New operational key figures for the Insurance Platform segment
Over the past few years, Hypoport has acquired a number of companies providing software solutions for the insurance industry and integrated them into the Hypoport network. It has also been developing the central SMART INSUR software platform since 2017. The sales focus in the Insurance Platform segment is on migrating the insurance portfolios that are largely still managed using the individual solutions of the acquired companies. The technical challenge is to transfer these portfolios - representing annual net premiums of around €8.6 billion - from the acquired companies' systems to the new SMART INSUR platform. The volume of €2.84 billion that had been migrated as at 31 March 2021 equates to a migration rate of over 30 per cent. The next step after the migration is to validate the migrated insurance portfolios by checking them against the insurance companies' legacy systems, which are linked to SMART INSUR. This validation process has already begun. Validated portfolios can be managed on the SMART INSUR platform very efficiently, enabling the partners that are connected to it to adopt new business models such as automatized recommended actions for advisers or robo-advisory services. As at the end of March 2021, the validation rate had reached more than 15 per cent.
"Migrating the historical insurance portfolios, some of which have existed for decades, to the new, technically sophisticated SMART INSUR platform and validating them are very important steps in terms of both the usefulness of the platform's existing functionality and the new business models that can be established on the platform," says Stephan Gawarecki, member of the Hypoport SE Management Board responsible for the Insurance Platform segment, explaining the significance of the new key figure in the context of the insurance platform's development history. "Over the past few quarters, we have put everything in place from a legal and technical perspective to be able to move ahead with the structural migration. We are delighted with our platform's strong performance in the year to date."
Going forward, the new key figure 'policy premiums on the platform' will be published each quarter along with the other segments' operational key figures.
