Acturis Group

Delivering real world innovation globally since 2000

About the group

We’ve always been an ambitious lot at Acturis, and that ambition has taken us from an initial focus on UK commercial insurance into more markets and more countries than any other SaaS insurance platform.

But whatever market or country we enter, we do so on the same principle that has guided our success from day one – delivering technology as strategy.

And it is that approach that will see us move into more and more markets and territories as we bring the real benefits of technology to businesses just like yours across the globe.

Technology as strategy – it’s simple, but it works.

A professional choice

The platform of choice for insurance professionals in over 40 countries

A global platform

Over 95,000 users worldwide

A strong track record

20 years of consistent growth in users and revenue

A growing business

Over 900 colleagues finding new solutions

There’s more than one string to our bow.

In fact, currently there are eight, but we are always looking to add more choice, more innovation and more territories to the Acturis Group.

Each of the companies that make up the Group are focused on a particular sector, territory or product. Each one is an independent specialist in their field. But together, they represent one of the most comprehensive and innovative insurance software Groups in the world.

With over 22,000 users in the UK, Acturis is the leading e-trade platform, building and running eight of the top 10 UK insurer extranets (Insurance Times E-trading Survey 2021) and with an ever-growing broker community.

Our first foray beyond UK shores, Acturis Deutschland is now the leading integrated software and pricing data provider to the German insurance broking market.

The North American arm of the Group, building from the acquisition of Power Broker and Brovada and adapting the Acturis SaaS platform to provide seamless e-trade to insurance brokers across Canada.

Extending the Group’s European presence, Acturis France provides an integrated, end-to-end online platform for the country’s leading insurers and brokers.

What Acturis has done in the commercial market, NIS is doing in the global travel insurance, international health and assistance market. And at pace.

With ICE InsureTech, our award-winning cloud-native, IoT-enabled, micro-services based platform for personal lines insurers and MGAs, we are again changing the face of insurance.

The e-trading arm of our French operations, Add Value Assurances, is the market leader in commercial e-trading with a network of over 3,000 brokers across the country.

Brovada is a leading electronic trading player in the Canadian market with an unrivalled understanding of the connectivity between broker systems and insurers.
