One of the more interesting strategic partnerships in the insurance world is between AIG and quant hedge fund Two Sigma. The official agreement between these two organizations involves their Attune small business insurance joint venture, which also includes Hamilton Insurance. But in a recent Nikkei Asian Review interview with AIG’s newly installed CEO Brian Duperreault as well as in other comments he’s made recently, it seems clear that Duperreault is attempting to transform the entire AIG narrative. The new one positions the giant insurer as a firm that makes data science and technology central to its underwriting processes.
