Kin Insurance Leverages Big Data to Give Fair and Fast Home Insurance Pricing to Georgia Homeowners

By The Associated Press

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 2, 2018--Kin Insurance, an insurtech startup that leverages big data to provide fast, fair, and affordable insurance for homeowners, announced today its expansion into Georgia. Kin uses big data analysis to simplify the complicated and time-consuming process of obtaining homeowners insurance.

Kin aggregates data from public and private sources (e.g., real estate listings and building records, as well as satellite and drone photography) to provide address-specific home insurance quotes for homeowners. Kin ensures every policy makes the most sense for each individual home and that no customer is paying more than they should for insurance.

Applicants simply enter their address, and Kin pulls more than 5,000 data points – over 100 times as many as traditional insurance companies do – to instantly provide an accurate and fair quote.

“It’s irresponsible for insurance companies to price coverage without using every bit of available data, but most simply lump homeowners together by ZIP Code,” said Kin CEO Sean Harper. “We can save people substantial time, money, and confusion while getting them accurately priced coverage that fits their specific needs.”

In addition to faster, more accurate pricing, Kin gives customers a number of other benefits. Instead of the outdate and time-consuming process of manual paper applications completed with insurance brokers in person, Kin offers an all-online application supported by personal customer service.

Kin currently operates in Florida and Georgia and plans to make its coverage available nationally. The company recently closed a $13 million funding round led by August Capital.
