1 Overview CPE credit | Specialized Knowledge

Despite the COVID-19 outbreak and the pandemic’s economic fallout, total InsurTech investment remained remarkably robust through the first half of 2020, though investments were mostly concentrated in a handful of InsurTechs. Funding is more likely for those that bolster virtual customer engagement and operational efficiency. We’ll discuss:

  • InsurTech investment data and trends.
  • Shifting priorities for insurers due to COVID-19.
  • The future of the InsurTech landscape.
