InsurTech is an industry that’s really taken off in the last few years with many different tech and AI developments and new challengers springing up, as talent breaks away from incumbents to go it alone. We thought it was the perfect time to discuss all the new developments in a brand new podcast.

InsurTech Insider

11:FS and our podcast Fintech Insider have teamed up with Deloitte to put together a brand new podcast, InsurTech Insider. InsurTech Insider is a new show in the 11Media network, hosted by David M. Brear (CEO, 11:FS) and Nigel Walsh, (Insurance Partner at Deloitte), dedicated to all things insurtech. The podcast aims to bring insurtech into the mainstream, to discuss the news, trends and stories within the industry with leading experts and still make it accessible to all levels of experience. In Nigel’s words “there’s no better time to be in insurance” – and both he, David and their special guests will take you through the trends, changes and news stories, and the new startups, disruptors and technology in the insurance industry right now.

What is InsurTech?

Literally speaking InsurTech is a portmanteau of “insurance” and “technology”. InsurTech companies believe that the traditional insurance industry is ripe for innovation and disruption, using technology to find new ways to save customers money, change up the industry models, and use new data streams to allow for new pricing strategies for consumers, in ways that big incumbent insurers don’t do.

InsurTech 101

Fittingly for our very first episode, the guys discussed exactly what is InsurTech? Is it just “fintech’s little brother” – or so much more than that? We found out the 101 with special guests Ben Green: Digital Director, Tock Insurance and Freddy McNamara: CEO and Founder of Cuvva. Listen to the episode in full

Making insurance fairer

Episode 2 has just gone live with an exclusive interview from Brolly CEO, Phoebe Hugh, following Brolly’s recent round of funding, all about what the future holds for Brolly and their overall aims to make an impact in the insurance space, and to make insurance fairer for all. It’s great to hear from a startup that’s making big waves in the insurance space with big aims and ambitions that will benefit a lot of people long term. Listen to the episode in full.

Stay tuned for new episodes coming soon!

We aim to bring you more guests, more discussion and more news and stories from the insurance world. Find InsurTech Insider on iTunes or your favourite podcast provider now as part of the Fintech Insider family, and if you really love the show, leave us a review!
