Florida-based Sydney Consulting Group has selected two offerings within Wolters Kluwer Compliance Solutions’ NILS™ INsource® solutions suite to advance compliance support of its many insurance carrier clients. Along with its adoption of the NILS™ INsource® solution, Sydney Consulting Group has implemented NILS™ State Filing to more effectively track and manage evolving regulatory compliance obligations across state jurisdictions for its clients.
Sydney’s clients include insurance carriers of all sizes, from InsurTech start-ups to Fortune 100 companies. Its health and life insurance consulting practice consists of actuaries and compliance professionals with leading expertise in supplemental health and life products such as Accident, Critical Illness, Cancer, Hospital Indemnity, Term Life, Whole Life, and Universal Life.
“The clients we serve face an ever-changing regulatory environment that requires keeping pace across multiple state and federal jurisdictions,” said Hunter Sexton, JD, MHA, Compliance Consultant, Sydney Consulting Group. “We selected Wolters Kluwer’s solutions based on our familiarity with the system and its impressive capabilities. The single technology platform will empower our team to more effectively manage our clients’ regulatory compliance obligations.”
NILS™ INsource® is a web-based tool for efficient and effective research, allowing insurers to monitor the vast array of regulatory material and readily assess compliance ramifications of evolving insurance obligations. Insurance compliance professionals can obtain focused, accurate content in significantly less time by leveraging the tool’s insurance terminology indexing and compliance topic and subtopic category database, vastly enhancing their compliance efforts.
NILS™ State Filing is also web-based, combining key regulatory details and transmittal forms in an easy-to-use, quickly deployable format. Users can focus on achieving business objectives, rather than on time-consuming research and maintenance monitoring of each relevant jurisdiction for regulatory requirements that may impact their customers.
“Our NILS INsource suite of solutions has long provided insurers a trusted and valued resource to help consistently manage complex and ever-changing compliance and regulatory obligations across the insurance landscape,” said Steven Meirink, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Wolters Kluwer Compliance Solutions. “We are pleased Sydney Consulting Group has added these core tools to its existing insurance compliance capabilities set, providing an ideal platform to improve its compliance program productivity and help reduce non-compliance risks.”
NILS™ INsource® is viewed as a definitive primary content resource for almost 7,000 insurance professionals and departments in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
