London and New York - 7th of September, 2023

AkinovA, the Cloud-based marketplace for the transfer and trading of re/insurance risk, and Ultimate Risk Solutions (URS), the leading independent provider of risk modeling tools and services in the re/insurance industry, announced a strategic partnership. The collaboration seeks to achieve mutual growth in common markets, leveraging AkinovA’s innovative technology platform and URS’s advanced modeling suite of risk management software products to bring creative solutions to global corporates.

The partnership will offer AkinovA’s clients access to URS’s flexible and sophisticated risk modelling capabilities, allowing for elegant and efficient business decisions. URS clients, in turn, will be able to leverage AkinovA’s cutting-edge marketplace to efficiently transfer and trade risk exposures.

“In my 25 years of industry experience, it has always been the case that strong analytics grounded in actual data makes for a much better risk transfer for all: the insured, their brokers and advisers as well as the underwriting capital. This is all about all parties to a transaction being better informed so they can make better decisions about risk transfer including how it also impacts their capital position. This requires partnerships across different parts of the value chain. We are delighted to work with URS, one of the few independent modelling platforms available today.”

David O’Gorman, Managing Director of Client Services and Head of Analytics at AkinovA.

“We are thrilled to partner with AkinovA and to bring our clients access to their innovative platform to transform the way they do business. This partnership offers both sides valuable exposure to new markets and potential clients.”

Anya Kutsina, Co-Founder and Executive Director of URS
