"We evaluated various solutions and selected Unirisx as our partner for this major venture because we were impressed with Unirisx's proven global product, multiple successful implementations in Asia-Pac, exceptional staff with knowledge and expertise, advanced technology platform and ability to launch products quickly in new markets and geographies. We are delighted to move forward as a team, and to take our business ideas and the Unirisx product into this new territory and beyond."
Primary Asia Holdings needed a proven, innovative technology platform to provide a strong foundation for strategic initiatives in the Asia-Pac region. The key objectives going forward with Unirisx are to streamline operational efficiency, and provide speed-to-market for Primary Asia Holdings' insurance products. Subsequent implementations will include several other countries in the Asia-Pac region.
"We are excited by this opportunity, as well as by the opportunity to work with Steve Hardy, one of the P&C industry's most renowned professionals," said Julian James, EMEA director of business development for Unirisx. "Steve was instrumental in launching swiftcover.com in the UK, and we are very excited to be part of this venture and the ongoing efforts to achieve something similar and groundbreaking in China. We recognize the importance of the Asia-Pac region in the global insurance arena, and Unirisx is uniquely equipped to help clients address this market's growing insurance needs."
"We are very pleased to have been selected by Primary Asia Holdings as a transformational partner, and we are grateful for the confidence placed in our company, people and product by Steve Hardy and the company's management team," said Akhil Tripathi, CEO of Unirisx.

To be launching initially in China expands our geographic footprint in the region and solidifies our commitment to being a global solution provider of choice."
