Insurance Loss and Lapse Models

With a more granular view of your customer base, you can reduce bad debt and increase profitability

Manage credit risk more effectively and increase your profitability

By using the predictive power of our insurance models, you can quantify risk to set more accurate rates, improve efficiencies, attract new policyholders and increase the value of existing policyholders. The Insurance Loss Ratio and Lapse Models predict the likelihood of a consumer having a high loss ratio or lapsing within 3, 6 or 12 months after the inception/renewal date. These models are calibrated using predictive variables and provide customers with greater insight into policyholder behaviour than ever before.

With access to deeper insights obtained from these models, businesses can swiftly profile and identify customers who could be at risk of churn, and retain customers who are likely to be profitable. This allows them to move away from blanket increases at renewal by adjusting pricing according to an individual’s risk profile.
