    Neta Rozy: Co-founder and CTO, Parametrix Insurance: Parametric downtime insurance (115)

    Covid-19 has led to insurance companies ramping up the speed of their digital evolution, but relying on third-party services like a cloud provider creates new external risks that need insuring.  
    Parametrix Insurance was launched 18 months ago to protect businesses from the hidden costs of going offline. As well as attracting strong interest from brokers, the company also had a parametric product named after them in the Lloyd’s Lab.
    Co-founder and CTO Neta Rozy joins Matthew on Episode 115 to discuss the company’s rapid growth and how they’re using technology to monitor thousands of digital services worldwide.
    Talking points include:
    Tailoring solutions for large and small businesses
    Defining payouts without physical losses
    Why brokers love parametric products
    What to look for in potential partners
    Standing out and scaling at speed
