Finlex and R+V offer digital Commercial Crime insurance

In times of increasing exposure to white collar crime, the Frankfurt-based InsurTech Finlex is expanding its product range and is now offering a digital placement process for Crime insurance. The product is launched in Germany and Austria starting with R+V as the risk carrier. The threat of financial losses from criminal offences committed by persons of trust and third parties makes this insurance another important part of every company’s risk management.

Risks of increasing commercial crime

Representative surveys show that every third company in Austria and Germany falls victim to white collar crime every year. The offenders are employees, third parties or both in collaboration. Theft, deception, fraud, sabotage, embezzlement and disclosure of company secrets are only a few examples of commercial crime.

Commercial crime insurance provides companies with comprehensive protection against this increasing risk. Finlex now offers commercial crime insurance on its online platform with the risk carrier R+V Allgemeine Versicherung. A short online risk assessment leads to advantageous offers at a high level quality. Sums insured range from 50,000 up to one million euros as per each insured event and twice per insurance period. “We are very pleased that we were able to expand our product offering on the Finlex platform together with R+V to include commercial crime insurance and thus to enable brokers to conclude contracts digitally” says Mgr.Zuzana Ruzsikova, Financial Lines Insurance Expert Austria + CEE at Finlex.

Dr. Elisabeth Poschauko, Head of the R+V Credit and Surety Department in Vienna adds: “White collar crime is an ever-increasing risk for companies.

The new cooperation with Finlex now offers our partners the possibility to promptly issue policy SMEs up to EUR 15 million online or to combine existing cyber risk and/or D&O covers with our white collar crime cover.”
