Company history

Intelligent Life Technologies Ltd is a New Zealand-based company that specializes in the design and deployment of innovative distribution solutions for the life and health insurance industry, featuring electronic underwriting solutions and straight-through-processing.

In 2007 Intelligent Life implemented its first product; a cloud-based distribution platform for life insurance, offering fully underwritten policies to consumers at the lowest price in the market, issued instantly online. When launched, the platform was a world-first of its type. It was initially rolled out under license in New Zealand for life insurer Pinnacle Life, enabling Pinnacle to more than double its in-force business in just three years. Review our client websites to see the innovation and consumer focus the Intelligent Life platforms deliver.

The underwriting rules are owned by Intelligent Life and supported by reinsurance groups Hannover-Re. Intelligent Life has over the course of the past 10 years developed and refined its rules for Life, Disability, Critical Illness and Health insurances.
