This is who we are and
how we are different.
Our co-founders realized that most insurance solutions fall short of protecting small to midsized enterprises (SMEs) from the emerging risks of our digitally-connected world. That is why in 2018, they launched BOXX Insurance with the goal of giving SMEs advanced insurance solutions at an affordable price.
BOXX Insurance brings together new technologies, data science, and specialized underwriting to go beyond protection to predict, prevent, and respond to the risks of day and tomorrow.
We go 'beyond’ traditional insurance.
We help our global clients do more and risk less.
Anyone can claim they are changing traditional insurance. But we've made a promise to:
From application to claims, we've made all of our touchpoints straightfoward and digital
