QBE Insurance Group has invested in US artificial intelligence firm RiskGenius, with QBE executive Bob James saying it will help the insurer to develop new products more rapidly. The investment in RiskGenius is the first to be made via QBE’s $US50 million ($A64.85 million) "insurtech" fund. QBE CEO John Neal said at the time of the fund’s launch in March that its investments would focus on data analytics.
