BUSINESS UPDATE

Arc covers one in three members of Police Federations in England & Wales

As a result of adding a further four Federations to its growing niche business, one in three members of Police Federations now have access to Arc's specialist legal cost insurance. This totals an estimated 40'000 members across England and Wales now with Arc cover.

The product covers off duty Police Officers for various contractual disputes, prosecution defence, and personal injury. Cover is also provided for the Officers family.

The product has been developed in conjunction with insurance broker, George Burrows, and is designed to complement the existing cover provided by the Federation for Police Officers whilst on duty.

Arc first with unique tenant deposit cover for Government backed scheme

Arc has become one of the first companies to develop a dedicated insurance product for the government's mandatory Tenancy Deposit Protection.

Arc has been appointed by Hamilton Fraser Insurance, the administrators for Tenancy Deposit Solutions Limited (TDSL) one of just two insurance-based schemes approved by the Department for Communities and Local Government to provide cover where there is a dispute between the landlord and tenant over a deposit.

In partnership with Inter Partner Assistance, the 'underwriting provision' arm of AXA Assistance, Arc has developed a new class of insurance, never written before in the UK. In the event of a dispute at the end of a tenancy where the landlord fails to return part or all of the deposit, Arc's cover will ensure the return of the deposit to the tenant if they are entitled to it.

The cover also indemnifies the legal costs associated with pursuing a landlord for breach of contract following a failure of payment.

Arc expands claims and administration teams with new appointments

Arc is delighted to welcome Tina Thackray as Claims Advisor. Tina will support the Claims Manager in the management of legal expenses claims. She will assist in vetting new claims and monitoring live claims, working closely with Arc's customers throughout the process.

Arc has also appointed Adam Simpson as Administration Assistant. Adam will be responsible for the administration of all legal expenses claims as well as assisting the team in daily office administration.
