Small business-focused insurtech firm NEXT Insurance has turned to Akur8’s Risk and Rate modelling solution for enhancing pricing capabilities.

Akur8 claims that its technology will help NEXT develop a data-based and scalable predictive modelling framework for insurance pricing. 

The solution utilises patented machine-learning technology, which is claimed to translate into quicker model building, data-driven underwriting, and transparent generalised linear models (GLM) outputs.

NEXT senior actuarial manager Peter Yin said: “With Akur8’s platform, our actuarial, data science, and product teams can collaborate seamlessly throughout the insurance pricing process. It ensures higher efficiency and delivers visual insights that are explainable across a variety of stakeholders.”

Set up in 2016, NEXT currently serves more than 450,000 business owners.

Akur8 has a client base of over 80 across more than 40 countries. Its client list includes Generali, Munich Re, wefox, AXA and more.

NEXT chief actuary Phil Natoli stated: “While every small business is unique, they all share a need for accurate policy pricing.

The latest partnership further strengthens Akur8’s presence in the US commercial insurance sector.

Last month, P&C insurer IMT Insurance selected Akur8’s risk and rate modelling technology.
