Ivans Index is a data-driven report of current conditions and trends for premium renewal rate change of the most placed commercial lines of business in the insurance industry. Analyzing more than 120 million data transactions, the Ivans Index premium renewal rate change measures the premium difference year over year for a single consistent policy.
To derive the change in cost, Ivans uses policies that have the same insured, insurer, product type, policy number, expiration date, effective date and producing agency. For example, if an insured paid $1,000 for a policy last year and $1,023 this year, Ivans Index would state that as a premium renewal rate change of 2.3%. Ivans Index does not use exposure-based change or claims experience. Policies with anomaly exposure changes or claims experience are removed.
