Celent Speakers:


18th May: Cultivate Data Enrichment To Drive Underwriting Profitability

  • Leverage new sources of external data to prevent bad underwriting decisions, harness analytics to avoid over-concentration due to risks that aggregate, and improve loss ratios and expense ratios by driving a profitable portfolio that better disperses risk
  • Overcome the limitations of partial or unreliable data from brokers and customers, and correlate property, credit, and hazard data from third parties to validate self-reported data, remove bias, and get a more complete picture of risk before you quote
  • Harness geospatial and weather analytics through satellites and ground sensors to achieve a more granular view of risk, avoid the pitfalls of wiping out a whole zip code, and make it easier to place insurance and confidently price with robust insights
  • Refine your data enrichment strategy to become a key driver of underwriting profitability, cut through the noise to establish exactly which data points help you decide whether to write or how to price, and establish sound data validation practices that combine, correlate and streamline multiple data feeds

19th May: Build A Business-Driven Analytics Strategy For Commercial Lines

  • Ensure you truly capture the rich swathes of data available on customers and the risks they face, and explore strategies for leveraging this data to inform business decisions that drive growth through the optimisation of products and processes
  • Treat data as your biggest asset, create an insights-driven business model that propels efficiency, profitability, and client engagement, and drive cultural change by enabling an evolution from gut-based to fact-based advisory
  • Explore best practice for data curation from the point of ingestion, ensure your data strategy lays the foundation for swift and sophisticated applications of automation, and wrap new capabilities around your existing legacy systems to enable plug and play connectivity with third parties
