European Insurtech: The early-stage investment landscape in times of Covid-19
By Anais Masetti - 09 septembre 2020
The growth of Insurtech has played a key role in the advancement of innovation in the insurance sector. Since 2015 a total of $8.64 billion has been invested in the global Insurtech space, a fifth of that ($1.78 billion) into the European Insurtech ecosystem. In the UK, Insurtech has been one of the leading providers of jobs in the tech sector, representing an enabling force across emerging economic sectors such as the gig economy.
While the insurance space was moderately impacted compared to other industries, the COVID-19 pandemic was still felt by new and incumbent insurance players, bringing a new wave of uncertainty.
