Strategy

Kane intends to continue focusing on smaller, innovative carriers with niche products.

Kane will continue to avoid work in labor-intensive processes such as claims, recoveries, and death claims. The company is focused on performing highly software-dependent processes.

Open book business will remain Kane's primary focus. It has recently launched a new product line which enables online applications for life insurance on a straight-through processing basis through to premium collection. API enabled fully digital solutions are also a major area of focus in the Unit-Linked space.

Kane is further investing in its proprietary platform delivery capabilities to drive future growth, by developing products in underwriting and reinsurance workflows. It is also looking to optimize its regulatory upgrades for local market applicability. In future, Kane wants to offer the IMS platform on a SaaS basis.

The roadmap for IMS includes integration of micro-services to facilitate integration capabilities with channels and with databases, payment processing (credit card, debit card in Europe and ME), and integration with banks for automated premium processing and integration of the carrier's general ledger.

Kane's focus for expansion is on carriers located in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa.
