Accelerated Underwriting

Accelerated Underwriting

Insurers are pulled in many directions, having to embrace innovative underwriting tools and approaches while evolving away from full underwriting. Many companies don’t have the time or resources to investigate all the latest data and technology options to see which is right for them. With so many new alternatives on the market and the fast-changing pace, it’s hard to know where to start. We can help.

Underwriting Tools



The Gen Re underwriting manuals provide our clients with reliable, up-to-date information to assess risks effectively. Creating and maintaining the manuals are a team of experts dedicated to constantly improving and further developing underwriting guidelines.

  • Our SOURCE underwriting manuals are dynamic risk assessment tools – available for the full range of risks relevant to Individual Life, Individual Disability, and Critical Illness underwriting
  • Custom-SOURCE is available for companies that want control over the content to reflect their own company-specific underwriting guidelines. Group Life clients enjoy customization on limited duration underwriting.
