AI-Powered Insurtech Lemonade Announces Reinsurance Program Being Renewed on Good Terms

Lemonade (NYSE: LMND), the digital insurance company powered by AI and social impact, announced that its reinsurance program has been “renewed in good time and on good terms.”

The Lemonade program is “led by the same tier-one carriers as the expiring and was oversubscribed on all dimensions.”

The centerpiece of the program “is 55% quota share protection, the same level as the expiring coverage.”

The variable ceding commissions are “projected to be roughly equivalent to those enjoyed under the outgoing agreements.” The program covers “all Lemonade businesses globally, now also including Metromile, acquired by Lemonade in 2022.”

Daniel Schreiber, Lemonade co-CEO and cofounder, said:

“It says a great deal when some of the world’s largest and most respected reinsurers choose to stake their capital on the performance of our business. These partners allow us to operate in a very capital light mode, and focus our resources on expanding our customer base across all of our products and geographies, while harnessing our technologies to get ever more efficient, and ever better at matching rate to risk.”

The renewed program is “augmented by some new structures as well.”

For one, Lemonade has “formed a new risk-bearing entity, Lemonade Re, in the Cayman Islands.”

Lemonade plans “to hold some of its retained risk in Lemonade Re.”

Similarly, Lemonade has “established a captive cell at a Bermuda transformer, and plans to utilize it to retain most of its windstorm exposure.”

While windstorm reinsurance capacity was available, “this structure was determined to offer a materially better cost/benefit profile.”

The extant program expires at midnight “on June 30, 2023, at which time the new program will go into effect for a standard 12-month term.”

The company’s financial expectations “for Q2 and for the full year 2023, as communicated in the Q1 ‘23 Lemonade Letter to Shareholders, remain unchanged.”

As noted in the update, Lemonade says it “offers renters, homeowners, car, pet, and life insurance.”

Powered by artificial intelligence and social impact, Lemonade’s full stack insurance carriers in the US and the EU replace brokers and bureaucracy with bots and machine learning, aiming for zero paperwork and instant everything.”

A Certified B-Corp, Lemonade gives unused premiums “to nonprofits selected by its community, during its annual Giveback.”

Lemonade is currently “available in the United States, Germany, the Netherlands, France, and the UK, and continues to expand globally.”
