“Insurers need to move at the same pace as the InsurTech innovators to adapt to new business models and methods of delivery”
Insurance is one of the oldest and most traditional industries, and until recently it has proved fairly resistant to change. In the last few years, growing numbers of tech startups have emerged and started to encroach on the territory of the big players. U.K. Insurtech in particular has seen a surge in activity and a sharp increase in fundraising. Last year it attracted more than $1 billion in investment.*
The accelerated use of technology in the insurance sector is having both a disruptive and transformative impact on areas including monetisation strategies, product development, distribution, modelling, underwriting, claims, and administrative practice. Some players are set on displacing the industry incumbents, others are working with the leading insurance firms as they transition to the age of digital innovation. Join us at this leadership event to see how Urban Jungle (an Insurtech start up), is shaking up the industry with innovative products, services and business models.
At this leadership event, delegates will gain the following insights:
In addition, delegates will be briefed on an expanding partnership model as an effective route to market and reasons that partners choose to work with Urban Jungle, including:

He has set out to build a team capable of turning the industry on its head. Jimmy’s background is in consulting, where he worked with various insurers, tech providers in financial services, and price comparison sites as a Principal at OC&C.
