A coverholder, in the Netherlands better known as “gevolmachtigd agent”, is a company or partnership authorised by a managing agent to enter into a contract or contracts of insurance to be underwritten by the members of a syndicate managed by it in accordance with the terms of a binding authority.
Coverholders allow Lloyd’s syndicates to operate in a region or country as if they were a local insurer. A coverholder can have full or limited authority to underwrite on behalf of a Lloyd’s syndicate. It will usually issue the insurance documentation, premium collection and will often handle claims.

QSX Intermediaries BV was established in Amsterdam in 1985 in cooperation with Lloyd’s broker Thompson Heath and Bond (Ltd). In 1988 the shares held by the English partner were acquired by the Dutch management, making QSX an independent company.
The Company Mission is to provide Continental Europe with professional facultative reinsurance brokering services. Insurers located in North and South America and Asia make use of the services that QSX offers in order to spread their large risks among European reinsurers.
During the 1990’s, QSX expanded the scope of its services, offering its services to Dutch insurers and large insurance brokers by placing complex, Dutch commercial risks with (re-)insurers throughout the world. The company moved to Rotterdam in 1998, to be at the centre of the Dutch insurance market. Ten years later, the emphasis shifted towards the placement of niche consumer insurance coverages and the company relocated to Deventer. Besides this location is QSX also represented in New York (USA), Milaan (I) en Gent (B).

CoverYou focuses on the insurance of mobile electronic equipment (Smartphones, Tablets, Notebooks). Sales are carried out in The Benelux, Germany and Italy.

QSX Claims not only takes care of its sister company CoverYou’s claimshandling, but also acts as a Third Party Administrator for the claimshandling and administration of other insurance companies and insurance brokers.

VSZ’s mission is based on the social interests of rapid recovery; this results in fewer benefits and ensures that the return to work is commensurate with the pay factor. Revenues and taxation instead of costs and benefits.

VSZ is the private alternative to the UWV. VSZ provides financial solutions that enable businesses and establishments to become self-insurers for the Sickness Benefits Act and to insure this risk privately. Self-insurance means responsibility for employees. Not only during, but also after their employment contract. VSZ will ensure that the risk of sickness is insured and re-integration is guaranteed. VSZ works in partnership with Acture in respect of the re-integration guarantee. Acture is a private implementer of social security measures. This means that Acture, as opposed to the UWV, implements the Sickness Benefits Act for people that do not have employment contracts. As said above, should you decide to become a self-insurer for the Sickness Benefits Act, Acture will completely take over from you the implementation of the Sickness Benefit Act, re-integration and the payment of sick pay, which will enable you to continue to focus on your company’s core tasks. Acture is a private implementer of social security measures. Acture gets employees back to work five times faster than the UWV and the risk of inflow into the WIA is reduced by a factor of 8.
