Insurtech funding surpassed $3bn in 2018

Insurtech funding surpassed $3bn in 2018

The funding increase has also led to a greater number of digital policies for consumers as more insurtech startups emerge, according to research from analytcis firm GlobalData.

The study, Digital Challengers in Insurance, highlights the number of new ventures offering ‘on-demand’ policies where consumers can buy coverage by the hour, day or week via an app for certain personal lines such as motor, gadget and home insurance.

While insurtech funding still lags other industries such as transport and entertainment, the success of startups offering more flexible services is foricng traditional providers to respond with their own innovations, said Ben Carey-Evans, insurance analyst at Global Data.

For example, UK insurer Aviva has launched Aviva Plus, which allows insureds to pay monthly subscriptions while adjusting levels of coverage. Meanwhile UK bank Lloyds has recently partnered with US-based insurtech Trov, using the latter’s white-labelled platform to develop a series of digital insurance products for customers.

“Established UK players have to adapt to progress made by start-ups or consumers will begin to go elsewhere,” said Carey-Evans. “They can no longer rely on their trusted brand names, as they are not just competing against start-ups but can be left behind by their competitors partnering or investing in them.”

    A reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
