Pilot partner RSA Insurance Group is winner of Treasury Today's Adam Smith Awards 2012 – “One to Watch”

Deutsche Bank and Xchanging plc are pleased to announce their client, RSA Insurance Group (RSA), has been recognised in the prestigious Treasury Today Adam Smith Awards 2012 as “One to Watch”. This category includes any solution which is in development, has been implemented as a direct result of macroeconomic events or is particularly innovative.

RSA is working alongside Deutsche Bank, Xchanging and their partners on an innovative centralised accounting and net settlement solution for the global insurance market. RSA will be one of the first insurance companies in the world to use this solution in the early stages of its roll-out. The solution delivers a centralised, multi-currency engine to drive processing efficiency, capital efficiency, regulatory compliance and control into the management of the premium and claims flows between and within global clients, brokers and carriers.

William McDonnell, Group Financial Controller at RSA, comments: “We are delighted to have been recognised by Treasury Today as pilot partner for this pioneering solution. We are enthusiastic about its potential to generate a range of significant benefits both for us and for the global insurance market. This award is a testament to that potential.”

Designed by Xchanging, powered by Deutsche Bank

Xchanging and Deutsche Bank are together developing the new service, supported by project managers Apex Business Consulting. The solution uses Xchanging mapping, translation and message handling technology, proven in the London Market with a central ledger engine that has been configured for the Insurance sector. These are underpinned by Deutsche Bank’s global transaction banking, clearing and FX capability to power the netting and settlement process and facilitate a single netted payment for all counterparty liabilities in each settlement cycle.

The project has the support of the International Underwriting Association and ACORD, the Insurance Data Standards organisation. The roll-out of the solution begins with a limited implementation in Europe during 2012.
