World InsurTech Report 2020
Since 2018 when we launched the World InsurTech Report, our analysis and trend predictions have been sound.
Industry change has been fast and furious. InsurTechs have morphed from new-age competitors to maturing
collaborators. Tech giants and assorted challengers are zealously venturing into insurance territories. Innovation and
cultural awareness are at the top of everyone’s agenda.
Like you, however, we had little inkling about the black swan novel coronavirus that would heighten awareness and
in-place conditions blanketed countries, BigTechs emerged as consumers’ shining CX north star - taking over our
collective consciousness as trusted, crisis-ready pur veyors of food, 24/7 entertainment, facemasks, hand sanitizer,

WOW-factor digital experience the way to keep today’s time-strapped, multi-tasking insureds engaged and loyal?
Speaking of engagement, we are incredibly appreciative during this year like no other to have received seasoned
insight from a highly engaged Executive Steering Committee made up of leaders from the United States, Europe, and
Asia who represent insurance firms, InsurTech organizations, the influencer community, technolog‒SURYLGHUVDQG9&

invaluable support.
In addition to Steering Committee conversations, our 2020 report team inter viewed nearly 200 industr y executives
and heard incumbents sa‒WKDWIDOORXWIURP&29,D -19 was compelling them to fast-track digitalization. Meanwhile,
InsurTechs said they appreciate insurers’ growing demand for collaborative support, but it is pushing them to

What does it all mean? Within an open insurance ecosystem, boundaries between incumbent insurers, InsurTechs,
BigTechs, and tech partners are blurring as participants work cooperatively to meet rapidly evolving customer
expectations and to thrive as traditional business models become redundant.
In previous editions of this report, we emphasized the importance of Inventive Insurer competencies. Today, they are
essential across high-impact areas such as crisis-proofing processes and enhanced digital experience.
Insurers across the globe will go into the upcoming strategic planning cycle faced with prioritization decisions that
force them to weigh trade-offs among time, profits, autonomy, and differentiation.
Nobody said it was going to be easy. The 2020 clarion call tells us that successful participants in the new insurance
marketplace will open their minds and cultures to fresh thinking as they leverage scalable platforms to prepare for the
unexpected.Anirban Bose

A multiple-challenge black swan
The black swan event COVID -19 posed, on the one
hand, a life and health threat and, on the other hand,
kept ever yone locked down, forcing us to reinvent
business routines. And, for ever ything impacted by
COVID -19, there was a residual effect on associated
insurance policies.
How are incumbents managing business
continuity and customer engagement?
COVID -19 has sparked significant implications for
established insurers. Overall, the low-interest-rate
environment has adversel‒DHFWHGDOOLQFXPEHQWV.
On a positive note, incumbents are maintaining
business continuity. More than 90% of the traditional
insurers we polled for this report said they had acquired
capabilities to conduct business remotely.
Of concern, however, are customer engagement
challenges that haven’t gone away. Insurers told
us their customer engagement KPIs were affected
because of COVID -19.

Insurance firms are focusing on their digitalization
efforts to better engage with their customers and to
improve their operational efficiency.
Innovation is more important to
the industry than ever. Yet, we
know that every carrier is under
incredible cost pressure that
impacts their regular business, not
to mention today's low-interest-rate
environment. The critical challenge
before insurance firms is how to
meet the needs of their customers
and sales channels."

4 Question: How is the COVID-19 health crisis affecting your organizational KPIs within the following parameters? Rate on a
scale of 1 to 7, where 1 = No impact at all, and 7 = Very high impact. The figure reflects ratings higher than 4.

Challenges and opportunities for
Incumbents’ forced and sudden enthusiasm for
fast-tracking digitalization efforts is translating into
opportunities for InsurTech firms. However, InsurTechs
face a time crunch to deliver up-to-the-minute
solutions while managing the sudden demand to scale
up – all while working to retain investor trust.
Overall, COVID -19 has underscored gaps around the
technology, systems, products, and processes of both
established insurers and InsurTech firms. As might be
expected, the unpredictability of 2020 is prompting
the industry to restructure products and processes to
be resilient during future crises.
With the impact of COVID-19,
insurers need to refine their product
pipeline and reprioritize their
project roadmap – as some projects
that were not a priority before are
critical post COVID-19. Also, insurers
should react at the right speed to
mitigate the challenges ahead."

