Around the World

We are working with multiple large insurtechs in the accelerated underwriting space. These insurtechs are developing new tools by leveraging health, credit, and other data that can assess mortality risk.

In collaboration with these companies, as well as with insurance carriers, we are evaluating these tools to help the carriers reduce underwriting time and effort, and increase throughput of applications while at the same time minimizing mortality slippage.
