AI-enabled insurance pricing insurtech Akur8 has joined forces with British specialty (re)insurer Canopius to enhance the pricing process of the latter’s digital offerings.

The partnership, which is a first for Akur8 in the UK, is said to mark a key milestone for its expansion.

Leveraging automating risk-modelling and a transparent Artificial Intelligence proprietary technology, Akur8’s solution improves insurers’ pricing processes.

This solution helps insurers to minimise modelling time and thereby, accelerate time to market and the production of more predictive models.

Moreover, Akur8’s cloud-based solution is completely collaborative.

It can function on a fully remote basis, allowing business continuity, especially in these intricate times, noted the company.
