FinTechNZ’s largest Working Group, InsurTechNZ, continues to grow and mature. Over the last few months Jason Roberts (Co-chair) and Ian Cormack (Co-chair) have developed thought leadership in this sector with help of members, and we’re looking to seeing the influence InsurTechNZ has in this space continue to grow.
Bridging the Gap
The most recent InsurTechNZ event was called Bridging the Gap, which focused on enabling collaboration and business opportunity between InsurTechs and financial incumbents. Presentations from Intelligent Life, Callaghan Innovation, Suncorp and Augen Software Group were well received by the audience of over 80 attendees. In addition, we had a great panel sharing their views and perspectives. My personal favourite was the presentation by Annabelle Thompson from our host Suncorp, outlining the work their team has done to promote diversity with younger professionals.
Jason Roberts also wrote a blog Accelerating InsurTech innovation between Incumbents and InsurTechs, recommended read if this is of interest to your business.
