It’s generally accepted that the first written insurance agreement was established with the Hammurabi code. It took quite a while—over 3,000 years—before humankind could establish enough understanding of risk transfer and mathematics and analyze enough data to develop the first actuary tables in the late 1600s. Since then, the sophistication within every part of the risk-sharing process—from rate-making to underwriting to claims—has increased at a quickening pace, driven by greater precision and predictability and built on an ever-expanding amount of data.
