Along with low penetration of insurance products and loss-making portfolios, it is the high incidence of insurance frauds which is giving nightmares to insurers throughout the globe. According to industry estimates, in August 2016 property/ casualty insurance fraud alone accounted to around $32 billion a year. This number is just a tiny proportion of the huge volume of insurance fraud which is taking place. It also explains why fraud management has become such a critical aspect of the insurance business. Apart from anti-fraud regulations, major players in the industry are also looking for a proactive and dynamic solution which will enable them to counter such occurrences.

To know how data analytics can help in detection of insurance frauds, get in touch with an analytics expert at Quantzig.
