Introducing AIR’s Model Builder
Custom views of risk can differentiate your business, but custom models—and their bespoke modeling platforms—can be prohibitively resource-intensive to develop, integrate, and maintain. AIR is committed to simplifying the custom model implementation process to make it easy for insurers, reinsurers, brokers, and other model developers to deploy their own views of risk into multiple workflows.
Watch this webinar to learn how our newly released Model Builder™ enables you to develop your own custom models and use them in Touchstone®, taking advantage of its enterprise-grade analytics and powerful financial engine. You’ll learn how to define the frequency and severity of events, construct custom damage functions, and assemble them to create your own model for any region or peril.
