Haven Insurance Becomes The Latest IFB Customer

20 February 2014

Set up to deal with organised motor insurance fraud, over the last couple of years the IFB has expanded and developed its range of products and services in response to the changing fraud landscape. As well as doubling headcount and capacity, the IFB also included application fraud within its remit in 2013 and has plans to develop its broker model this year. Also in 2014 the IFB will explore how it can include commercial motor data, which inevitably will further extend its products and services and benefit those organisations who wish to join the collective fight against fraud.

With products for Public and Private Hire Insurance, as well as Fleet, Motor Trade, Minibus, Commercial Vehicle and Non Standard Motor, Haven provides solutions to customers whose needs sit outside of mainstream motor insurance products.

Chris Lathey, of Haven Insurance, stated: "Haven has always taken a robust stance in protecting our customers from fraud. We are continually looking to enhance our fraud detection and prevention capabilities to deliver the best service and lowest prices for our customers.

"We look forward to working with the IFB in our respective efforts to combat and disrupt organised fraud."

Ben Fletcher, Director of the IFB, said: "It’s fantastic to have Haven on board and contributing to the collective fight against insurance fraud. The IFB already work with 98% of personal lines motor insurers and we are actively talking with many of those with whom we do not presently have a formal relationship. Detecting and disrupting fraud relies on access to good quality information and the IFB's position at the heart of the issue, with unrivalled access to industry, law enforcement and other regulatory data, is further strengthened with Haven's contribution."

The IFB was formed in 2006 to spearhead the collective fight against organised insurance fraud. Since its inception, the IFB has assisted police with over 900 arrests, securing more than 225 years in prison for organised fraudsters.
