Jersey City, NJ, Sept. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JERSEY FAST, a Verisk business and leading software provider for the insurance and annuity industry, has been acknowledged again in the Gartner Magic QuadrantTM, an analysis used by many companies to help evaluate technology providers. Specifically, FAST improved its position on the Quadrant's ability to execute axis compared to the previous year. 

For the third consecutive year, FAST was recognized by Gartner in the August 2020 edition* as a Leader for life insurance policy administration systems in North America for its completeness of vision and ability to execute.

"FAST is relied on by many insurers as an integral platform for modernizing operations across the policy lifecycle," said Maroun Mourad, president of global underwriting at Verisk. "The FAST team's relentless focus on customer-centric solutions and extensive experience is helping us expand our presence and deliver a wide range of innovative tools to the life insurance market."
