Cytora and Relativity6 join forces to speed up commercial quotes with intelligent industry classification data

The partnership will enable Relativity6’s models to be used to enhance the underwriting process within Cytora.

NewYork, US; 15 December 2023: Cytora, the leading digital risk processing platform, and Relativity6, a provider of industry classification modelling, have announced a partnership which will enable Relativity6’s models to be used to enhance the underwriting process within Cytora.


The integration will provide commercial insurance underwriters away to more quickly process commercial quotes. This is facilitated by turning data from freeform text into standard industry classifications. For example, text which read ‘this company is a flower shop’ would automatically be labelled retail. Automation of this process saves underwriters a significant amount of time, enabling them to provide the right cover, price and product to customers at a much faster rate.  


Integration of data sources like Relativity6 directly into risk processing workflows enables insurers to digitise their core workflows, make better-informed decisions on risk and improve speed to market; enhancing broker and client experience.


Cytora’s platform enables insurers to operationalise data more broadly across their lines of business, including for risk clearance, onboarding and triage, and more effectively through their multi-step workflows from submission to quote, enabling underwriters to make faster, more informed decisions.


The integration follows a period of significant growth for Cytora, and the launch of the latest enhancement to the platform, leveraging LargeLanguage Models (LLMs) alongside Cytora’s proprietary AI to bring a new level of accuracy and efficiency to risk assessment and underwriting processes.


Juan de Castro, COO at Cytora: "At Cytora, our mission is to redefine workflows in the commercial insurance industry. Our partnership with Relativity6 and the integration of their trade attribution model into our platform represents a significant step towards achieving this goal. It equips insurers with a powerful resource for understanding and managing risks associated with businesses, allowing them to make more informed decisions and enhance their competitive position in the market."


Josh Lurie, COO at Relativity6; “We are laser focused on finding, classifying, and monitoring private companies and providing underwriters with the most relevant, accurate, and reliable data.
