Using AI to speed up insurance processes

Founded in 2018, Akur8 is using AI for insurance pricing. It developed a unique AI-based insurance pricing solution that automates modelling for non-life insurance companies while keeping full transparency and control over the models created, as required by regulators worldwide.

Using Akur8’s AI proprietary technology, AXA Tianping will be able to shorten the time-to-market by automating rate modelling with machine learning in the pricing process, as well as improve the performance of policies with AI-driven predictive power. 

Fully owned by AXA Group, AXA Tianping provides a range of personalised products and services across health, motor, lifestyle, and commercial lines. Deeply rooted in China for more than 20 years, the company currently serves over three million customers nationwide and has 25 branches across China. 

“We are delighted to announce this collaboration with AXA Tianping in China. AXA Tianping is a well-established and renowned insurer, and we are looking forward to supporting its actuarial department in its best-in-class strategy and innovative explorations. APAC has always been a strategic market for us. We have been building our presence there for a while now, across various geographies and insurance lines. This collaboration is an exciting way for Akur8 to enter the Chinese P&C insurance market and to strengthen its global relations with AXA”, said Samuel Falmagne, CEO at Akur8.
