Insurers Can’t Predict The Next Climate Crises, But We Are Getting Close.

Extreme temperatures

Wildfires, hurricanes and extreme temperatures are contributing to $2.98 trillion in losses over the past decade.

Underwriting Platform

We use deep learning to deliver better protections for people and more stable returns for the insurance industry.

Transfer Risk

Kettle analyzes, holds and transfers risk to buyers who want to balance their portfolio.

How Reinsurance Works

Step One

Insurer

Customer

Step One

Insurers buy reinsurance
from Kettle.

Step One

We use our models to analyze their portfolios, and then charge them the calculated premium to reinsure their risk.

Step One

Because our models are more accurate, we can offer more competitive pricing.

KETTLE

Transfers Risk to Buyers

We transfer that risk to buyers through Kettleā€™s network market for capital markets, retros, and reinsurers.

We Outperform The Industry

Kettle’s proprietary machine learning algorithms use more than seven billion lines of satellite, weather, and ground truth data. These models use Swarm Neural Networks to find patterns that enable more accurate predictions, thereby reducing loss ratios.
