By-peril rating has potential to generate lift for insurers

By Doug Wing  |  June 15, 2015

Many insurers have significant potential to generate lift by aligning rates more closely with underlying risk levels, according to a recent Verisk analysis of industry rating plan data. Our analysis compared current rating plans and premiums with by-peril rates that are based on the relative risks of each policy across nine perils informed by specific building characteristics.

ISO Risk Analyzer® shows a 61 percent difference between the industry's most overpriced and underpriced risks. The predictive model enables insurers to use the highly refined loss cost relativities to develop a variety of business and pricing strategies.
