Once uncle Sibling of the flourishing fintech sector, Insortech is now one of the hottest sectors of a booming enterprise market. Zeego’s $ 150 million round acorn valuation in March is a rumored giant for WeFox, and a large proportion of IPOs and SPACs in the US are all testament to it.

Fintech has set an example for explosive growth that can be achieved with improved customer experience underlined by modern technology. And the epidemic has put the spotlight on high-potential categories, including health, mobility, and cyber security.

This has triggered an ideal storm of conditions for large European insarch evacuations. There are four trends to look towards as many European IPOs and a red-hot M&A market as industry powers over the next few years.
Full-stack Insurtech continues to win
Many early Inserch success stories began life as general agents (MGAs) management. Unlike brokers, MGAs manage claims and underwriting but, unlike a traditional insurer, risk third-party insurers or reinsurers from their balance sheets. MGA has provided a great way for new brands to acquire customers and reduce policies without the need for a truly fully balanced balance sheet. But this is a business model with thin margins, so MGAs are increasingly trying to reduce vertical risk exposure in a “full-stack” insurer in hopes of improving their unit economics.
This structure has been prevalent in the US, with some of America’s major Insurtech IPOs being successful (Lemonade and Root), SPAC (Clover and Metromil), and more upcoming listings (Hippo and Next), pointing to the awards available to those We do.
