CATEX Licenses Its Pivot Point Bordereau Management System to Marketform Management Services Ltd.

PRINCETON, NJ and LONDON--(Marketwire - October 25, 2010) -  The Catastrophe Risk Exchange, Inc. (CATEX) a leading web based reinsurance and insurance transaction system operator and developer, announced today that Marketform Management Services Ltd., the managing agency of Lloyd's Syndicate 2468, has licensed the Pivot Point Bordereau Management System.

CATEX's Pivot Point Bordereau Management System allows underwriters and MGAs to upload bordereaux files in any tabular or structured format. Once the initial mapping is established, the files will be automatically formatted and the information across the entire binding authority book will be stored in a homogenous format and structure. The Bordereau Management System provides for the uploading of risk bordereaux which create the underlying risks with all provided information, premium bordereaux which attach individual settlements including APs and RPs to the underlying risks, and claims bordereaux which create and update the underlying claims and attach them to the underlying risks. Underwriters end-up with the same level of information as if they had written and processed and handled the claims on the business themselves directly.

CATEX will be holding two open days at its London Office at 10 Fenchurch Avenue, London, EC3. The open days are on Tuesday 2nd November and Wednesday 3rd November between 12:30pm and 2pm. Anybody interested in the Bordereau Management System is cordially invited to stop by at any time between 12:30pm and 2pm on those dates.
