Pricing Analyst – Graduate Role


Prestige Underwriting Services Ltd is currently recruiting for a Pricing Analyst based at our Belfast HQ Office.

What We Do

The Pricing Department endeavours to place a price on insurance risks by fitting statistical models to historical data, attempting to predict the underlying claim costs associated with an insurance policy. Historical data is enriched with a host of external factors to complement the risk assessment of each policy, and consequently to price more accurately and competitively.

As well as the techniques used to price potential new business, a range of statistical methodologies are used to monitor the ongoing development of existing business to ensure we remain competitive in the market.
