Rate Making






Rate Making

In rate making, it is important to accurately estimate the frequency and severity of expected claims so that premiums are set properly. The premiums need to adequately cover payouts while providing a competitive cost to the customer. The bottom line is, risk and the expected value of payouts must be accurately estimated to set optimal pricing.

STATISTICA offers predictive model building tools applicable in a variety of areas including underwriting, rate making, claim management, and fraud detection. In addition, STATISTICA Enterprise allows the company to automatically monitor and alert when patterns change. This helps to stay ahead of factors that will influence premiums. Forecast models may be enhanced by the addition of unstructured text information to the predictive variable pool.
