Prepare for the InsurTech Wave: Overview of Key Insurance Technology Trends



FT Partners is pleased to provide our clients and industry executives with our latest industry research report covering the dynamic InsurTech sector. Our latest report "Prepare for the InsurTech Wave: Overview of Key Insurance Technology Trends" is an in-depth look at the major waves of innovation and disruption that are beginning to radically alter the insurance industry.

Insurance is widely viewed as the next great opportunity for players in FinTech. Unlike many other areas of financial services, the insurance industry to-date has not been substantially disrupted by new technology and game-changing business models. However, the industry now appears to be at a key inflection point as many different constituents in the FinTech ecosystem have their sights squarely set on insurance. To this end, FT Partners is seeing a proliferation of InsurTech startups targeting all areas of the multi-trillion dollar global industry and subsequently an influx of private equity, venture capital and strategic interest in the space.
