Lab activity

Primary way aimed to improve insurance processes and tools whilst in the Accelerator: New sources of risk insight - data or models I Data, product & service consolidator 

Swiss Re created a prototype of an Underwriting Data Platform targeting the initial problem of collecting ESG data on private companies and developing usable underwriting insights. The prototype uses three different data sources and collection methodologies in order to provide a more comprehensive view of ESG information than what is currently readily available. It returns raw data, and it allows users to combine it to create their own view of risk. The Lab also offered great visibility and access to Swiss Re’s newly created Reinsurance Solutions division. 

​"The Lloyd's Lab forced us to deliver at speed with a constant focus on clients' needs and feedback. It was an invaluable experience to bring an innovative idea from the concept to the prototype in a completely different environment and to quickly test commercial opportunities."
​Anna Bordon, Senior New Propositions and Partnerships Lead
