DATA DRIVEN ASSET INTELLIGENCE
Sciemus is a data and analytics company that provides, for the first time, fact-based insights into sectors that have previously relied on qualitative opinion.

We focus on inherently complex assets in sectors where data is hard to obtain: Space, Property, and Thermal, Wind, and Solar power generation.
Our fact-based approach delivers best-in-class underwriting performance and provides ground-breaking strategic insights into asset performance.

CEO

THE ORIGINS OF SCIEMUS
Andre Finn and Neil Fleming met whilst undertaking Doctoral studies at Oxford University. Their work on knowledge led strategies led them to the conclusion that satellite underwriting decisions were being based on subjective opinion instead of facts.

Very surprised, they felt there had to be a better way – making underwriting decisions based how these complex systems had actually performed previously – allowing for fact-based risk understanding.

After identifying QinetiQ as a leading expert in spacecraft reliability, through their work for the UK MOD, and their extensive reliability database going back over 40 years of spaceflight, Andre and Neil went to them for a proposal to utilise that data. Following the acceptance of that proposal, Sciemus was subsequently founded in 2002, and development commenced to build the Sciemus Space Risk Assessment Tool or “SpaceRAT” – to process and interpret that data.
Since underwriting commenced in 2007, Sciemus Space has attained a loss ratio of <3% on over $200M of written premium, far exceeding market performance.

Sciemus has since applied this methodology to thermal power and renewables and is rolling out the concept to other sectors.

Upon engaging investors and operators as part of the underwriting process, Sciemus was asked how we could apply our data and modelling capabilities to better understand asset behaviour. Sciemus Consulting services was subsequently launched in 2012.
Sciemus is made up of some of the brightest minds in the industry
