Delivering Automotive Risk Intelligence through the provision of data, benchmarking, and insight.
We share automotive risk intelligence with our Members, the automotive industry, and other stakeholders for the advancement of vehicle safety, security, and sustainability. We generate data by conducting research throughout our network of facilities, and combine this with data provided by our Members and other third parties. We analyse it for the sustainable adoption of new vehicle technology, and our data-driven intelligence informs the insight we share with insurers, vehicle manufacturers, and government to ensure the best experience for all road users.
The starting point is always safety, security, and sustainable repair. Our research is then further structured into strategic programmes, each with its guiding strategy, goals, and objectives – to build automotive risk intelligence and feed our products and services.
ACE+ is a framework of strategic programmes which direct our research in an agile, consistent, and agenda led manner to provide automotive risk intelligence and practical interventions across the insurance workflow through Thatcham Research products, services, and influence.
Each programme has a set of current and future strategic goals which define our priorities as a business, ensuring that we remain current and focused on actionable output.
Changes in technology, regulation, policy, environmental imperatives, and the commercial and operational landscape of the automotive industry all create increasing challenges across the entire insurance ecosystem.
We examine these changes through the strategic lenses of safety, security, and sustainability to target our research and analysis, and our data and benchmarking criteria form and inform our automotive risk intelligence.
