And let’s not forget remote working and learning. These experiences are more than simply anecdotal; McKinsey has written about the more specific effects of the pandemic on consumer behavior and needs.

Celina Insurance Group Chooses Betterview for Accurate Roof Condition Data

GlobeNewswire | August 10, 2023

Celina Insurance Group, a community-focused provider of P&C insurance for over 100 years, recently announced their selection of insurtech company Betterview. Celina will utilize Betterview’s Property Intelligence and Risk Management solution to drive more accurate assessments of property conditions during policy renewal. Celina sought out an insurtech partner to obtain reliable and consistent data on roof condition, an especially relevant factor for Midwestern insurers dealing with inclement weather. Previously, Celina’s underwriters relied on time-consuming physical inspections to assess roof condition and often had to make adjustments later in the policy lifecycle. Betterview provided Celina with more accurate property data upfront and an extensive selection of roof-related property insights for improved risk selection and efficient underwriting. “Betterview gave us even more than we asked for,” says Trish Harlamert, vice president of underwriting at Celina. “There are so many great datasets and tools on their platform, including a full, transparent assessment of overall roof condition and the ability to flag changes in property condition over time. This is extremely useful for renewals because we can see if a policyholder has added a swimming pool, trampoline, or even an additional structure since the last time we had eyes on the property.” Betterview is confident their platform will drive more efficient renewal workflows for Celina. “Our platform empowers insurers like Celina with an instant, AI-powered view of current and historical roof condition. Our mature machine models can detect over two dozen relevant risk drivers, including staining, ponding, and missing shingles,” says Dave Tobias, chief operating officer and co-founder at Betterview. “Equipped with the best property data, they can make more informed decisions and collect adequate premiums without relying on costly, time-consuming physical inspections.” About Betterview Betterview is the Property Intelligence & Risk Management Solution the insurance industry depends on to identify and mitigate property risk, improve underwriting and inspection efficiency, and build a more transparent customer experience. Applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) and computer vision to aerial imagery and geospatial data, Betterview generates the most accurate property information insurers trust to automate pricing, underwriting, and renewals while focusing strategic action on critical properties. Combined with flagging, continuous monitoring, and pre-filed peril risk scores, Betterview is helping transform property insurance from Repair and Replace to Predict and Prevent. For more information, please visit About Celina Insurance Group Celina Insurance Group is comprised of four mutual property and casualty insurance companies. The companies provide protection for autos, homes, businesses and farms through more than 500 independent agencies in five states. Founded in 1914 with headquarters in Celina, Ohio, the organization is committed to supporting its policyholders and communities.

PRnewswire | June 26, 2023

Canopius, the global specialty lines (re)insurer, and Measured Analytics and Insurance ("Measured"), the AI-powered cyber insurance provider, today announced a new capacity partnership to offer cyber insurance and cybersecurity solutions to small and midsize businesses ("SMBs") in the United States. Canopius joins Paris-based SCOR, one of the world's leading reinsurers, which has been a long-standing lead capacity provider for Measured's strategic growth. The new partnership will combine Canopius' and SCOR's cyber expertise and global reach with Measured's innovative approach to cyber risk management. "We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Measured Analytics and Insurance, as it marks a step forward in our mission to provide comprehensive cyber insurance solutions to small and midsize businesses across the United States," said Jenny Soubra, US Head of Cyber and Tech E&O at Canopius. "When combined with Canopius' and SCOR's expertise, together we are equipped to deliver unparalleled cyber protection to customers. Measured's innovative approach to cyber risk management aligns seamlessly with our capabilities, resulting in a strategic partnership positioned to drive transformative change." Global insurers seeking growth with discipline in cyber insurance demand analytic rigor, technology expertise, and dynamic risk insight across the underwriting value chain. Measured's solutions leverage artificial intelligence, proprietary threat insights and behind the firewall data to identify security threats and reduce businesses' potential exposure. For insurers, this creates a better customer experience and manages risk and profitability. "Best in class underwriting coupled with differentiated scalable distribution are the key capabilities for strong profitable growth in the cyber insurance market," said Benjamin Auray, Chief Underwriting Officer - Global Head of MGA at SCOR. "We believe Measured's data-driven approach to tracking exposure in real-time creates smarter insurance products. Measured is built to scale quickly and grow responsibly, powered by partnerships and proprietary data." With the proliferation of threat actors and the rise in cyber incidents, the global (re)insurance market has raised expectations for analytic rigor to profitably underwrite. This heightened discipline, coupled with rising demand for cyber coverage, has resulted in price increases and coverage contraction. Measured makes it easier to obtain cyber coverage through creative partnerships with market leaders in insurance and cyber technology. Measured's proprietary analytics and technology-oriented underwriting generate deeper insights for insurers and greater value for customers at the initiation of a policy. When combined with the cyber hygiene enhancements of its cybersecurity partners, Measured delivers actionable insight around customers' ongoing security posture. "Measured is uniquely positioned to provide innovative solutions for organizations seeking cyber insurance," commented Measured CEO, Jack Vines. "We're more than an insurance provider, we're a reliable, AI-powered cyber risk management partner. We appreciate the strategic advantage provided by SCOR's commitment of capacity and expertise to date. Together, we're better than ever at making our customers safer and more secure, thanks to having Canopius and SCOR at our side."
