Reinventing insurance for the mobile generation: will blockchain secure the future of insurers over the tech giants?
Insurance is an old industry. Entrepreneurs are looking at how the latest technologies can create new business models to increase efficiency, reduce administration and make insurance products attractive to today’s digital natives.
The press continues to be dominated by commentary on technological innovation in all sectors, and insurance is no exception. We are all familiar with "fintech", a label identifying the use of new technology like mobile phone banking to create and improve financial services, be it for a consumer or a business. But what about the insurance equivalent? What is “insurtech", and what does it mean for those working in the insurance industry in the near future?
Ten or so years ago, insurers began slowly to ask their legal advisors about technology and innovation. In those early days, such matters were generally addressed as part of a legal services tender. The questions themselves, perhaps by today’s standards, could be said to have been naïve. They included, “tell us what you mean by innovation”, or “what guidance can you give to us about innovating for the future”.
