Lumnion: state of the art AI based pricing platforms for Non-Life Insurance
In insurance, the old way of pricing is manually preparing the data – a time consuming activity that can (in some cases) take up to 3 months. Often this is because insurance companies only use GLM for risk modelling and time to market of any price change needs manual intervention and sometimes even requiring hard coded changes in the core systems. On top of that, many companies also lack the data and knowledge to move into behavioural pricing from only risk-based pricing.
With the use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Lumnion provides a unique platform where there is no more a need to manually maintain tables of rules at the core IT systems but instead, model risks with the use of all widely available ML Algorithms with the same data set. Changes in pricing and any rule defined gets reflected into street instantly and bring transparency into all ML Algorithms’ results at the same time.
Automating the data preparation process with Lumnion makes it possible to cut down on manual work for actuaries and IT resource in the company so that each can focus on other more important tasks. Modelling using the same data set with all widely accepted ML Algorithms such as XGBoost, Random Forest and Decision Trees on top of GLM provides more accurate risk measurement and selection. Lumnion’s platform also allows for real-time price management of the products in an omni-channel way with its embedded rule and pricing engine. The four tools of the Lumnion Platform are already in use by 12 insurance companies in various countries.
