  1. 1. NH Hotels Milanofiori, Assago (MI) - 18 Oct. 13 Business Analysis in Insurance – Antifraud Unit Sergio Besana, Antifraud Unit, Insurance Company Luigi Pantarotto, B.A. Leader, CBAP®, SAS Institute
  2. 2. Fraud  Insurance fraud is a specific case of fraud, which is characterized by being devised against the insurer, with the intent to fraudulently obtain some benefit or advantage to which they are not otherwise entitled. It is widespread in Italy and often not enough sanctioned by social disapproval. The Italian Penal Code, due to the social significance of the phenomenon, has therefore provided the specific crime of insurance fraud (Art 640 C.P.).  Over recent years, a new awareness of the dangers connected to fraud has developed. Organized crime rings can also be involved in insurance fraud, sometimes carrying out schemes that are very complex. "If you see fraud and don't shout fraud, you are a fraud"Nassim Taleb, Antifragile: Things That Gain From Disorder (2012) 2 © International Institute of Business Analysis
  3. 3. Italy, a Virtuous Country ?  A percentage of 2.04% is a given believable?  A comparison with the data from UK (€ 2.2 billion) shows the statistics do not depict the Italian phenomenon in its entirety  Data published by IVASS (Italian Insurance Authority) in 2011 reporting scams officially ascertained and reported by insurance companies operating in Italy indicates only 54,000 fraudulent claims UK USA France Italy 10% 9% 5% The Italian data can not be regarded as a trusted! Indeed, fraud identified, but not contrasted, and those "hidden" - namely perpetrated, but not discovered and verified - are not counted.  Conclusion: this percentage only displays the tip of the iceberg 2% 3 © International Institute of Business Analysis
  4. 4. Impacts on Insurance Companies  Lines of business most affected by fraudulent phenomena  Motor Third Party Liability (TPL)  Bodily injury: driver injury, injury to third parties (carried, pedestrians). Of particular importance is the phenomenon concerning the claim of personal injury often non-existent (the so-called "whiplash effect", or similar micro injuries) or injuries suffered in an autonomous way and later connected to a traffic accident never really happened  Also significant is the number of frauds relating to Property and Liability policies, or accident and health policies, which carry a greater impact in economic terms (compensations put in reserve are higher) 4 © International Institute of Business Analysis
  5. 5. Fraud Management: Organizational Models  Following the changes in Italian law of 2012, every insurance company must have an anti-fraud unit. A research by CETIF, 2013, shows that the key success factors in counteracting fraud arise from:  adequate training of employees  adequate level of sensitivity of the indicators of fraud and alerts adopted  effectiveness of policies and corporate guidelines  effectiveness of computer tools available to the claims settlement network / fraud analysis unit The detection of fraudulent behavior through analysis of the indicators of fraud, of recurring names and links between the entities involved (damaged, lawyers, body shops, other companies accidents), insurance policies, and the location of events is a critical success factor 5 © International Institute of Business Analysis
  6. 6. Importance of Organizational Models and Antifraud Information Systems  Fraud management models The more effective patterns of fraud management are those based on a high level of maturity of both the organizational model and information systems These include: Fraud management responsibility over the entire cycle of the policy or claim, transferring the case management to a centralized Fraud Unit Data on all cases of suspected fraud up to date, with good quality and frequency Information systems that provide integration with relevant internal and external databases to the insurance company Setting out a detailed system of rules that feed a alerting system for the reporting of suspected cases 6 © International Institute of Business Analysis
