The VERIFY IVM is the result of a collaboration between UK residential property data experts WhenFresh and CLS, one of the UK’s leading MGAs.
CLS are managing a panel of AA-rated insurers bringing billions of pounds of cover to this new and exciting property valuation market.
The key to the VERIFY IVM solution is the triangulation of 3 independent valuation models: WhenFresh’s proprietary VSM (Virtual Survey Model) & EPM (Estimated Price Model) and the lender’s preferred AVM (Automated Valuation Model). These 3 values are triangulated with each other and compared with the live market price agreed between buyer & seller.
When all these figures match within an acceptable tolerance the valuation can be confirmed to the lender and backed by AA-rated insurance, to indemnify the lender against future losses in the event that the valuation proves to be inaccurate at a later stage
Over 2 years and more than 20,000 actual property transactions of rigorous testing in conjunction with major lenders and a leading insurer on the CLS panel, the VERIFY IVM valuations were proven to be over 99% accurate.

07 Feb 2020: Joanne Atkin of Mortgage Strategy Gazette reports on why M:Qube is different…
M:Qube is about to launch into the mortgage market but it is no ordinary lender – it’s a fintech business first and a mortgage lender second…
… Tony Connell, chief product officer, with a tech background at FICO, Visa Europe, Experian and Royal Mail, explained how the system is a data driven process with real time decisioning: “First, we assesses the property the borrower wishes to buy.
“The system accesses 140 points of data on a property using various sources such as four AVM providers, the Land Registry, Rightmove and Whenfresh to gain a myriad of information. This would include the method of construction, square footage, number of rooms and floors, flood and subsidence risk and so on.
“This gives a clearer picture as to which lenders would lend on the property and if indeed it is mortgageable. Data on the borrower is then collected, categorised and verified followed by real time underwriting.”…

Friday November 22nd 2019 saw the prestigious Insurance Times Awards event at the Grosvenor House Hotel, with WhenFresh beating 6 other finalists to scoop Gold in the ‘Excellence in Technology – Service Provider’ category.
WhenFresh CEO & co-Founder Mark Cunningham (proudly sporting his Movember moustache!) was delighted to receive this coveted award from Richard Beaven, Chief Operating Officer of award-sponsor Brightside Insurance, alongside comedian Greg Davies, who hosted the event.
In announcing WhenFresh as Gold award winners, Richard Beaven reported the judges had said: “WhenFresh impressed with their clear business model. We love what they do and they aren’t afraid to go in a different direction.”
It was a strong field, with the other 6 shortlisted finalists: Cytora (who were awarded Silver), Blocksure (Bronze), Adapt Ready, Albany Group, GB Group’s Loqate and a joint entry from Instanda, Deloitte Digital & AXA XL.
Mark Cunningham told Insurance Times: ”It means everything to win this award. It’s been three years of development, many millions of investment and a number of partners to get us there.”

The WhenFresh API “Data Supermarket” was launched direct to end-users in 2018. However, big data users in sectors such as Insurance and Financial Services have been relying on WhenFresh data for years – but it has often been supplied via major resellers such as Experian, Equifax, GB Group, TransUnion, Acxiom… or other well-known suppliers for whom WhenFresh build white-label data products.
Wherever home insurers are employing property attribute, risk & perils data to simplify and speed up the application process, the road very often leads back to WhenFresh – who build the data products for many of the traditional “big name” big data suppliers.
