The Reactions London Market Awards encompass direct insurance and reinsurance, rewarding brokers and underwriters, as well as celebrating the leading service providers for the London Market.

The independent judges are leading respected London market executives who scrutinize each nomination to separate the best from the rest, and identify the sector’s star performers.
Ebix were presented with the Technology Provider of the Year award due to their achievements in developing and supporting the PPL initiative for the London Insurance Market.
James Pring, Head of Sales, Ebix Europe, commented: “The recent announcement from Lloyd’s to mandate electronic placement has seen the usage on PPL grow exponentially and we are absolutely delighted with the acknowledgment from the London Market for all the work we have put into PPL.
By the end of Q4 this year, each Lloyd’s syndicate will be required to have written a minimum of 30% of its risks electronically. As such, there is an expectancy for brokers and carriers to be maximizing use of the platform, and accordingly they are now actively looking to purchase or license an ACORD gateway which is capable of sending and receiving placing messages and integrating their back-office system into PPL.
With the volume of placements increasing, the business case is clear and Ebix Europe is a fully ACORD certified gateway provider and able to offer advice on how it could work for any broking house or system vendor.”
