MS Amlin is deploying Cytora's artificial intelligence underwriting technology to improve and help automate underwriting decisions across its commercial property portfolio.

The partnership will enable MS Amlin to use the Cytora Terminal web application to power open market underwriting with the aim of improving underwriting performance. Cytora will also provide MS Amlin with risk scores through its Risk Engine API integration with Acturis to improve risk selection and pricing in their SME automated trading book, with the aim of achieving significant premium growth over the next three years.

The partnership reinforces Cytora’s commitment to transforming commercial insurance through data and technology, and underlines MS Amlin’s strategic focus on driving operational excellence through innovation.

MS Amlin strategy & innovation director Paul Taffinder said: “AI technology is transforming the way insurers do business. This new and exciting partnership with Cytora is a testament to MS Amlin’s commitment to digital innovation and the use of smart technology, further cementing our position as an insurer of the future.”

We are focused on increasing digital integration, improving operational efficiency and the user experience for our brokers and clients, and this partnership with Cytora helps us improve all three. We look forward to working with the team at Cytora.”

Cytora CEO Richard Hartley said: “We’re excited to partner with MS Amlin, an ambitious insurer and proven market leader who shares our vision to make insurance more frictionless and data-driven.

“The opportunities AI opens up for the insurance industry are vast, from improving profitability and reducing expenses, to providing more practical cover that is easy to access and seamless to purchase. Cytora is dedicated to making this possible.”