The stakes are high, how will insurers

Uncertainty has dealt a new hand to both incumbent
insurers and InsurTechs. The industry executives
we polled as part of the World InsurTech Report
2020 appeared laser-focused on their critical new
priorities. So, let’s take a look at some of their
resilience strategies.
Incumbents are all in!
Established insurers were confident in their ability
to establish crisis-proof processes (nearly 80% of
respondents) and in their efforts to be a caring partner

for policyholders (75%). However, when it comes to
real-time response, insurance-as-a-utility, and digital
experience, insurance firms are not confident with
their abilities.
Innovation at warp speed
Fast and furious digitalization and innovation have
become the post- COVID -19 norm for incumbents.
Around 60% of our sur vey respondents said that well
before these last few months, they had launched
in-house innovation teams. Around 30% of the
insurers we polled said they had gone so far as to
create a separate innovation fund or a digital spin-
off. French multinational insurance firm AXA created
startup studio Kamet as a developmental sandbox for innovative insurance and asset management
firms. A X A aims to launch, incubate, and build high-
potential entrepreneurial startups by supplying advice,
methods, structures, and financing.

InsurTechs help to catalyze insurers’
crisis-mode digital transformation
The InsurTech landscape is vast. So in 2018, as part

The HOPE platform analyzes the data points to match
patients with the best-suited physician based on
each individual’s medical needs. Personalized HOPE

said they were delighted by the experience and were
willing to recommend it.

As incumbents prioritize digital transformation and
team up with ecosystem partners, InsurTech Enablers

are in high demand. Weather risk modeler Descartes ,
an InsurTech based in France, developed an image
recognition and machine learning solution so P&C
insurers can conduct remote claims assessment
inspections without staff support. GC&C , a subsidiar y
of global insurer Generali, leveraged Descartes’
remote claims assessment capability to develop a
parametric insurance product.
As social distancing takes a toll on in-person sales
efforts, Distributors are helping insurance brokers
conduct business remotely via digital platforms. For
example, Berlin-based newcomer wefox helps brokers
sync their calendars to schedule meetings and to
conduct consultations via the WefoxGo platform’s
video conference function.
When it comes to Incumbent-
InsurTech collaboration, focusing
on specific use cases is critical.
Experimentation for the sake of
experimentation tends not to
yield great results, but the right
innovation at the right place at the
right time can be a big win."

While InsurTechs launch innovative solutions, their
biggest challenge is sustaining business operations

InsurTech priorities
• Scaling and industrializing new solutions while
hiring/onboarding staff to meet higher demand
• Growing market share while transitioning the
firm’s culture throughout the shift from startup to
As we assess today’s dynamic industr y indicators, we
believe InsurTechs that achieve sustainable success
will be those prepared to scale up quickly while staying
agile. These days, incumbents are looking for proven
solutions and are comfortable working with mature
startups, also known as scale-ups .
Collaboration will become more
prevalent, as some use-case focused
startups are specialists with best-
in-class solutions that attract a
large, diverse client base. Therefore,
insurance players that don’t offer
differentiating expertise - a secret
sauce - should be opened to partner
versus build."
— Arnaud de Scorbiac,
Investment Director, ISAI
Additionally, Full carrier InsurTechs are putting their
digital agility to essential use by quickly developing
new offerings and value-added ser vices that resonate
with today’s evolving customer needs. Japan’s first

