AXA XL, the property & casualty and specialty risk unit of AXA, has extended its alliance with US-based WINT Water Intelligence.  

This collaboration aims to offer advanced solutions for water damage mitigation in the real estate sector by incorporating WINT’s AI-powered IoT technology into the AXA XL Ecosystem of curated technology solutions. 

Water damage, often resulting from leaks, is a prevalent issue in the insurance industry, with more than 30% of builders’ risk payouts attributed to water escape incidents.  

The companies aim to transform property and construction insurance dynamics by reducing water-related risks during construction and operational phases, potentially leading to a more stable insurance market.  

WINT’s continued integration throughout a building’s life cycle is central to the extended partnership, offering protection from construction through to operation. 

WINT and AXA XL’s tie-up also supports sustainability as their solution is said to contribute to water conservation and reduced carbon emissions.

The AXA XL Ecosystem provides clients with access to solutions such as WINT, which include real-time leak detection, auto shut-off capabilities and AI-driven analytics for water management. 

The WINT platform is supported by multiple partnerships within the insurance industry, including with carriers such as HSB and Munich Re, brokers such as Howden and risk engineering companies.  

Insurance carriers often offer financial incentives for WINT-protected facilities, such as lower deductibles and premiums. 

Globally, WINT’s technology is employed by customers including the Empire State Building, HP, PepsiCo and Suffolk Construction.  

AXA XL head of innovation for Americas Rose Hall said: “We are committed to managing and reducing risk for our clients, and WINT’s ability to scale from construction through the operational phase makes it uniquely suited to meet our goals.  

“WINT has proven to be an essential partner in our ecosystem, and we are proud to continue and expand our collaboration to benefit general contractors and equip them with the innovative tools they need to meet the challenges of water risk.”
