Brune de Linares, chief of sales at Akur8, added, “Forging a partnership in Spain is a great milestone for Akur8 expansion, reinforcing our footprint in Europe. AXA Spain will empower their team of 36 pricing actuaries to leverage Akur8 across all lines: personal, commercial and health, on both direct and intermediated business.”

Nuria Fern?ndez, Retail Customer Offer Direc-tor and Actuarial Director at AXA Spain, added, “Our partnership with Akur8 reinforces our commitment towards customer-centricity, allowing us to bring as much personalisation as possible to our policyholders, a founding pillar of our strategy in Spain. It also illustrates our push for differentiation through innovation and digital transformation, especially in com-plex times.

Enrique Rodr?guez, head of personal actuarial department at AXA Spain, commented, “Akur8 allows for a reduction in modelling time, enabling us to build new prices much faster and significantly decreasing our time-to-market, while increasing the productivity of our team.p>
