Insurity Acquires Valen Analytics

Staff Writer | January 26, 2017

Insurity announced its acquisition of Valen Analytics, a provider of proprietary data, analytics, and predictive modeling for P&C insurers. The Valen brand will be retained with the organization, operating as ‘Valen Analytics, an Insurity company.’

The addition of Valen further elevates Insurity’s market position and the strategic value it can offer to its customers as they meet the challenges and opportunities presented by the current wave of innovation, and increasing demands for a modern customer experience. In addition to its established core processing systems that are architected to enable data driven processes and user experiences, Insurity’s Insurance Enterprise View (IEV) offers a holistic solution to the data collection and aggregation issues that plague many insurers today.

Insurity customers can take advantage of Valen’s data-first strategy, having amassed contributory data assets across all standard P&C lines. Valen’s InsureRight Platform and predictive analytic solutions produce results that dramatically improve underwriting performance and give insurers the confidence to leverage the real-time risk selection and pricing tools needed to offer a digital experience for both policyholders and agents.

“The evolution of the personal and small commercial insurance markets is a focal point of incumbents and new entrants alike, and a contributory approach will help propel the capabilities of insurers who want to assert their relevance in delivering a modern customer experience,” says Dax Craig, Valen CEO and president. “Valen is honored to join Insurity, a company that understands the needs of P&C insurers, and how important it is to make decisions supported by data analytics.”

“Recent Novarica research shows that more than half of insurers are using real-time scoring today, and more than a quarter are planning pilot programs this year. Solutions like Valen that unite insurance data and proven analytic models are likely to be in high demand. This acquisition adds a new cloud-based component which can cross Insurity’s broad portfolio of core systems and enterprise data offerings,” says Matthew Josefowicz, president and CEO of Novarica, a research and advisory firm focused on insurance technology strategy.

Karlyn Carnahan, Celent’s research director, says, “This acquisition represents another bold move for Insurity as it continues to vertically integrate across the insurance business. It will strengthen their competitive marketplace position and complement the existing portfolio of products while adding new, key capabilities for their clients. Valen will benefit from being able to leverage the additional resources provided by Insurity to continue expanding their solution offerings and accelerate growth.”

“Valen has pioneered a world-class approach to underwriting analytics with the development of InsureRight Platform,” said Jeffrey Glazer, Insurity CEO. “Valen’s contributory data assets, real-time deployment technology, and solid bench strength of insurance expertise, has a proven track record of successfully integrating analytics into the underwriting decision-making process. There is built-in alignment with Insurity’s commitment to deliver tangible results for customers, along with the strategic advantage resulting from our synergistic solutions.”
