As part of the deal, HDI Global Specialty SE Australia has appointed Precision Autonomy to underwrite and accept commercial drone insurance on their behalf. Through its cloud-based platform and unique rating model, Precision Autonomy will underwrite both traditional annual policies and pay-per-minute policies based on individual drone pilot usage.
Mark Halverson, Precision Autonomy’s CEO and co-founder said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with such a forward-thinking global specialist insurance company.
“As technology advances and we seek alternative, sustainable and safer autonomous transport and delivery, this market, including commercial drone use will grow dramatically. Providing the right insurance solutions for brokers and operators will be the key to this growth.”
The partnership will initially see insurance solutions being offered in Australia and New Zealand for commercial drones.
Mark Fleiser, HDI Global Specialty SE Australia’s General Manager and Head of Branch added: “Precision Autonomy’s platform, rating and pricing models are dynamic and highly sophisticated. I look forward to seeing this partnership realise its potential in offering brokers and their clients truly differentiated autonomous aviation risk solutions.”
