Insurify | March 13, 2023
Insurify, Inc., a leading online insurance agency in the United States that specializes in facilitating insurance comparisons, purchases, and management, has recently announced its plans to acquire Inspop USA, LLC as well as Compare.com Insurance Agency, LLC (Compare.com), a reputed player in the US online auto insurance comparison market. The acquisition is anticipated to be finalized within the first half of 2023.
This collaboration will enable Insurify to leverage the strengths of both brands, platforms, and operations to provide cutting-edge solutions to customers and insurance carriers. It is worth noting that Insurify plans to preserve the Compare.com brand.
Compare.com was established by Admiral Group plc (Admiral), a prominent UK-based auto insurance provider and a member of FTSE 100. In connection with the transaction, Admiral will maintain a minority ownership in Insurify and remain a key strategic investor. Moreover, Allie Feakins, CEO of Compare.com, will join Insurify as Senior Vice President of Insurance, where she will spearhead insurance operations for the newly-consolidated company.
Costantino Moretti, Head of International Insurance, Admiral Group said, "This is a positive outcome for Compare.com customers and employees who will continue to empower more motorists in the U.S. to shop and save on their insurance needs. This transaction will enable Admiral to continue to focus on what we have consistently done well, creating, underwriting and delivering leading financial service products, while also benefiting from the continued momentum being seen in the US price comparison market."

Insurity | January 13, 2023
Insurity, a leading cloud-based software and analytics provider for insurance carriers, brokers, and MGAs, announced the launch of Sure Premium Audit Analytics on January 12, 2023.
This product is a part of its Sure Premium Audit solution that integrates robust predictive analytics from Insurity Predict into the auditing process to enhance operational efficiency by up to 15%.
Identifying exposure risk in the premium auditing process remains arduous for many P&C carriers. It may be hard or even impossible for premium audit departments to check all of their business. Instead, many carriers' current premium auditing process is highly responsive and based on standard policy features such as premium, location, and industry.
Sure Premium Audit Analytics addresses these issues with robust predictive models and machine learning built on Insurity's 20+ years of industry experience in premium auditing. Carriers can use Sure Premium Audit Analytics to improve their audit workflows with embedded AI and machine learning, allowing them to optimize the premium audit process by forecasting audit results before the audit is even ordered. Additionally, users can simplify the auditing process by developing custom predictive models on a low-code, configurable interface.
Existing Sure Premium Audit customers and P&C carriers can quickly get started with Insurity's turnkey analytics system, which has been fully integrated into the Sure Premium Audit platform. In addition, customers can synchronize these predictive models into any workflow or in-house tool using Insurity Predict.
Chief Insurance Officer at Insurity, Sylvester Mathis, said, "Premium audits can be a time-consuming process, resulting in carriers leaving hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars of missed premium on the table." He added, "Sure Premium Audit Analytics takes the guesswork out of identifying premiums to audit by proactively flagging policies possessing the characteristics to generate exposures outside initial estimates. Audit costs are reduced, or practically eliminated and time-consuming processes are removed by leveraging the most efficient audit methods."
