Product development and pricing
The non-life insurance market is shrinking. This requires smartly priced insurance products. We use data analytics to make in-depth risk analysis and we help you translate them into attractive products and profitable rates.
Your ideal partner for the actuarial function
We will fill the actuarial function appropriately, depending on the nature and size of your organization. At larger insurers, we are a sparring partner for internal actuaries and an independent advisor for management and board. The actuarial function advises the board with expert assessment of pricing, reinsurance, technical provisions and ORSA. Being critical as well as thinking along with you; we show that it is possible!
At smaller insurers, in addition to the actuarial function we also provide a first-line actuarial team, completely independent of each other. The first-line team supports pricing, technical provisions, capital calculations, risk scenarios for the ORSA. With our Solvency tools, you comply with all mandatory reports (Solvency, RJ, IFRS) and we help you to work more efficiently and to speed up processes.
‘What could be your efficiency gain?
Actuarial custom service also means that we help you to improve efficiency. Your processes can improve step-by-step, resulting in an increase in quality, with a smaller chance of work delay or interim surprises. We help you unburden.
