360F and SBCN Announce Strategic Partnership in South Korea
This deal will localize 360-ProVestment® to integrate with the life insurers in South Korea.
16 December 2019, South Korea/Singapore – 360F, the trailblazing insurtech behind the behavioral finance-driven autopilot for financial happiness “360-ProVestment®”, and SBCN, leading fintech firm in South Korea for its artificial intelligence and big data financial applications, are proud to announce a software development and distribution partnership today. The co-operation will accelerate 360F’s global footprint in East Asia and advance its A.I. development.
As a start, both companies will focus efforts in localizing 360-ProVestment® to integrate with the life insurers in South Korea. 360F’s flagship product enables financial advice to not only be optimized for insurance and investments but also measurable in the context of the end customer’s self-defined financial happiness.
360-ProVestment® hyper-personalises the financial advice systematically and views the customer as a unique individual. It integrates itself into the financial institution’s existing customer journey, and then transforms customer data into a mathematical utility function unique to the customer. This function reflects the customer’s financial needs, aspirations, lifestyle preferences and constraints such as money and time.
This function allows a numerical and personalized score, which is called “HappiU” to be associated with the candidate products and/or solutions’ effect on the customer’s financial resilience and happiness, which they have defined for themselves. With this, the application goes on to prepare scenarios for stress testing.
360-ProVestment® treats risk as a statistical and probability concept. It constructs on average 3,000,000 multi-factor scenarios over the customer’s planning duration. These scenarios are based on the customer’s own mortality and morbidity risk probabilities and market risk exposure, using their input on factors such as their age and gender, and comparing their profiles with actuarial data.
360-ProVestment® then stress-tests the millions of possibilities within seconds to construct a financial solution that not only matches the customer’s preferences, but also yields the highest fulfilment in terms of their own self-defined financial resilience and financial freedom. The customer is free to explore alternative scenarios – all of which are based on his or her own data – before settling on what they personally find most perfect for them.
Meanwhile, SBCN is reputable for its real-time big data processing and A.I. strategy generation, and development capabilities to meet the needs of the financial institutions.
