Skyline Partners: the Parametric Catalyser
A London-headquartered Lloyd’s Lab graduate launched in 2018 and backed by private equity, Skyline Partners provides a parametric outsourcing platform that transforms data streams into attractive insurance products to generate genuine value. If you can imagine it, we can build it.
Skyline specialists collaborate with partners to identify the most appropriate data to tackle the risk
Many clients wish to build a parametric product around their own, unique data source. We can help to collect new data to support insurance products, and have access to a range of data – including satellite feeds and oceanographic information – to support your vision for a smarter insurance product.
Skyline experts structure, model, and price a parametric solution
Parametric products may be simple (event x triggers fixed payment y), or very much more complex. It is possible to develop structures with a variable payout based on event severity or duration, for example. Skyline has the knowledge and expertise to develop parametric solutions which meet insureds’ needs precisely.
Skyline identifies re/insurers to take on the risk, if required
Our partners are yours. We work with a range of risk carriers – including some of the world’s largest – that understand and have an appetite for parametric risk. And we know how to make parametric insurance products that appeal to them, in part by deploying our founder-level actuarial skills. We also work with some of the world’s leading brokers who provide our clients with distribution support.
Skyline helps everyone create an appropriate policy wording
Because parametric products are unlike conventional insurance, whole now contract wordings may be necessary. We at Skyline have extensive first-hand experience of parametric policies in action, as well as the broader industry knowledge necessary to get contract wordings right the first time, ensuring they cover the intended risks completely, but don’t capture surprises for risk carriers.
Skyline acts as underwriting agent (if required)
We maintain a fully licensed MGA which can be deployed on behalf of clients which do not have an underwriting function and do not wish to engage with third-party underwriters. The backbone of our underwriting approach is InsDex, Skyline’s proprietary data and insurance-risk analysis platform.
Skyline deploys the proprietary technology platform INSDEX for pricing and claims monitoring
Whether to support underwriting, to develop pricing and provide structure support, or daily in the computation of indices for the calculation of claims, InsDex is the technological tool which tames the power of big data to make it useful in day-to-day parametric insurance operations.
Skyline administers in-force policies, including independent aggregation monitoring claims calculation
As a full-service parametric insurance services provider, Skyline remains a critical business partner long after the first policies are sold. We provide complete support throughout the policy lifecycle, from pricing and quotation (including a quote & bind portal if needed), up to and including the administration and payment of claims, if necessary, with trusted payment solutions.
