InsurTechs — The Evolving Insurance Ecosystem

We published a curated content on InsurTech developments in March, but there have been enough developments since then that we thought it would be useful to share another roundup of resources.

Willis Towers Watson recently issued a first quarter 2019 briefing showing InsurTech investment records were being “smashed.” In late May, Kentucky passed legislation to become the first state to create a regulatory “sandbox” to promote innovation, and Vermont followed suit soon afterwards. And the federal Government Accountability Office  issued a comprehensive account of related issues in its report on the “Benefits and Challenges Presented by Innovative Uses of Technology”

See below for additional articles and other resources, including a couple of books we’ve added to the collection courtesy of the Jean Lucey Fund. And anyone interested in such matters should sign up for the webinar we’re offering on Thursday, June 20 with Rob Galbraith, CPCU, the author of The End of Insurance As We Know It.  This webinar is is sponsored by Norfolk & Dedham Group.
