Besurance group of companies,” said Fenchurch President, Steve Brown. “We will continue to provide unique, customer-driven solutions to our new and existing clients. Our leadership and professional insurance team looks forward to applying Besurance’s differentiated capabilities to enhance customer experience and deliver unparalleled value while maintaining our service to existing markets.”
