Pricing decision intelligence for reinsurers

HX Renew

hx Renew offers something new: powerful tools, flexible integrations, and an intuitive, connected workflow between actuaries and underwriters, helping you eliminate admin and deliver growth.

Challenges for reinsurers

When it comes to pricing complex risk, out of the box solutions simply won't do. Home-grown tools offer a customized alternative, but they struggle to scale and are prone to break — especially during busy renewals seasons.

During renewal season, reinsurers must handle a signifcant number of submissions, each requiring them to thoroughly analyze risks, assess exposures, negotiate terms, and define price. Efficiently managing this process necessitates significant resource allocation.
Building sophisticated models

Building sophisticated models

Legacy technology lacks the required capabilities and flexibility for complex data analysis, modelling techniques, and advanced algorithms. This hinders accurate risk assessment, impedes decision-making, and inhibits the ability to respond quickly to market changes.
Managing peer reviews

The need for rigorous evaluation and validation of underwriting decisions can result in lengthy and time-consuming procedures. Teams must coordinate multiple stakeholders, manage feedback, and ensure consistency across the board.

No data put into hx Renew is lost. With Excel, everything gets trapped in a spreadsheet and is unusable in the long run. In Renew, we can aggregate all of our pricing data, for example, by line of business, and use that to create our development factors. The ability to move a case easily from one year to the next to help with renewing the policy is valuable for the team.

We have found hx 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.

Samantha Tanner | Chief Actuary, SCOR

One of the challenges of growing a broad, global, multi-platform (re)insurance business is ensuring that legacy systems do not limit our ability to move quickly and respond to new opportunities. hx Renew is a key part of our strategy to ensure our pricing capability remains ahead of our competition as we grow and evolve.
