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.
Klaas is a specialist financial modeler, business actuary, and consultant with over a decade of experience working with some of the world’s largest insurance brands in Europe and Asia, including PwC and Deloitte. When not Co-steering the Montoux ship, you'll probably find Klaas taking advantage of the nearest swell.
