A recent study by Martin Eling, Irina Gemmo, Danjela Guxha, and Hato Schmeiser, titled «Big Data, Risk Classification, and Privacy in Insurance Markets,» has been published in the Geneva Risk and Insurance Review. The study delves into the transformative impact of new technologies and big data analytics tools on the insurance industry.

The authors propose a framework for analyzing the trade-off between the accuracy of risk classification and the incentives provided to policyholders to share private data. Furthermore, the study examines the conditions under which using policyholders’ private data to improve risk classification accuracy is profitable for insurers.
