Value Prediction: Customer Lifetime Value (CLV) is predicted using customer behavior data to determine the customer’s profitability for the company. Behavior-based predictive models are used to process all the data on customers and arrive at a forecast on customer buying and retention. These models provide insights on the likelihood of customers’ behavior in the maintenance or surrendering of a policy. CLV can also be leveraged for developing market strategies as it reflects one of the important customer characteristics.
