AKUR8: Boost your insurance pricing with Transparent Machine Learning 

Written by Jolijn Schalkwijk on Jan 25, 2024

Classic actuarial work can be ineffective in pricing quality and delivery speed. Akur8 aims to revolutionise insurance pricing with Transparent Machine Learning, boosting non-life insurers’ pricing capabilities with speed and accuracy across the pricing process without compromising on auditability or control. 

Its modular pricing platform automates technical and commercial premium modeling. It empowers insurers to compute adjusted and accurate rates in line with their commercial strategy while impacting their business and maintaining absolute control of the models created, as required by regulators worldwide. With Akur8, time spent modeling is reduced by 10x, the models’ predictive power is increased by 10% and loss ratio improvement potential is boosted by 2-4%. 

How it works 

Akur8 supports pricing experts at every step of the pricing process, leading to an increased efficiency. From data processing and visualization to exporting final models, Akur8 provides a comprehensive modular approach to pricing built around three main modules: 

  1. Risk – to build technical models and pure premiums 
  1. Demand – to build behavioral conversion and retention models and measure price elasticity 
  1. Rate – to iterate on rate plans (commercial premiums) and run portfolio analyses
