New Pure Risk, Term Assure Product Launch

Ai-London have released a fully configurable Pure Risk, Term Assured product on our PlatformONE Rapid Product Launch platform. The platform allows product owners or project managers to rapidly create, test and launch new, fully-digital Pure Risk products in a matter of weeks. If you’d like to know more, we provide a free 60 day trial where you will be able to configure and test a product, with the support of an Insurtech Analyst.

Ai-London’s experience of helping LP&I providers launch over a thousand products on four continents has been packaged into PlatformONE. Guided by a Product Configurator – and with the support of a dedicated Insurtech Analyst – a product owner can create a new product that will function seamlessly throughout its lifecycle in under an hour. 

What’s in the product? For an overview, take a look at our Pure Risk Product Guide, or for greater detail you can read the Pure Risk – Term Assurance Supported Features document. In this blog, we’ll take you through all the configurable product features that are built into the Pure Risk product on PlatformONE. We think we’ve found the sweet spot between building in a complete feature set, flexible configuration, sensible defaults, and total control for Product Managers.

Currently, the platform offers Level Term Assurance. Decreasing Term Assurance will be included in Version 2 in Spring 2021. The Product Configurator allows Terminal Illness and Partial & Total Disability to be offered as additional coverages to the term assurance. Each additional coverage has its own premium computed. Minimum and Maximum age for the policy, in years, at entry, minimum and maximum duration,  and minimum and maximum sum assured limits for each offered coverage are all configurable.

There may be up to two (2) Lives Assured for the Policy. In case of 1 Life Assured, the life basis will be Single Life. In the case of 2 Lives Assured, the life basis will be Joint Life First Death Basis. Benefit is payable in the event of a claim on the first life assured.
