Following another significant year of insured catastrophe losses, carriers will be assessing their performance for the year ahead. Historically, positive investment returns and effective portfolio management alone may have been sufficient to remain profitable – but times are changing. The insurance industry continues to see capacity squeeze margins and diminish returns, along with increasing catastrophe losses and changing consumer habits. The need to become more rigorous, yet nimble, in underwriting has never been more critical. Many innovative insurers are doubling down on their digital underwriting efforts to drive more efficiencies. The winners will be those that can combine better quality location data with speed to make smarter decisions, faster.

Join this complimentary webcast to uncover the role that quality model derivative data can play in improving business outcomes. You’ll also learn how:

  • Faster quoting and increased automation can drive lower expense ratios, higher productivity, and improved overall operational performance for cat-exposed property
  • To improve your risk selection to avoid adverse risks that are not aligned with risk appetite
  • Implementing risk-adequate pricing and premiums can improve your underwriting performance
  • And more!
