Reinsurance is a world most never see. Predicting and protecting from a future that might never arise, quantifying things others never dream possible, all in the dance of the deal. We did it, we loved it, and got frustrated by it.
When it works reinsurance is thrilling, and sees people use creative intelligence to protect against improbable odds. Safeguarding the few who safeguard the many.
When it doesn’t, reinsurance can be elitist and exhausting. Bureaucracy runs amok, becoming an endless and inefficient combination of protectionism, pretence and paperwork.
It’s ironic that those who anticipate and take risks seem so averse to change. Yet it’s an industry virtually untouched by technological innovation. Insiders don’t go far enough. Outsiders don’t get it at all.
So we set to work, with a potent combination of reinsurance, actuarial, and software engineering talent determined to build a groundbreaking solution for the pain points in our industry. We’re daring to step outside of tradition.
The result is Supercede: an intuitive, essential, all-in-one reinsurance platform that lays the groundwork for your great work.
