“iPipeline was approached by several carriers about providing this unique industry service for years. We finally decided to take this offering to the market place after conducting a survey with key industry carriers. Under our new Data Service Offering initiative, we are providing quoting, apply, and in-force data elements for carrier analysis in an anonymized fashion, so neither personally identifiable information nor carrier identifiers or product names are available,” said Tim Wallace, CEO, iPipeline. “The life insurance industry is a maturing market, so growth hinges on better understanding the buyer demographics and purchasing patterns. We believe this one-of-a-kind information will be invaluable in helping to support the industry’s underwriting, strategic planning, and business development initiatives as well as the collective advancement of the industry.”

“The Life insurance industry manages an incredible amount of information about its customers. It is a source of great opportunity to better leverage this data for so many areas, from strategic planning, product development, and underwriting to sales to service,” said Tom Scales, Research Director, Celent. “Data analytics is a critical element in understanding risks, demographic preferences, and designing new products for today’s buyers. Companies, like iPipeline, who offer access to rich industry data are fueling this necessary science.”

The new Data Service offering provides North American carriers with access to 77 million quote requests, 1 billion quote responses, 4.2 million application records, and 12.7 million in-force records. The anonymized information includes specific demographic groups, premium paid by coverage amounts, underwriting/health classes, periods of coverage, specific geographies, pending case patterns and time progressions for all key activities, and much more to signal purchasing trends and buyer dynamics by population segments.

Atairos Group has reached an agreement to acquire Plano, Texas-based college sports licensor Learfield.

Atairos Group is the Bryn Mawr and New York-based PE fund backed by Comcast and headed by former Comcast CFO Michael Angelakis.

Terms were not disclosed, but earlier reports suggested the bidding was in the $1 billion plus range. Prior to Comcast, Angelakis was a senior executive with Learfield seller Providence Equity. Atairos was reported to have beaten out three other bidder including TPG Capital, majority owner of Hollywood agency CAA.

Earlier this year, Atairos made a $250 million investment in Groupon.

Also this year, Atairos teamed with former Citigroup CEO Vikram S. Pandit to form a new financial services company.

Atairos was launched this year with $4 billion in committed capital from Comcast.

Atairos is often seeking long-term synergies with Comcast in its investments, as was indicated after its Groupon investment. Learfield may have some fit with Comcast's now wholely-owned Comcast Spectacor unit.
