    How to achieve profitability despite lacking historical data.

    Our pricing solutions for insurers and insurtechs

    • We advise on strategic choices, scale up your business and help set up pricing and underwriting committees. We support insurtechs and digital players to define the best rating strategy, portfolio steering frameworks and pruning actions.
    • We help you build or grow your pricing team, we train your pricing specialists and provide them an independent and global view on insurance pricing and underwriting trends. We advise on competitive benchmarks leveraging the global exposure of Munich Re.  
    • We gain a holistic understanding of your portfolio by taking a deep dive into your historic data. Together with you, we build the perfect framework to steer your book towards prudent and profitable growth. This includes identifying, structuring and cleaning the data as well as enriching it with proprietary and external data.
    • Technical pricing: we help you develop the most accurate constrained and unconstrained cost-based models. We adopt traditional generalized linear/additive modelling (GLM/GAM) and expand into ensemble techniques and automated machine learning (AutoML).
    • Behavioural pricing: based on granular market premiums information, we develop market models to cater to your diverse needs. We leverage the most advanced modelling techniques to build and integrate market predictions into your demand models. We also develop a competitive market analysis to get your first tariff segmentation right. Accounting for customer behaviours, including mid-term cancellations, endorsements and adjustments, is key to stay ahead of competitors. We help you leverage randomised price-tests to account for policyholder’s elasticity.
    • Price optimisation: we set up impact / dislocation analysis, we run simulations and what-if scenarios to optimise ratemaking choices. Moreover, we advise on discount strategies in a data-driven approach. If market conditions allow, we can set up hard price optimisation including a revision of caps and collars to find the optimal individual price per customer at the point of sale.
    • We support you to revise existing products or conceptualise and design new ones, be it from scratch or by leveraging your data.
    • We offer off-the-shelf products to cater e.g. for the enhanced needs of electric mobility or gap protection covers.
    • We revise underwriting selection criteria and exclusion rule and advise on the adoption of pruning actions or improvement of the renewal strategy.
    • Geospatial analytics: with microzoning solutions, we help you detect spatial patterns and model deficiencies and – when applied in pricing – improve your geographical risk segmentation. We help you boost your risk pricing of home and motor books, engineering new predictive features.
    • Vehicle grouping: different dimensionality-reduction and clustering techniques allow us to develop vehicle-specific groups, leveraging advanced analytics and proprietary data enrichment.
    • Electric Vehicle Analytics (EVA): a specific vehicle grouping solution for EVs, leveraging Munich Re’s exposure and advanced machine learning (ML) techniques. We developed sound statistical analysis that enables you to identify and classify vehicles according to their similarities. We validated the assumption that similar vehicles share a similar risk level, which translates into an easier assessment of (new) vehicles.
