38min listen

On the latest episode of Insurtech Insider, Sarah and Nigel sit down with SMB insurtech experts to give you an enlightening discussion on how SMBs are starting to have access to tailor-made insurance policies and what insurance they need. Joining our hosts today are Alex Wheal, Commercial Client Manager at Hiscox and Ania Kubow, Co-founder of Nimbla.

Sarah Kocianski is back in the hosting seat this week, joined by Nigel Walsh and guests Alex Wheal, Commercial Client Manager at Hiscox and Ania Kubow, Co-founder of Nimbla.

We kick things off by discussing what types of insurance are most meaningful to SMBs, discussing the issue of how SMBs can discover which type of insurance they actually need and how much cover they'll require. We also discuss how currently there appear to be almost no tailor-made insurance policies for SMBs. Then we go on to examine why insurtechs have decided that SMBs are worth the trouble and how technology is helping improve the space for SMBs.

Sarah also has a great interview with Harry Franks, CEO of Zego while at Insurtech Insights last month. The two explore the insurance space for gig economy and small businesses.

This episode of Insurtech Insider was produced by Laura Watkins and edited by Holly Blaxill.

Special Guests: Alex Wheal, Ania Kubow, and Harry Franks.
