EigenRisk (pronounced “eye-ghen-risk”) was founded in 2014 with the mission to help risk managers, brokers and insurers better plan, monitor and respond to natural catastrophes worldwide.

Our customers, spanning four continents, use EigenPrism, our software-as-a-service platform, every day to lower their loss costs, improve their operating efficiency and build stronger relationships with their colleagues, clients and counter-parties.

Why EigenPrism?

There is a significant gap between the potential and the implementation of analytics in catastrophe risk management.

For most in the risk management and insurance community, catastrophe risk analytics is still associated with “running the models,” typically an annual exercise involving:

  • static exposure snapshots,
  • questionable data quality,
  • manually-intensive processes, and
  • disconnected one-off tools.

Useful data sits trapped inside spreadsheets or complex modeling databases. Reports take days to generate and follow-up questions go unanswered due to time-constraints. As a consequence, analytics is still mostly under-utilized in risk management decisions.

EigenPrism brings catastrophe risk analytics closer to the point of decision making.

EigenPrism was designed from the ground-up to help users gain control over all their catastrophe data, analytics and reporting in a single environment. Users can:

  • Manage exposure data, either manually or via APIs
  • Access connected analytical modules anywhere, anytime
  • Configure alerts and automated reports for efficiency
  • Share their data, visuals, insights or reports with colleagues and counter-parties

As a result, users are empowered to make faster, smarter decisions during live events, insurance renewals or strategic planning exercises.
