Association of British Insurers (ABI) welcomes BT into Associate Membership

(7 July 2016)

BT has become the first major technology firm to sign up to the Association of British Insurers’ (ABI’s) Associate Membership scheme

BT has been working with the insurance industry for more than 30 years and counts 47 of the world’s top 50 insurance companies as customers. It provides digital technology, telecommunications and data security services for all aspects of business.

And now, BT has become the first major technology firm to sign up to the Association of British Insurers’ (ABI’s) Associate Membership scheme.

The ABI’s Associate Membership category was developed to enable non-insurance companies to join the ABI, such as those helping insurers deliver their services. Associate members benefit from services including access to the full range of ABI statistics, industry updates, thought leadership work, networking opportunities and reduced rates for ABI events.

Huw Evans, ABI Director General

It’s very exciting to add BT to our growing list of Associate Members. It is a globally recognised name and a firm which provides a wide range of security, network services and digital solutions across the industry. Top quality technology and support for innovation are essential tools for all insurers and pension providers as they compete to offer the best experience to their customers in a highly competitive environment.”
