Lab activity

Primary way aimed to improve insurance processes and tools whilst in the Accelerator: New sources of risk insight - data or models  

HazardHub was able to access data from 23,000 claims from Managing Agents that it used to verify its product offering. The Lab helped to prove the value of HazardHub models when assessing hurricane, wind and storm surge risks. This proof has allowed syndicates to quickly and accurately assess the risk for any existing or prospective book of US property business. 

​“The Lab was a fantastic partner in the London market and super-accelerated our success and eventual exit!”
Bob Frady, Vice President
