Our strategy

Ellipse is the digital group risk insurerTM. We were established in 2009 to challenge the status quo and bring to the market a new and improved way of doing group risk business. We want to make it simpler, faster and easier for you to arrange group life, group critical illness and group income protection cover.

Before coming to the market we spent a lot of time looking at how the market operates. Obtaining quotes, administering schemes and underwriting individual members was manual and paper based, resulting in a cumbersome, time consuming and expensive process. We wanted to change that.

For us “online” is the norm. Our online system can provide a binding quote within minutes for groups with up to 500 members (and as few as two!). A policy can be administered online by the client or adviser and should individual assessments be required, members can complete them online in minutes. So for SMEs everything is handled online and we offer great premiums too.

For larger groups with more complex requirements, our team will naturally provide greater support at quotation, on-risk and throughout the lifetime of the policy. Where we can improve the process, we do and our LivewireTM data transfer technology has been very successful in automating the monthly administration process for flexible and voluntary benefit schemes.
