Latitude Brokers launches pilot

Hong Kong, 29 November 2016 – Latitude Brokers, the Asia based marine insurance specialist, have launched PILOT – the first online P&I Club comparison tool.

In time for the 2017 P&I renewal season, PILOT distils critical information for each IG Club in to an efficient, live and interactive format allowing owners to easily compare their Club’s performance, and download individually designed reports.

Vanessa Toucas, Founding Partner said: “Our clients expected us to do something different to the traditional publications that are quickly out of date and rarely read in detail. Seeing Club data in this medium makes such a difference.”

Charles D’Alton, Founding Partner, added: “PILOT has been very well received by the market and is just one element that demonstrates our approach. It is so much more user-friendly and means clients can focus on the information that is key to them, whilst being certain that it is up to date.”

PILOT is constantly updated with the latest P&I Club financial information, along with historical data, S&P ratings and membership overviews.

PILOT includes all the International Group Club data and Latitude are already working on the next version which will include non-IG Clubs and specialist charterers liability underwriters.
