Join us at WBS The Shard or online to discuss the digital transformation of the insurance industry, as the funding streak in InsurTech cont.

About this event

Technology investments within insurance has historically lagged behind banking. Now innovators are seeking to disrupt other verticals within financial services, including insurance.

According to the BCG FinTech Control Tower, InsurTechs raised $14.4 billion across 644 deals in 2021—surpassing the total raised in 2020 by ~87%. Approximately half of the capital invested last year went to 37 companies raising mega-deals worth $7.8 billion. Please read this article for further context.

Incumbent insurers have also kept pace by launching digital initiatives across the whole product spectrum. Firms in adjacent spaces such as FinTechs and HealthTechs, and corporate giants including Amazon and Google, sought to capitalise on the synergies between insurance products and their existing offerings which has seen the launch of innovative insurance-related projects.

In our third face-to-face event since the pandemic, we will be focusing on InsurTech in a panel discussion led by industry participants:

Dino Bertolis, Chief Executive Officer at Breez Insurance

Henry Gale, Research Analyst at InsTech

Tobias Taupitz, CEO and Co-Founder of Laka

After the panel discussion, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and network with fellow alumni and guests over drinks and nibbles.

Join us at WBS The Shard, in-person or online. Joining instructions for those attending online will be shared closer to the time.
