2018 Events - Celebrating 10 Years of TANC

2018 marked the 10th anniversary of TANC events. As ever, we had a fantastic line up of events to celebrate this (see details below).

There was also a TANC feature story published in the March 2018 edition of the Actuary magazine.

From Generalised Linear Models to Intelligent Voice & AI … and Building 3 Businesses in Between!

Presented by Mike Brockman, ThingCo

15th November 2018

With close to 4 decades of experience in the motor insurance sector, Mike Brockman is truly one of the world’s experts in motor insurance.

In this talk, Mike described the early actuarial challenges to motor insurance pricing and the development of Generalised Linear Models as a pricing tool. Having spent several years as a Pricing Actuary, Mike co-founded EMB in 1993, an actuarial consultancy that grew to having 11 offices around the world with more than 300 staff. Mike was instrumental in developing new pricing techniques and their applications to risk and demand modelling within the actuarial profession world-wide.

He then went on to talk about telematics and why he created insurethebox, the world’s first telematics-only motor insurer, selling more than 800,000 black box policies during this time, and writing more than $1bn Gross Written Premium.

Having sold insurethebox to the MS&AD Group, Mike has moved on to his third new venture, ThingCo, with a plan to take telematics to the next level. ThingCo is developing B2C, B2B and B2B2C solutions by making use of data from telematics, camera/sensor, ADAS and Intelligent Voice. This in-car technology can collect more than 1,000 pieces of information per second.
