As a business actuary, Montoux’s founder and Co-CEO Klaas Stijnen saw first-hand the challenges experienced by life insurers when it came modernizing key actuarial processes, and so Montoux was born.
In essence Montoux provides a step change in life insurance. We combine data science and actuarial science to develop innovative, deep tech software solutions that solve difficult problems for life insurers. We focus on empowering our customers to make evidence-based decisions that drive more value (in all its forms) for both their business and customers.
