Columbia Insurance Group Selects Valen Analytics for Underwriting Capabilities

Denver, CO – Valen Analytics®, an Insurity company, and provider of proprietary data, analytics and predictive modeling for P/C insurers, recently announced that Columbia Insurance Group will deploy its InsureRight® Platform to enhance underwriting capabilities. Columbia will utilize the Predict application of Valen’s platform to increase visibility and efficiency in risk selection and pricing for its workers’ compensation underwriting teams.

“Valen’s platform will greatly benefit our market intentions for both the near and intermediate future regarding workers’ compensation,” said Terry Gechter, Commercial Lines Underwriting Manager at Columbia. “This is primarily due to the company’s ability to build custom models that perfectly suit our needs and the knowledge set that brings to the table. With Valen’s in-depth knowledge and analytics platform, our teams will have increased confidence in matching risks and rates.”

Valen’s predictive solution for Columbia will enable the insurance group to enhance underwriter understanding of the risk, increase awareness of class code trends driven by governing classes, build confidence for pricing risks, and allow underwriters to better manage potential audit issues. The platform is powered by Valen’s contributory database, one of the most robust purpose-built data consortium for predictive analytics.

“By partnering with our team, Columbia will equip their underwriters with the technology they need to accurately price risks in an efficient manner and enhance the quality of their insurance services,” said Dax Craig, CEO of Valen Analytics. “This enables the company to identify and write more of the policies that fall into their targeted risk profile.”
