Founded and led by former actuaries, we’ve made it our mission to create the pricing software that we wanted when we were on the actuarial frontline. Together with our first-rate engineers and computer scientists, we’ve made that wish list real. We’ve developed a set of tools that dovetails with the needs of the modern insurer, making it simple to get the very best out of your team and transform the way you work and perform.
Impassioned innovators one and all, we imagine better possibilities and invent leading-edge technologies to realise them, equipping our clients to work smarter and excel themselves.
By focusing in on your needs and working right alongside your team, we’re able to develop solutions that work for you and embed them seamlessly into your organisation.
And not just when it comes to the shiniest things…we understand it takes time, intention and direction to deliver fundamental and useful change
In a constantly shifting industry, we’re always looking ahead for new and better ways to work…so teaming up with us means you know you’re ready for whatever is coming down the track.
Our co-founders came from senior positions in the insurance industry and have CVs that span more than two decades and three continents. Their time in the corporate world, where they were ultimately responsible for designing and rolling out an entire ecosystem of pricing and analytical models, told them the industry standard solutions weren’t fit for purpose. Software could be smarter, more user-friendly and agile. Data could be leveraged more intelligently. Repetitive but important work could be automated.
So they quit their jobs and set out to create the kind of software they wished existed and they knew their customers needed.
The result is hx and our next generation modelling platform, Renew.
Michael is the Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer of hx, developing cutting edge pricing tools for the actuarial world.
With a background in Strategy Consulting and building his own ventures, Richard is Chief Operating Officer at hx.
Tom is the Chief Technology Officer at hx and responsible for our platform's strategy and development.
Rob is Head of Customer Engagement at hx and acts as the touchpoint for all our customers.
Matt is our Head of Talent and Community, with over 7 years' experience in the field of technical recruitment.
Daryl is Lead Engineer at hx and as an early joiner he has developed and refined much of the core platform.
Spend time working with us – either as a member of our team or as a client – and you’ll quickly realise that everyone here shares our values. We have a universal passion for all things tech, of course, and an unwavering quest for excellence; we’re always going beyond the standard or expected. We love to experiment too, so we’re big believers in the power and value of initiative. And kindness and thoughtfulness are not words you’d necessarily associate with the corporate world, but they genuinely describe the way we deal with each other, our clients and the world around us.
“InsurTech has exploded over the last few years. A critical part of this is enabling businesses to move faster through better use of data. Installing agility and control are two differentiators that lift hx above the rest. The team’s deep domain expertise and passion in solving a problem that’s plagued the industry for years is right at this intersection.”
Nigel Walsh, Managing Director, Insurance, Google
“We have found Renew to be an excellent pricing and underwriting tool. The Python development environment is intuitive and comes with a load of pre-built insurance features – a big step forward from spreadsheet models which took up a lot of actuarial time to maintain. The user experience has also been very positive, with underwriters appreciating the slick user interface with data validation and underwriting management appreciating the standardised data and audit trail. The highly responsive hx team are a pleasure to work with. They proactively make connections to the latest market innovations/products and are always open to our ideas for developing new features. Highly recommended as a flexible package product especially if you don’t have the appetite to develop a bespoke in house pricing/underwriting system.”
Samantha Tanner, Chief Actuary, SCOR
“Renew is in a different league to the alternatives. We have been impressed by the speed at which we were able to deploy models –as well the quality of support.”
