The Four Ps of InsurTech
My answer to the question: “Should I invest in this InsurTech?” The insurance sector, which is considered to be fairly traditional and resistant to change, is currently being overtaken by a macro trend of digital transformation. This is causing institutions with hundreds of years of tradition to rethink their insurance business models by identifying modules within their own value chain that need to be transformed or reinvented with the help of technology and data usage. InsurTech represents a macro trend destined to take on an ever-growing relevance in a world which tends toward hyperconnectivity and the infiltration of technology into all aspects of society. The insurance business will become more InsurTech-oriented, and technology will have a decisive role in reaching strategic goals. This applies to insurance companies, reinsurers, intermediaries and newcomers. During 2015, InsurTech startups received around $2.5 billion in funding, according to LTP.
Barriers and Drivers of InsurTech Adoption
Even though lending and payments startups have been the hottest over the course of the FinTech revolution in terms of the number of companies that raised funds, we have been predicting that InsurTech is becoming a hot topic and sector for bright entrepreneurs to develop disruptive solutions. Investors also have been paying attention to the sector, as the insurance industry is the biggest industry in the US with net premiums of $1.1 trillion in 2014. There is already a range of InsurTech companies paving their way to a trillion-dollar industry, and HealthTech is an important sector to follow as it may completely change the way we look at health insurance in the near future.

10 Reasons Why InsurTech Is Going to Be Important
Technology spending in the global insurance industry is estimated to be around $189 billion. By 2019, the spending industry is expected to reach $205 billion. The IT spending ratio of insurance companies as a percentage of premiums has not changed to a great extent. Insurance companies currently spend about 3.8% of their direct written premium on information technology. The average spending by insurance companies has comparatively reduced in the last four years. There are around 700–800 InsurTech firms globally which are addressing the requirements of the $4.5-trillion insurance industry but the state of InsurTech is at a stage of infancy. New exciting business models to take over the insurance industry such as microinsurance and pay-as-you-go insurance have emerged. What will truly change the nature of the industry is the shift from complex, long-term insurance products to the fractions of insurance for a particular moment, time and miles count. The new opportunities are tied to mobile devices and time-efficiency.
