Future-proofing insurance

It’s important for carriers to maintain accuracy and consistency across their enterprise. We provide an insurance platform that enables insurers to underwrite opportunities and build and distribute plans. We empower carriers to create new, modify existing, and retire obsolete products and services to consistently meet market demand.

Our approach is unique in the industry because we combine the power of a product-centric environment with an understanding of people and process. Our partnership is one focused on shared success.

With 40 years in the insurance industry, we’ve learned from our relationships to innovate for the future. Our approach spans verticals and countries: as a subsidiary of msg life, our offices throughout Europe and North America hold a global ecosystem of professionals whose experience in health, group, and P&C insurance bring together the best practices in the industry.

This diversity enables our creative, individualized approach to each client. Combining unparalleled expertise in business, technology, and actuarial sciences, we offer a strategic pathway to operations and distributions efficiencies.

Marc Dutton, CEO

Marc arrived at insurance by the way of banking, first as a Financial Analyst with Barclays, and later in sales with Northwestern Mutual. Marc quickly found that his favorite aspect of insurance was creating an experience for the customer through connection and engagement. Passionate about finding solutions to his customer’s financial needs, Marc fittingly found his niche in 1996 with the emerging technology industry, joining FJA as the Vice President of Sales. As President and CEO of FJA since 2009, Marc oversees a diverse range of opportunities and employees. He strategically develops new business with clients and builds leadership in the office.

 

Carl Krapp, CIO

Carl came to New York City like most young people— right out of school and searching for a job. Attracted to the risk of a small company and a large, East Coast city, Carl chose one of three offers and began his insurance career at Finansys, which was later acquired by FJA. In 2001, he architected the Product Machine and in 2002, applied the Product Modeling experience to US Healthcare. With a Ph.D. in Software Engineering from one of Germany’s three Schools of Excellence, Achen University of Technology, Carl is driven by quality and depth of both solutions and people. He encourages his employees to think below the surface and always anticipate the next question. Although he has been in New York since 1998, Carl remains proud of his Germany heritage, light-heartedly partaking in heritage parades that accentuate traditional folk dress. It is with this layered vision that Carl continues to develop world-class software, appreciative of FJA’s mission to hand data maintenance over to the client in order to research more advanced solutions for the future.
