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 product development. Existing actuarial modelling tools are cumbersome to use. The collaboration process is time-consuming and labor-intensive, and actuarial insights aren’t used to their maximum advantage. 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.
