Episode 10 — Connected Homes

Date: 7 March 2018

In the latest episode we dive into the phenomenon of Connected Homes. We kick off by explaining the concept and its relevance for the insurance sector. Unsurprisingly, there is a lot to discuss! Sarah Kocianski, Senior Analyst at Business Insider is joined by Arslan Hannani, Head of Market Management at Zurich; Colin Richardson, Co-founder of Cocoon; Kristian Feldborg, Co-founder of PolicyCastle and Patrizia Cozzoli, Head of Business Development at Fing. The guests chat through the benefits and negatives of Connected Homes, and more broadly IoT (Internet of Things), for the consumers. Sounds like a lot needs to be done on the awareness side of things, since 77% of people have never heard of Connected Homes. To wrap up the episode, Nigel Walsh interviews Mark Budd, Head of Innovation of Zurich who tells us all about their Innovation Foundry, a brand new initiative to focus on the simplification and innovation of products for customers.

Key discussion points in this episode:

  • What are Connected Homes and how can insurers make the most of them?
  • What are benefits and negatives of using IoT for insurance purposes for consumers?
  • How do smart devices feed information to home owners and to third parties, such as retailers and insurers? 
  • How comfortable are consumers - in an era where data is starting to become more sovereign - in allowing insurers access to this data?
  • What impact can smart gadgets have on insurance premiums?
