Praedicat uses scientific research, advanced data analytics and modelling techniques to help (re)insurers better understand and manage emerging risks. The idea was born out of a research and development project between RAND and RMS. Praedicat uses data science and artificial intelligence to build a probabilistic liability catastrophe model and risk products for some of the world’s largest insurers and corporations. 

Lab activity

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

In Cohort 3, Praedicat created a new insurance product, "Hundreds," the first casualty product in the Lloyd’s Lab covering risk on a named peril basis. This includes new technologies regarded as “emerging risks" such as 5G or nanotechnology, as well as essential chemicals in manufacturing and agriculture. This product is designed to cover both general liability and D&O around the same liability events, which is a common coverage gap. It provides underwriters with data that allows them to assess their exposures and control aggregation risks. 

During its second stint in the Lab with cohort 5, Praedicat developed a suite of scenarios for the casualty insurance market to help insurers track exposures, establish reserves and manage aggregations for COVID-19 liability. The scenarios are designed to address clash risk from Covid that may impact general liability and D&O lines within an insurer’s portfolio. During this time, it developed a relationship with Experian, which resulted in a collaboration between Experian’s data and risk scoring methodologies and Praedicat’s emerging risk and portfolio modelling capabilities resulting in the creation of a solution for the D&O market. 

“Being part of the Accelerator definitely enabled us to integrate more with the Lloyd's Market, which still very much has a face-to-face culture.”
