Ensuring precise underwriting is of utmost importance for insurers to sustain consistent profitability. The poorly maintained data and lack of quality data are challenging for manual risk assessment. According to the NAIC 2021 report, the homeowner’s line was unprofitable again in 2021 with a combined ratio of 103.8%, down from 107.4% in 2020. In recent years, an increase in the frequency and severity of natural catastrophes placed pressure on homeowners’ profitability. There is consistent underwriting losses in four of the last five years.

This huge knowledge will empower the next generation of insurance professionals with the insights and skills needed to excel in with a shorter learning curve.
