Future-proofing life insurance

Montoux is the leading decision science platform specifically designed for life and health insurers, enabling our customers to harness the power of AI to operationalize data-driven decision making.

Working as an actuary, Montoux’s founder Klaas Stijnen was frustrated by the lack of modern, flexible tools available to product and pricing teams in life insurance. He decided to do something about it, and eight years ago, that something became Montoux. Today, our customers include several of the world’s leading insurance providers across the United States, Asia Pacific, and the United Kingdom.

We are strong believers in the power and potential of decision science, particularly when it comes to solving some of the insurance industries most stubborn problems. Our tools are designed to improve the decisions life and health insurers make on a regular basis.

Our powerful platform is grounded in actuarial science, data science, and AI-based optimization algorithms, helping insurers drive significant value in new business and in-force portfolios while allowing them to operate smarter, faster, and leaner.