Digital-first strategDQG
ecosystem partnerships boost
policyholders’ brand loyalty
Future Generali India Insurance Company (FGII) is a
joint venture between global insurer Generali and
Indian retail giant Future Group. FGII ser ves 2.3 million
customers throughout India.
Business objective: Intent on enhancing customer
experience and improving its Net Promoter Score (a
CX measurement tool to gauge customers’ willingness
to recommend a brand), FGII implemented a Digital
First strategy that included product and application
development and distribution.
Implementation: Future Generali followed a multi-
pronged digital-first strategy, including the adoption
of InsurTech approaches to provide a superior
customer experience coupled with innovation in
distribution to reach customers in non-traditional
insurance environments. It launched a range of sachet
insurance products (niche micro-insurance) – from
luggage insurance to COVID -19 coverage – at Future
Group’s large-format, high-footfall retail locations.
The sachet products are tangible, easy-to-understand,
small ticket-size products that are supported by
technology-enabled frictionless transaction capability,
resulting in innovation in the area of insurance
distribution by creating an insurance product category
in a retail environment. Insurance distribution
innovation was the result of an insurance product
categor y positioned within a retail environment. The
insurer also began collaborative partnerships with web
aggregators to distribute policies.
What’s more, Future Generali digitally equipped its
distribution network with tools for lead generation,
as well as training apps to help agents better assist
customers. The insurer empowered intermediaries to ser ve customers in real time at the point-of-sale
through its partner self-ser vicing portal. Agents can
instantly issue quotes, policies, raise service requests
and claims, and manage renewals. Sixty-eight percent
of the insurer’s agents have adopted the tools, with
~200K policies issued in H1 2020 alone.
Claim settlement is a moment-of-truth in insurance.
To settle all cashless claims promptly and seamlessly,
Future Generali launched an app to assess damaged
vehicles through live video streaming. Ser vice is
enhanced by a tab-based claims assessment system,
an application that enables the surveyor to manage
claims on the go and end-to-end from sur vey
to payment.
Future Generali has also embraced robotic process
automation, in which high-volume requests are
processed via input-measures without manual
intervention. The insurer also recently launched a
customer-facing mobile app featuring industr y-first
capabilities and a simple, intuitive customer interface.
Overall, Future Generali is ramping up CX at various
touchpoints throughout the customer journey.
After innovating at each value chain
touchpoint, nearly three-quarters of FGII customers
recommend the insurer to others. The insurer’s
Net Promoter Scores rose from nearly 40% of
policyholders in F Y 2018 to nearly 60% of customers
in F Y 2020. Future Generali has garnered industr y
recognition through multiple customer service awards,
such as The Medallia Exp‒$ZDUGVsDQGDQG

Customer centricity
Firms seeking to understand and meet policyholders’
emerging needs are levering human-centered design
techniques. Let’s consider customers who say their
preferred communication channel is via agents/
brokers. For policy ser vice, this segment isn’t small -
21% of customers told us they prefer agent/broker
channels over automated channels.
25 In many cases,
COVID -19 has now left these policyholders with no
option but to use contactless ser vices. Insurers have
not broadly adopted human-centered design, but
without it, retaining customers may become tricky

Real-time data management is a vital customer-
centricity component. Insurers now have more data to
work with because policyholders are more willing to
share additional personal information. Real-time data
can be a boon to more authentic and higher-impact
customer engagement.

