Spire Global's reputation for valuable data is due to the company's large constellation of fully owned and operated satellites that offer data and analytics for parts of the world where collecting data is notoriously difficult. The company recently created Spire Maritime, which closed out 2018 with 160 percent year-over-year revenue growth. The new effort is pushing the Satellite AIS maritime segment forward with unique innovations in product creation.
John Lusk, GM, Spire Maritime, said this multi-billion-dollar market faces higher risks every day, whereby huge inefficiencies continue to prevent business improvements. This partnership with Concirrus will enable the company to create a platform where data is the prime enabler for improved maritime insurance performance.
Graham Libaert, Director of Alliances at Concirrus, noted that not all data is created equal and the company performs rigorous validation and due diligence on sources before deciding to integrate them into the firm's core machine learning models. Concirrus is excited to be working with the Spire Maritime team to provide the firm's customers with the best, most competitive information possible for pricing, underwriting, and risk management.
Note: Concirrus recently announced a partnership agreement with Meteomatics and a long-term withstanding relationship with IHS Markit.
