Moore Stephens announces global RuleBook partnership alongside Asia launch

London and Hong Kong, 3 October 2016

Moore Stephens Consulting has announced a major agreement that will further its global reach as it gets set to launch its dynamic RuleBook tool in Asia.
Moore Stephens Consulting and NTT DATA UK have concluded an agreement to provide a comprehensive international service set to underwriters and brokers in the London and global insurance markets. NTT DATA is a leading IT services provider and global innovation partner headquartered in Tokyo, with business operations in over 40 countries. This will enable Moore Stephens Consulting to implement, roll out geographically and support clients on a global basis.
Initial work will see NTT DATA UK partner with Moore Stephens Consulting to provide RuleBook configuration and testing and deliver cloud monitoring and support services to a number of clients, underpinning RuleBook’s growth as a global platform linking underwriters and brokers.
The Company has also announced it will use the East Asian Insurance Congress to be held from October 11-14 in Macau to formally launch RuleBook into the Asian markets.
RuleBook is the market leading rating, underwriting and distribution platform trusted by some of the market’s leading insurers and brokers. RuleBook’s combination of a powerful ‘rules engine’ and underwriting desktop caters for the most complex specialty lines. 
Paul Latarche, Partner and Head of Insurance at Moore Stephens commented,” We have undergone a significant period of growth with RuleBook, embraced by 15 of the leading players in the market. The partnership with NTT DATA was the natural next step. It gives us the bandwidth to support clients globally, utilising the technical expertise and global reach of one of Japan’s leading technology companies.”
He added: “We are delighted to announce that the RuleBook system will be available to underwriters and brokers across the Asian markets. Its success in the London market in enhancing the ability for the placement of complex specialty global risks, and driving more efficient communication between underwriters and their brokers have established the system as significant step forward in bringing the insurance process into the 21st century.”
Steve Mitchener, Chief Executive Officer of NTT DATA UK says: “This is a tremendous opportunity for us to deliver real innovation and value. The strength of the partnership is based on a combination of strong cultural alignment, a commitment to high quality work, Moore Stephens Consulting’s London Market expertise underpinned by NTT DATA’s Centres of Excellence and scalable onshore/offshore service model.”
