    59. Modern Insurance - Build a better product!

    On this week's episode of Insurtech Insider, Nigel Walsh is in the hosting seat and joined by a panel of guests to explore how insurance is changing in our modern world. Joining Nigel this week are:



    Freddy Macnamara - CEO and fFounder of Cuvva
    James Blackham - CEO and Co-Founder of By Miles


    Out with the old, in with the new. Kicking off our roundtable discussion, we start by first establishing what's so wrong with the old method of getting insurance. Where is the need for new ways of insuring and what do people now expect from their insurers? With modern technologies becoming increasingly intertwined in our daily lives, the way we live has undeniably changed, including how we use and insure our cars.
    Smartphones have become an extension of ourselves and with everyone carrying around mini-computers in their pockets, comparing prices and insurance models has never been easier. With the addition of telematics and the growing adoption of OpenBanking, it looks like the on-demand insurance industry is set to rapidly change, but will incumbents be able to keep up?

Customer Reviews

Shanta Shanta!!! ,

Thank you for the podcast.

I thought InsurTech podcast would be boring, but I actually like it. And now I get travel insurance anytime I travel. Thank you.

Emisonian ,

More or less what you expect

This is a competently run podcast on insurtech. It would be nice if the hosts were a bit more skeptical. However, there is something delicious about a podcast that both laments innovation theater while also featuring a nonsense blockchain project involving a comical number of consultants and no justification of why an immutable, append-only ledger would be even helpful, let alone necessary in an MVP.

Here’s to large corporate centers of innovation and more buzzword salad!

Everything you ever wanted....

...to know about blockchain and insurance use cases but were afraid to ask!
