Aurora, in collaboration with CodeEast, secured £495,704 to develop a bespoke, adaptable indirect loss insurance product


To develop the first SME-facing indirect losses insurance product, offering better support during periods of indirect loss for SMEs across the UK and beyond.


Business insurance is designed to protect businesses against loss due to events outside the owner's control. Traditional insurance is only available when a business has been damaged directly, yet indirect losses can be huge. This can be catastrophic for SMEs, many of whom do not have the cash resources to remain operational in these circumstances. Traditional insurance focuses on indemnity for physical damage while newer forms of insurance, such as parametric insurance, need a specific loss trigger and can therefore only cover one single risk. 


Addressing the challenge, the project will develop a bespoke, adaptable indirect loss insurance product for SMEs. The project utilises the unique partnerships with Mastercard, Codat and AXA to create an algorithmic trading model to rapidly calculate a business' exposure and develop an automatically triggered claims process. Simultaneously, unique data insights will be used to estimate losses and prevent fraudulent claims.
