About us

Who we are

Our vision

Akur8 revolutionizes insurance pricing with Transparent AI.
Akur8 developed a unique AI-based insurance pricing solution that automates modeling for non-life insurance companies while keeping full transparency and control over the models created, as required by regulators worldwide.
Akur8 is the only solution on the market that reconciles the Machine Learning and Actuarial worlds, enabling customer lifetime value based price optimization. We strive to transform the insurance industry. We vouch for an ethical Artificial Intelligence, an “AI for Good”: our Transparent AI. We believe pricing sophistication should be a priority for insurers who want to stay ahead of the competition and generate tremendous value, while offering more fairness to their customers.

Our values

Challenge the unbearable status quo

We strive for innovation and for the transformation of the insurance industry. But we command change only when it is a no-brainer and has genuine virtuous impact.

Disrupt the known,
organize the unknown

We work without any borders. We have the ability to challenge ourselves to adapt to unknown scenarios. We thrive in structuring what is hardly structurable.

AI-driven
but refreshingly human

Akur8 is an artificially-intelligent solution but humanity always comes first, within our team, with our clients and with our solution, where AI is Transparent and human-controlled.

Build things
that last

We build long-standing, robust and reliable solutions for new and century-old insurance companies. We are here to stay.
