Insurtech Gateway: The Time is Now

For over 300 years insurance has been the last line of defence for business and society. But in the fast changing world of today significant protection gaps are emerging. Last year two thirds of the economic losses, resulting from natural disasters weren’t covered by insurance. There has been no way of accurately predicting the risks and until now insurers have avoided them.

We have a new vision for the insurance sector.
