Munich Re provides a variety of digital solutions across the Life and Health insurance value chain, with local, regional or global applicability:

Munich Re Automation Solutions: Providers of world-leading digital new business solutions, from automated pre-assessment and underwriting engines with analytics insights to AI-driven augmented underwriting solutions.


Dynamic Risk Calculator, India: A web-based predictive analytics tool that enables real-time prediction of an applicant’s risk profile in respect of adverse selection and/or fraud with suggestions around appropriate risk checks and underwriting requirements. This ensures stricter scrutiny for high risk applicants and smoother onboarding for better risk profiles.

iRisk, China: Our next-generation digital risk assessment solution utilises internal and external data together with predictive models for a more accurate risk selection at the application stage. This data driven risk scoring streamlines the underwriting process and increases profitability by reducing potential anti-selection and fraud.

Our expert teams support the implementation and operationalisation of AI and Advanced Analytics across focused areas along the insurance value chain with a focus on sales, underwriting and claims. 
Augmented Underwriting with AI
Our flagship, next-generation risk assessment solution combines AI models and data to augment and streamline existing underwriting processes. This results in material improvements in straight-through-processing rates and overall customer experience. This can also be complemented with non-disclosure-, fraud-, early claims-models or mobile/activity based risk scores for a more refined risk selection and improved claims experience.
We support the sales process through propensity-to-buy AI models using insurance, retail, bank, mobile/wearable data; optionally refined with an underwriting AI risk score. These risk scores also support cross/up sell campaigns or cross/up buy transactions. Overall our models increase sales, transforms the customer experience, optimise the use of marketing budgets and personalise the onboarding of customers’ journeys based on their individual risk profiles.
Augmenting claims with AI
This targets the increased automation of life or medical claims as well as the detection of fraud, waste and abuse in medical claims. The result is an overall improved customer experience, increased operational efficiency and reduced claims.
Our modular AI solutions comprise everything from AI model development, system integration, hosting, monitoring and maintenance to comprehensive AI risk implications, fairness and explainability analysis.  Optional reinsurance financing is available to overcome budget constraints.

Munich Re Markets manages financial market risks embedded in insurers’ savings and investment products – enhanced by white-label technology to digitize investment-linked life insurance to increase sales and customer satisfaction. 

In low interest rate environments, investment-linked products provide an attractive alternative to traditional fixed income backed saving products. However, telling the sales story of such products can be challenging. A set of Software Suites supports agents to better explain and customers to better understand financial products – providing explanation, configuration and self-service of investment-linked life insurance. With simple integration into existing frontends, innovative web tools enable insurers to increase conversion rates in the sales process as well as customer satisfaction and loyalty.
