The company says that it has been receiving significant interest from potential investors in wanting to assess the appetite for Carrot's future growth potentials. Carrot's top tier customer retention rate, fast growing revenue and market share, and normalizing loss-ratio may be deemed positive factors to support investments in the company. In terms of the growth in business presence and expansion of its targeted total addressable market, Carrot is eyeing a possible acquisition and South East Asia is one of the geographies under consideration.

"We are well placed to pursue both organic and inorganic growth opportunities. Our digital lines of products, extensive technology development, strong relationships with partners and major distributors, and the supportive market backdrop will enable us to continue to play a key role in driving the evolution of insurance,"

Lately, the company also announced that it has formed a JV with other general insurance peers to offer tech-based claims management services to its customers while realizing efficiencies through process automation.

Using Devron's federated data science platform, Cover Whale will build and train AI models that can quickly add new and different data sources to estimate risk better, offer to coach drivers, and align premiums.

The platform provided by Devron simplifies the process by enabling access to additional datasets and doing away with the requirement, cost, and privacy risk associated with relocating data. This federated method enables Cover Whale to design, train, and run more effective models to identify unsafe driving behaviors or circumstances more efficiently.

These datasets may include, for example, claims information, various vehicle telematics, external data related to highways, weather conditions, and other such information to acquire a more informed perspective on risk. Cover Whale has commissioned Devron to speed up ongoing data science projects, lay the groundwork for the future development of its operations, and enable faster access to various data sources, formats, and types while producing richer insights with less effort.
