Thornside has announced that it has been appointed by US-based Assurant to provide and administer the latter’s new pet insurance product, for the next three years.

The firm, which forms part of the Capita group, will provide dedicated sales, fulfilment services and claims handling to Assurant’s Protect your Bubble brand, which is underwritten by Agria International Försäkring AB and now offers three levels of cover for pet owners.

Assurant’s head of channel and product development, Stephen Ebbett, comments: “We are confident that Thornside has the experience and knowledge to provide this exciting new product for our customers and we look forward to working with them over the next few years.”

Last month, Thornside was appointed by insurance giant Aviva to develop its pet insurance offering, again on a three-year contract.

The company, which trades as Petwise Health Insurance, currently administers more than 35 pet schemes for affinity partners, and insures approximately 300,000 dogs and cats in the UK.
