STANDING ON THE FRONTIER WHERE INSURANCE AND TECHNOLOGY MEET
A Unique Holistic Insurance Concept
Innovation is always a must but now it’s getting unavoidable!
There are too many signs that traditional insurance business is lagging and needs a
drastic review of the current business models;
What we see so far in all possible trials to innovate is mostly more of the same but
in a different guise.
This presentation introduces an entirely new concept!

Concept - Customer Value Proposition
This concept is called Sunsurance©
and offers the customer:
A personalized cover/financial offer for her/his complete household and the
associated lifestyle including relevant services.
Based on a minimum core (sun) and instant automatic data driven expansion in
case required or desired (beams). Where the customer is fully in (mobile) control.
Premium and fees will be charged monthly in arrears in line with the risks actually
exposed to and within an agreed bandwidth.

A brighter life with Sunsurance©
“Insurance is a cornerstone of modern life.
Without insurance, many aspects of today’s society and economy could not function.
The insurance industry provides the cover for economic, climatic, technological,
political and demographic risks that enables individuals to go about their daily life and
companies to operate, innovate and develop.”

Insurance Europe is the European insurance and reinsurance federation. Through its 34 member bodies - the national insurance associations -
Insurance Europe represents all types of insurance and reinsurance undertakings, e.g. pan-European companies, monoliners, mutuals and SMEs.
Insurance Europe, which is based in Brussels, represents undertakings that account for around 95% of total European premium income.
Insurance makes a major contribution to Europe’s economic growth and development. European insurers generate premium income of over €1
100bn, employ nearly one million people and invest almost €7 500bn in the economy.
That is not going to change…
The Game is the Same
April 2015 Sunsurance©2015 11
Well-known and understood risks
Game is the Same
Insurance is the transfer of risk. It transfers the risk of financial losses
as a result of specified but unpredictable events from an individual or
entity to an insurer in return for a fee or premium. If a specified event
occurs, the individual or entity can claim compensation or a service
from the insurer.
Insurance is therefore a means of reducing uncertainty. In return for
buying an insurance policy for a smaller, known premium, the
possibility of a larger loss is removed. By pooling premiums and
insured events, the financial impact of an event that could be
disastrous for one policyholder is spread among a wider group.
The insured receives a contract, called the insurance policy, which
details the conditions and circumstances under which the insured will
be financially compensated or serviced.
In a later stage
Banking & Pension
The practice of appraising and controlling risk.
Compliance & Fairness
Sunsurance© is compliant with and supports the current insurance principles, like:
The risk must be definable and financially measurable;
The risk should be random and independent;
The insured must have an insurable interest;
The insurer must be able to calculate a fair premium for the risk;
The likelihood of the risk must be calculable;
There should be limited risk of catastrophically large losses;
Coverage is generally only for indemnity (no profit allowed);

Compliance & Fairness - Different Underwriting
Differentiation is the fairest way to ensure that the premium charged accurately reflects the risk. It is also
the fairest way to ensure that a maximum number of people can be offered insurance at an affordable
Risk-based pricing encourages insurers to innovate so that they can compete more effectively both on
price and on products which is in favor of the customer;
Each policyholder should pay a fair premium according to the risk of loss that they bring to the pool;
Reduce moral hazard, adverse selection and fraud.
On those last 4 Sunsurance© will make however the difference from an underwriting standpoint
1. Risk based,
2. accurate and
3. fair pricing,
4. while reducing moral hazard, adverse selection and fraud.

Usage Based Insurance (UBI)
Common practice so far is that the probability of a certain claim is determined by
analyzing historical data from homogeneous groups representing similar risks and by
forward-looking risk analysis.
So in fact the traditional premium is based on historical data from a group in which the
customer (insured) is classified.
Real and accurate data will be used as much as possible to move away from rating by
proxy to rating by real life (so called UBI).
April 2015 Sunsurance©2015 14
Fairness in combinations
Other issues to deal with:
1. Overlaps in products which means confusion and double (or more) premium;
2. Cross product risks (e.g. if the family goes on vacation by plane there is a drastic
shift in various risks);
3. The various risks and insurance needs change constantly depending on lifestyle,
events and composition of household.

Taking the Customer Serious
And then the customer, our client.
Current insurance practice from a consumer standpoint is:
Low interest product, a commodity (easy to exchange);
Hardly offering modern tools (Gen Y & Z);
Rated with low satisfaction and low positive experience;
Even distrusted (as a financial service).
So there is a lot of work to do!

Sun . Insure . Uninsure
With the (flexible) core normal life is insured.
The beams allow to insure and un-insure depending on the deviations in life.
This can be done:
automatically by data transmitted
or by click
Based on lifestyle and requirements the
customer can select out of 3 luxury levels:
1. Yellow (standard sunshine)
2. Orange (some more glow)
3. Gold (really shiny)
