Faster Claims Payment (FCP)

Faster Claims Payment (FCP)


FCP is one of the key milestones for 2022 of the Future at Lloyd’s Blueprint Two programme, which is digitalising the Lloyd’s market to make it better, faster, and cheaper. FCP gives managing agents greater flexibility in their capital management and provides all participants with real-time visibility over claims payments as well as a reduction of associated account and transactions fees.

What is FCP?

Faster Claims Payment (FCP). FCP is a transformative payment solution which allows Delegated Claims Administrators (DCAs) for Lloyd’s binding authority business to make payments on request, drawing on managing agent funds directly, removing the need for loss funds and the associated cash calls for funding deficits. The solution is leveraged through the Vitesse payment platform, paying claims in minutes instead of days and weeks and in local currencies.

FCP has become a market service as a result of managing agents’ commitment to adopt and use the solution. LIMOSS will be supporting the Future at Lloyd’s adoption team to bring the committed managing agents onto the Vitesse platform over the next six months.


LIMOSS will be setting up the appropriate governance to ensure the service meets the requirements of all stakeholders, including:

  • Contract (MUA) review and signing
  • Subscription charge collection via STFO (twice yearly in Jan and July)
  • Transactional charge collection via STFO (monthly in arrears, based on usage of the service)
  • Service oversight (performance against SLA’s, monthly operational reviews)
  • Service governance (monthly Steerco, CAB, delivery of change, release management including market user testing)
  • Supplier assurance (service risk tracking, audit report review)
