Data is everywhere: good data, partial data, valuable data, bad data. Insurance Post’s David Worsfold reports on the need for insurers to measure and price risks but asks whether they take enough care in assessing the quality and provenance of the data they are using and whether their processes are sufficiently robust.

The bigger the decision the larger the consequences of getting it wrong – but also the greater the benefits of getting it right.”
