086 Protecting Families Through Machine Learning-Led Client Retention with Neeraja Rasmussen, Spyglaz


Some people say that life insurance is one of the noblest gifts for others. A person who purchases a policy usually won’t benefit from it – but their surviving spouse and children will. Everyone in the insurance industry wants the policy to be in force when it’s really necessary.

Unfortunately, the person who purchased the policy may let the policy lapse – sometimes intentionally and other times not. Today, Neeraja Rasmussen, CEO of Spyglaz, and Susan Zophy, Chief Service Officer for Nassau Financial Group Financial talk about their innovation partnership, and the value of leveraging machine learning to predict future customer behavior and needs. The discussion also offers a lens into the challenging process of finding and keeping new customers as a startup. Listen along as we discuss the three things a startup has to do in order to become a valued tool and accepted partner.
