Insurance risk management startup Intelligent AI secures £2m

Intelligent AI, which claims to be disrupting insurance risk management with AI and data analytics, has reportedly raised £2m in seed funding.

SuperSeed served as the lead investor, with commitments also coming from the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Investment Funds, according to a report from Insurance Times. Unnamed UK-based angel investors also joined the round.

This seed funding will enable Intelligent AI to further the development of its underwriting platform. The InsurTech company is also looking to hire more staff, drive global partnerships and expand beyond the UK and US.

The InsurTech company was created to help insurers accurately predict the risk on commercial properties through a cloud-based solution. Its platform leverages 300 data points, ranging from satellite image analysis, real-time weather and flood risks to crime rates and fire service response times.

It claims AI and advanced data analytics empower insurers, brokers and their clients to better identify and track risks providing actionable insights that could save the commercial property sector hundreds of millions of pounds annually.

Intelligent AI is on a mission to save £500m per year in avoidable insurance claims for the UK property sector.

Intelligent AI CEO Anthony Peake said, “Lloyd’s property underwriters alone lost on average £800m a year between 2017 and 2021. It’s therefore imperative the industry moves away from a system based on incomplete, historical data, exacerbated by the fact that due to high costs, only 10% of properties are assessed by risk engineers.”

This seed funding comes just months after Intelligent AI secured £400,000 in its pre-seed round. The investment was led by RLC Ventures and followed its graduation from the Lloyds Lab Accelerator.

In other InsurTech news, FinTech Vitesse, climate risk insurance platform Yokahu and parametric InsurTech FloodFlash recently signed a new partnership. Their goal is to jointly support climate vulnerable communities after extreme weather events.
