Bolster Underwriting Performance Through Effective Pricing and Governance

Insurance carriers and their brokers need to achieve underwriting consistency.  They also need to manage their portfolios and provide differentiation – not just through price to avoid the “race to the bottom” but also through improved client care and value added services.

Patrick Mottram, Senior Director – Product Management at Precisely, joined a panel of experienced insurers and pricing experts at the Intelligent Insurer’s Commercial Lines Innovation Europe Virtual Event.  Topics discussed during this session included:

  • Achieve underwriting consistency and quality. Learn about strategies for improving underwriting performance through rigorous portfolio management and enhanced qualitative judgement on specific industries.
  • Explore the limitations and benefits of technical pricing to assess underwriting performance.  Use technical pricing to support discussions with clients, and negotiations with brokers, while making allowances for deviation.
  • Navigate the regulatory landscape to allow for effective data-sharing, comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation and minimize the impact that regulations have on customer dynamics.
  • Avoid price wars in the small and medium-sized enterprises market and an erosion of market share by differentiating your offering through enhanced care, value-added services, and risk management tools.
  • Build data-driven analytics to inform broker relationships and improve underwriting performance with distribution management techniques and a quality submission flow.
