Hello and welcome to the latest episode of the Leadership in Insurance Podcast where this week we are lucky enough to be joined by Hermann Fried, Managing Director, at bsurance.   

We had a great conversation this week where we discussed a wide variety of topics such as:  


Insurance being 20 years behind banks in terms of digitisation   
Embedded insurance providing ease for the customer   
How the pandemic has encouraged demand for accessible insurance   
The general shopping experience is now extremely accessible, why isn’t insurance this way?  
Why did it take so long to challenge the insurance model?  
How the normalisation of online retail has impacted our tolerance for time  
What is driving the rise in embedded insurance?   
Offering the real time delivery of insurance policies   
Asking who the client?  
The real client being the insurance broker   
Insurance’s broker driven model being the slowest aspect to change   
How do we tackle trust in embedded insurance?  
bsurance’s partner relationships   
Discussing regulation, how does that impact embedded insurance?   
Borderless trades  
How much of a threat does embedded insurance pose to the traditional insurance market?  
Most of the incumbents dont see the threat   
Loosing aspects of the value chain   
Addressing the gaps in the value chain   
Insurance of the intangible world   
How is the face of insurance changing?  
Is insurance broken or is it lacking in customer centricity?   
‘Insurance is sold not bought’   
We need to be incentivised to change   
What’s next for bsurance?
