Global insurance broker Hub International Limited has announced the rollout of a new digital platform for transactional insurance. HUB’s new transactional lines offering will allow clients to connect to a comprehensive set of insurance products and expertise through a digital customer experience. New key hires will also accelerate the transactional digital experience and expand HUB’s consumer reach through a network of partnerships, the company said.