Cloud-native insurance platform
offers an all-in-one digital
transformation solution
New Jersey-based Majesco provides software and
technology ser vices for property/casualty, life, annuity,
and group insurance companies around the world.
Business challenge: To help its clients meet and
exceed policyholder expectations – and enable
speed to value as a digital insurer – Majesco sought
to develop a new insurance platform focused on CX,
business innovation, and technological leadership. The
new, cloud-native platform replaces the old paradigm
of the integrated suite of core insurance systems
focused on transactional processing by uniting core
insurance processing systems – policy, billing, claims
– with advanced digital and data/analytics capabilities
and third-party services delivered via application
programming interfaces (APIs) that will enable the
customer-led digital transformation.
Business objective: A legacy insurance approach
cannot survive in an on-demand world. Customers
who live in the moment through their devices respond
to offers that cater to their wants and needs precisely.
The emerging paradigm to ser ve these customer
expectations is a platform that solves customers’
immediate needs and shifts from a sales focus to
a buying focus. A next-generation digital platform
delivering agility, innovation, and speed was required
to keep the customers of Majesco clients engaged,
satisfied, and loyal.
Innovative strategy: Majesco’s innovation lab
focuses on insurance industry business solutions and
technology. Leveraging consumer research, InsurTech
community insights, and digital platforms outside the
industr y, the firm established a strategic direction
for a best-in-class digital platform. The small team worked in stealth mode to mitigate the temptation
to sell the offering before it was ready. Launched
st® Insurance platform
features a range of real-time, insurance-specific
capabilities in a microservices-based architecture,
a cloud-native platform that is pre-integrated with
and complements the insurer’s stand-alone core and
related system offerings.
For a line of business undergoing
digital transformation with customer journeys for
various personas – Quote & Buy, Policy Ser vicing,
Electronic Payments, FNOL – implementation takes
from eight to 16 weeks.
Benefits: The Digital1
st® Insurance platform enables
the rapid launch of differentiated customer journeys
for various personas, tapping into new channels
through an API ecosystem, and the development of
new-age insurance products. The all-in-one solution
also offers a marketplace of cost-effective pre-curated
partner apps that can be embedded dynamically to
optimize the overall customer experience.
Results: So far, 15 customers have chosen the
platform to accelerate their digital transformation
journey. The Digital1
st® Insurance platform is also
integrated with Majesco’s P&C and L& A Core
and Distribution Management solutions to help
insurers accelerate their digital journey. Customers
say that their focus on client-centric design has
improved because the Digital1
st® Insurance platform
provides pre-built insurance journeys with no-code
configuration tools. And built-in DevOps capabilities
enable test-n-learn MVP rollout.

development approach.
Today’s uncertainty necessitates swift action from
incumbent insurers to retain market share and
customer trust. But where to start? We slotted actions
under broad timeline umbrellas: Now, New, and Next.
• Now – Requires immediate attention from insurers
that lack those capabilities
• New – Good-to-have capabilities to slate for
development after Now capabilities have
been established
• Next – Insurers’ aspirational or targeted state
For instance, insurers driving hyper-personalization
goals will start with human-centered design and
then focus on acquiring real-time data capture and
analysis capabilities. Developing a data- and insights-driven culture merits
immediate focus because it enables organizations to
acquire and leverage other capabilities efficientl‒DQG
successfully. Cybersecurity is another immediate and
ongoing priority as a result of today’s fast-evolving
cyber-risk landscape. Insurers that digitize their
processes can move on to making those processes
touchless, without human intervention, with an end
goal of establishing smart, AI-driven protocols that are
digitalized end to end.
An immediate product agility priority is the capacity
to conduct remote business efficiently. Most insurers
are doing well on this front and are en route to cloud-
native implementation. Cloud-native enterprises have
a leg up when it comes to initiatives around developing
new solutions and capabilities such as labs, incubators,
or innovation hubs.
Open APIs allow insurers to participate actively within
an open ecosystem and to collaborate seamlessly
with other players. As ecosystem partners begin to
exchange customer data, the ability to ensure data
privacy will be essential.

Shifting from a focus on products to a customer-
centric approach will enable firms to provide
transparent and seamless CX, with intuitive processes.
By leveraging data as a critical asset, insurers can
unlock the full potential of customer information and
use it strategically to generate new revenue streams,
create value, and boost decision making.
The shift from capability and asset ownership to
shared access will help industr y players become
more efficient and will create higher value compared
with exclusive capability/asset ownership. Shared
access will encourage partnerships with specialists
versus building or buying capabilities ‒ to enable
firms to focus on their core competencies and deliver
better value.
The industr y is changing. Successful participants in the
new insurance marketplace will be the ones with a new
mindset – able to react nimbly to change by staying a few steps ahead of trends and preparing for the
unexpected.By doing so, they bolster customer trust –
the foundation of the insurance industry.
Compared with tech newcomers,
incumbents have a wealth of
experience in insurance products and
processes — and their customer base
and data sets are vast. If established
insurers exploit the new ecosystem
with an innovative mindset, they can
strategically compete in the game like
