Legacy Underwriting Managers (LUM) has been named the Best Portfolio Administrator at the recent Santam National Broker Awards. This is the third time in six years that this prized accolade has been awarded to the Legacy team. Santam Insurance, the largest short-term insurer in South Africa, honours providers of excellent service and top performing brokers for 2018 with these awards. Legacy Underwriting Managers has been providing custom-designed information technology and broker administration solutions to the short-term insurance industry since 2003 and has partnered with some of the biggest names in the South African insurance industry.
Says LUM’s Sarel Roux, Executive: Operations and Compliance: “This is a great honour. What makes an award such as this even more special is the fact that Legacy specialises in a field where we are measured by the same yardstick as the insurers themselves. With this award also comes great responsibility. Being recognised as a leader in our environment we at Legacy understand that it also places a duty and responsibility on us to lead by example. We will therefore continue to strive to make the impossible possible! We thank our dedicated staff and all the brokers who have supported Legacy over the years.
“In an industry where independent brokers are competing with direct insurers for clients, it is more vital than ever that policy information and a range of functionality is available at the touch of a button, putting control directly into the hands of brokers and clients alike. This can best be achieved by using a custom-built broker system such as the cutting-edge Legacy On-Line platform developed by LUM.”
