Qlaims was set up by a group of visionaries with decades of experience of working in the general insurance market.
Over the last few years, we’ve been developing new, disruptive technologies and approaches – based on those used in consumer logistics – that merge traditional insurance with Insurtech.
The aim? To offer a quicker, easier, less expensive claims journey for policyholders, brokers and insurers alike.

Malcolm is our founder and CEO and had a background in ﬁnancial accounting software before becoming an insurance corporate claims advocate working for multinational Clients around the Globe. He created the original Loss Recovery Insurance product which provides policyholders with the services of their own Loss Adjuster which is still being sold in the UK today.
Passionate about improving the Customer claims Journey, in 2016 he started to develop the concept of a twenty-ﬁrst century upgrade of Loss Recovery Insurance, fusing conventional insurance, claims handling with the latest mobile and cloud based Insurtech software technology. The result of which is Qlaims Insurance

Chief Operating Officer
Shelley is our Chief Operating Ofﬁcer and has been a professional manager with a varied background, managing growth and change in global organisations.

Outside of work she can often be found sweating it out in a hot yoga studio, in between her extensive travel itinerary.
Our Qlaims ofﬁce dog, tells us she never intended to go into insurance or even Insurtech. Upon leaving boarding kennels with a relatively good Kennel Club Certiﬁcate her ﬁrst thoughts turned to farming, possibly some sheep work or even security. Like everyone else in the City, she kind of fell into insurance. She believes in the next few years you will see more and more insurance ofﬁce dogs, there are no glass ceilings standing in their way. Dogs at Board level, CEO’s and even entering Lloyds’, who knows.
