Competitive Analysis - Personal Lines
A strong commercial lines company wanted to expand their personal lines writings in the Midwest. They wanted to have a competitive analysis system to track their competitors’ rates and review along with their latest rate change indications. Pinnacle developed a competitive analysis engine showing their competitive position including color-coded maps for a market basket of representative risks.
Pinnacle was approached by a major regional, predominantly commercial lines insurer to perform a holistic review of the insurer’s overall operations with an emphasis on determining the company’s personal lines strategy. The review included an historic analysis of industry profitability by line of insurance including various risk diversification scenarios. In addition, we performed a review of the company’s organizational structure with particular focus on the company’s marketing and distribution systems. Pinnacle’s recommendations provided a roadmap which would allow the company to grow more profitably, improve retentions, operate more efficiently and assure that the right personnel were in the right places within the organization.
Pinnacle was approached by a major national personal lines insurer to develop a vehicle rating program to replace the use of the ISO symbol product. Pinnacle, through the use of predictive modeling, assisted the carrier in designing a new vehicle rating program which made use of the vehicle’s actual physical characteristics for both the liability and physical damage coverages. The data used for the analysis was the company’s VIN data supplemented with industry VIN data and appended for vehicle characteristics from an external third party vendor. The resultant program completely eliminated the need for use of the ISO symbol and exhibited greater predictive power than the prior ISO based system.
At Pinnacle, we partner with you to explore whatever path it takes to find the answers you need.
