MassMutual defines individuals within 3 distinct behavioral segments in order to determine the appropriate marketing material to mail them.

Customers are divided into one of the three segments of Assured, Aspirational, or Apprehensive utilizing a data product from third-party vendors along with internal data assets. The dataset has a high rate of incomplete matches to our internal data sources, so we reproduce the segments for all unmatched individuals. The models were learned from matched data and applied to unmatched data. To address some class imbalance issues, SMOTE tool was applied. The best model was based on Gradient Boosting algorithm via the xgboost package.
