The Council of Australian Life Insurers (CALI) has achieved a significant development in its Partner Program by securing Equisoft, a provider of digital solutions for the financial sector, as its inaugural corporate partner.

This initiative by CALI is intended to promote greater cooperation within the financial services industry by linking life insurance executives with specialists from various disciplines. 

CALI CEO Christine Cupitt emphasised the importance of building strong professional networks and collaborative solutions to industry-wide challenges. 

“This is about creating deep professional connections and working together to support our industry and find the most innovative solutions to business challenges,” she said. “We’re proud to join forces with Equisoft and its impressive team of digital technology leaders as we continue to grow our Partner Program network.”

Joining the programme, Equisoft plans to leverage its extensive experience in digital technologies to enhance the services CALI offers. 

“Equisoft’s deep domain expertise in the financial services industry will help our members continue to expand Australians’ access to the life insurance protection that suits them when they need it most,” Cupitt said. 

Equisoft’s engagement in the CALI Partner Program brings three decades of experience and collaborations with over 278 companies in the financial services realm. This partnership is aimed at addressing intricate challenges in the insurance and wealth management arenas. 

Ms Naintara Sahay, vice president of insurance and wealth management at Equisoft APAC, outlined the mutual benefits this collaboration will yield.

“We look forward to collaborating with CALI to share knowledge and solutions to benefit their members.

“Through this partnership, we can participate in forums to address business problems and provide solutions to support the life insurance industry’s strong future,” she said, reported Insurance Business.
