Last week we held our first InsTech London event, welcoming various insurtech organisations to a short seminar at our London office.
The industry’s perception of insurtechs is changing and they are being seen less as disruptors and more as organisations for incumbents to collaborate with. However, elevating an idea from concept to build and through to mass markets continues to be a daunting prospect, which is where Polaris hopes to lend a hand.
As an industry owned organisation benefiting from thousands of hours of industry input every year, Polaris have provided solutions for the insurance industry for over 25 years, since a time when the internet was seen as ‘the new tech.’ Throughout the years we’ve helped many companies along their journey. The event provided an opportunity for insurtechs to understand whether Polaris products could assist and speed up their access to market.
Several insurtechs were in attendance, whose businesses each bring an individual and unique spin on modern day insurance. Attendees included the likes of Trov, a San Francisco based technology provider who specialise in mobility insurance, cyber risk technology provider KYND and distribution platform provider KASKO.
During the presentation our speakers were able to showcase Polaris’ collaborations with insurtechs and how we have helped them improve their speed to market, build and rate insurance products that easily connect with other industry systems and how we are partnering with data providers to enhance our own product offering.
The guests were able to discuss how our products - Standards, ProductWriter and imarket - can help them along in their journey.
Our Work with Insurtechs
Recently, we have worked with insurtechs such as By Miles, Honcho, Cytora and Pikl. Our collaborations have ranged from providing our product Standards, giving them access to the language of the industry, reducing build time and allowing for easier integration with the industry systems, to providing ProductWriter Toolset and the RTE rating engine enabling users to easily build and rate their bespoke products.
We have also integrated ProductWriter with commercial lines data provider Cytora, so our users can build up a more accurate view of risk instantaneously through the use of their data.
