Future-proofing life insurance

As a business actuary, Montoux’s founder and CEO Klaas Stijnen saw first-hand the challenges experienced by the insurance industry when it came to premium development. Existing actuarial modeling tools are cumbersome. The collaboration process is labor-intensive and time-consuming, inhibiting actuarial insights. This stifles innovation and eats up precious time for getting products to market. Klaas knew there had to be a better way, and so Montoux was born.

In essence Montoux provides a step change in life insurance premium development.
