The Perils and Promise of Insurtechs
Among the largest insurers, building a stake in the insurtech movement takes various forms, including direct investment, acquisition and supporting tech accelerators.
Funding is up for insurtechs, but the number of new entrants is declining.
Reinsurers are finding new routes to the customer, both through primary clients and by creating alternative brands.
For many insurers, it's easier to authorize a larger investment in an insurtech than it is to integrate its technology.
For many insurers, the most important takeaway from dealing with insurers is exposure to faster-moving, adaptive cultures that embrace, rather than reject, change.
