Australia Property Intelligence

Highlight Stories


The Australian insurance sector has long contended with intense price competition. Adding to the challenge are the increasingly commoditised personal insurance products and record-breaking impacts from natural disasters. We also observed property insurance claims significantly above average. With limited access to reliable and accurate insurance exposure data, insurers need enhanced market strategies and underwriting performance to unlock sustainable growth in residential property portfolios and balance insurance portfolio performance.

At Swiss Re, we can help you enhance efficiency and decision making throughout the insurance value chain by harnessing the power of data, novel models and advanced analytics.


Power your decision-making with Australia Property Intelligence

Get actionable risk intelligence from relevant data and risk models to power your property insurance business.

We worked with our artificial intelligence partner to architect a property insurance modelling for residential properties in Australia. Building on our extensive risk experience and data, we built a state-of-the-art predictive model to enable property insurers to better understand their property risk exposure and identify segments for profitable growth.

The Property Intelligence platform facilitates comprehensive portfolio analysis and a detailed assessment of an insurer's property concentration risk.​ Working with the Australia Property Intelligence tool, an insurer can identify the risk characteristics of insurable properties in Australia, compare the risk profile of your portfolio to the market and learn about potential accumulation risks.
