Biometric Analytics

Interactive and intuitive – benchmarking and actuarial analyses are now offering deeper customised insights

    alt txt



    The informational value of biometric data is increasing for life insurers with the depth and scope of analysis capabilities, and with the size of the data pool available. In the Biometric Portfolio Analysis (BPA), Munich Re is offering in the German speaking region unique prerequisites in both regards. 

    With a history extending back over 15 years and more than 30 participants for various product types, we have at our disposal the biggest data pool by far on biometric risks. It facilitates informative overall market analyses and is a very solid foundation for bespoke benchmarking and trend research. Also included are the latest methods such as multivariate analyses and Machine Learning, with which life insurers are able to gain deep insights into their own datasets and derive new actuarial findings.  

    New: Biometric Analytics

    In addition to the already established Offline Cubes and PDF reports with analysis results, we provide BPA-participants for the first time with a yet unique and interactive analysis tool. It renders possible deep and individual exploration of your own internal portfolio data, as well as benchmarking for the overall pool from interactive dashboards. Usable exclusively for BPA participants, the platform-based solution enables autonomous analyses and broadens the Data Analytics offering of Munich Re in life insurance.

    Using our new Biometric Analytics offering, clients are able for the first time to analyse their own portfolio data from our annual Biometric Portfolio Analysis (BPA) interactively, and reconcile it with the market-wide pool. This broadens our established result formats and enables unique actuarial insights and benchmarking understanding.

    Questions and answers

    The rollout of our new platform offering starts after the Life Expert Session on 21st June and should be finished by autumn 2022. We are making Biometric Analytics available to all corporations who took part in the BPA in 2021.
    We are offering Biometric Analytics online via a Munich Re platform solution. You benefit in that you only need a desktop computer with online capabilities. Programming knowledge and special software installations are not required. 
    We protect the business data of our clients and meet stringent compliance regulations. For queries that are too granular and an all too limited data pool as a result, benchmark information is no longer provided. This occurs on a rules basis and is in the interests of all BPA participants. 
    No, concluding a reinsurance contract is not a prerequisite. All corporations making available to Munich Re their portfolio data for the BPA are authorised to use the new offering.
