The Digital Claims Record

An integrated platform

Accurate claims data is the best way for insurers to precisely underwrite risk. Asterias makes it easy for loss data to be recorded and shared.

Targeting aviation first, Asterias will become the ubiquitous source of specialty and property loss information – collected from source. This ensures that customer data is structured for efficient analysis from the first key, reducing workloads and automating data driven decision making.

Insurtech Gateway led their oversubscribed £600k Pre-Seed round in March 2024.

As it stands, loss data is fragmented, inconsistent and inaccessible. Too many singular interests and lack of external expertise means products are administrative and expensive. 


Asterias is a vendor agnostic platform that captures loss incidents and accident details in codified and structured software from the outset. All stakeholders (policyholders, brokers, loss adjustors, (re)insurers) will benefit from;

  1. Digitised process saving time and cost 
  2. Granular data at source 
  3. Dynamic reporting 
  4. Proprietary and secure data transfer

“From the outset, we knew that Insurtech Gateway were the partner we were looking for. A dedicated insurtech structure with experts from industry and investment means that we can access guidance where we need it and receive invaluable input in strategy and sector strength.” 

Andrew Walker, Founder at Asterias

“Fractured and inaccessible data is frustrating for everyone in the claims value chain. Asterias is standardising the whole administration process and creating a single point of truth. We have seen a couple of similar companies emerging in Property Management, so we are excited to help Asterias start in aviation.”
