“InsurTech is on the brink of changing our industry, from the inside and the outside. Never before has it been more important to understand the ideas, trends and drivers behind the insurance digital revolution. The InsurTech Book has a big role to play in helping us build our knowledge base and expand our sense of the possible.”

Huw Evans Director General at Association of British Insurers

“The insurance industry talks a good game about InsurTech but the follow up or delivery isn’t always there. But it needs to be as this great profession of ours is facing a genuine existential crisis. Our traditional ways of working and servicing our customers are becoming increasingly irrelevant. So it is encouraging to see so many people engaging with the necessity for change in this book.”

Amanda Blanc Group CEO at Axa UK

“InsurTech is rising and will transform the insurance industry, forcing incumbents to adapt. But to adapt we first need to know and understand the ecosystem – which is why The InsurTech Book is required reading. Ecosystems matter. Partnerships are key. It’s the future of insurance. The book understands that the InsurTech startups are the agent of change needed in transforming our business models.”

Zia Zaman Chief Innovation Officer at MetLife Asia

Richard Turrin

“It was the experience writing for The InsurTECH book that inspired me to start on my book on Innovation Labs and I am forever grateful to Susanne and Sabine! I don’t know how many other authors have been inspired by their work on the FinTECH/InsurTECH/WealthTECH series but I’m sure more than a few first found their writers voice working on these projects.”
