Insurtech Insider Episode 29: Partnerships

On the latest episode of Insurtech Insider, Sarah and Nigel sit down with Arslan Hannani and Tim Attia to discuss insurtechs and incumbents partnering together.

Sarah is back hosting with Nigel this week, joined by guests Arslan Hannani, Head of Market Management at Zurich and Tim Attia, CEO and Co-founder of Slice.

We kick things off with a roundtable discussion on the types of partnerships in the industry, the benefits they bring and what role (if any) regulators should play. They examine just how common incumbent/startup partnerships are, if they can ever be judged as successful and what those metrics are. The group also take a look at how investment funds factor into the picture, where accelerators fit in and what the future of partnerships looks like.

Sarah also met with Andy Rear, Chief Executive of Munich Re's digital partners and heads up their venture fund. They talk all about the type of startups Munich Re works with, the various ways it can be done and how incumbents have learned from working with startups. They also talk about how these partnerships have evolved over the years and the hurdles that lay ahead.

All that and much more on this week's episode of Insurtech Insider.
