The acquisition will further expand Verisk’s risk assessment offerings for the global insurance industry, providing solutions that are embedded with customer workflows and can help underwrite medical coverage for travelers with greater speed, accuracy, and efficiency.
“Travel insurance is part of the global property/casualty insurance market and a line of business where underwriters often need to quickly evaluate and price risks that can vary widely depending on those traveling and where they’re visiting,” said Beth Fitzgerald, president of ISO Solutions. “The powerful tools developed by Healix Risk Rating allow insurers to identify and assess these risks at point of sale and allow us to better serve both the travel insurance market and property/casualty insurers around the world.”
“We’re proud to join Verisk, whose access to a global network, vast industry knowledge, and experience with analytics will help us enhance our products and provide additional value to our clients,” said Paul Beven, managing director, Global, and founder of Healix Risk Rating.
“Healix Risk Rating and its unique underwriting tools will be a valuable addition to Verisk Analytics as we develop new ways to innovate with our customers around the world,” said Mark Anquillare, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Verisk Analytics.
