Insurance fraud is a crime. According to estimations of the Association of German Insurers (Gesamtverband der deutschen Versicherer), the annual loss amounts to 4 billion euros. For corporate customers, the losses are often particularly high. The use of Palturai BusinessGraph offers insurers innovative possibilities to quickly and consistently track down…
Many practical examples show that the fraudulent behavior of individual “trouble spots” in a business network affects their affiliated business partners. Ultimately, you too may be directly affected by these risks.

How does this work? Take a look at these dynamic features
Perhaps the company belongs to an undesirable industry, or there is a case of fraud or litigation?
You determine which risks are marked.
As a result, all colleagues see the striking red icon and are briefly informed about the respective risk type. Either directly in the company profile, in the network or in the investment structure.
This is where our Distance-to-Trouble algorithm comes into play. It calculates a risk score for each node in the network.
The "trouble maker" itself assumes the highest risk. Depending on the distance and type of relationship, the trouble maker then continues to infect its environment.
You too can determine risk scores for your network of business partners.
In our example of Technology SE you will be warned immediately by a yellow risk banner in the company profile.
This is because there are risk factors in the company's environment ("Network Risks").
See more details about network risks on the next pictures.
By the way, the banner is always displayed automatically as soon as insolvency or country risks or internal markings of "trouble makers" are present.
In our example case you can see the following:
Via a profit transfer agreement, Technology SE has a direct legal relationship with International Tobacco Ltd, your marked "trouble maker".
There are unusually many relationships with inactive companies in the network.
Numerous investments are located in high-risk countries.
With this detailed information you can now better assess whether the new partnership is acceptable for you on this basis or not.
A former CEO of Technology SE had a leading position in a company that is now inactive and was officially deleted.
A former board member is currently still the economic beneficiary of an active but insolvent company.
Here, too, you can benefit from comprehensive transparency, e.g. knowing exactly when which relationships existed with whom, or whether a controlling influence existed.
In our case, Technology SE holds shares in companies worldwide. Some of them are also located in countries that are officially assessed as having a high country risk.
On the world map you can see at a glance how many critical relationships go where worldwide.
In the detailed view you can also see beyond that,
- whether the relationships are direct/indirect,
- and which companies or persons are involved.
