The Road Ahead for MarketMinds


Last year we hosted six events, we covered a lot of blockchain, London market
focused InsurTech applications and a little bit of FinTech.

 

We see 2019 as a bit of a water shed year for the insurance market, new
ecosystems involving non-traditional partners (could Amazon help you with
your data and customer acquisition?), major talent training gaps to be filled (if
you plan on a career in insurance, are you skilling up on tech? If so, where?)
and the question of “where’s the money?” in this innovation game is becoming
more prevalent.


On the InsurTech side, FinTech startups and their investors are showing an
increasing interest in the space, creating partnerships (see Starling Bank with
Zego and Nimbla) in order to reach large pools of customers. This coupled with
existing coporates developing InsurTech solutions (see Lloyd’s Lab cohort)
means that the space is maturing, inviting players from the nimble past-pased
startup community to the experienced heavy weights. We call this IFT
(Insurance, Finance and Tech – see our half day Summit on March 6th.)


This year MarketMinds have launched a new members platform for
Corporates, Individuals and Startups. We have designed this to activate our
network for the benefits our members, involve them with our events and to
look out for the interests of partners in the innovation and InsurTech
ecosystem, as we know sometime the day-to-day bread and butter work takes
over.


We will be hosting and co-hosting 10 events this year, writing weekly about
insurance and InsurTech developments and generally being a nuisance. Follow us on LinkedIn to keep up to date….
