The eDocs portal, the platform which hosts electronic documentation for NIG regionally-traded products, became accessible to Hub registered brokers on Tuesday 6th December via the eDocs portal on our online trading platform, The Hub.

Feedback for the eDocs portal has been very positive, however, there are still brokers within our network who are yet to experience electronic documentation for regionally-traded products. In order to benefit from our latest initiative to make NIG effortless to trade with you must register to our award winning online trading platform TheHub.

Why do I need to sign up to TheHub?

Moving forward NIG will no longer be sending out paper documentation for regionally-traded products. This means product documentation for regionally-traded products will only be available via the eDocs portal on TheHub.

Therefore, it is vitally important that all brokers who require access to customer documents are registered on TheHub as this is the only way to access the eDocs portal.

If any individuals trading with NIG are not signed up to TheHub and need access to customer documents they'll need to register as soon as possible. For more information, brokers should contact their NIG Relationship Manager or Underwriting team.
