全球各大保险巨头纷纷重金投资创业加速器项目

在过去一年里,在对创业公司投资和寻求合作方面,慕尼黑再保险公司(Munich Re)及其子公司显然要比瑞士再保险公司(Swiss Re)要积极多了。

在瑞士再保险公司(Swiss Re)近期发布的年报中,行长Walter Kielholz表示:

“如今,越来越多的中间商冒着风险做着非中间商该做的事情,因为他们无法适应他们现有的业务模式。可以预见这些会带来破坏的人们正在逐步渗透到市场和科技中来,整个行业将会发生变化。“

安盛集团(AXA)、安联(Allianz)、万通(MassMutual)以及利宝相互保险集团(Liberty Mutual)都在初创企业公司投资方面忙的不亦乐乎,而领头的瑞士再保险公司(Swiss Re)和慕尼黑再保险公司(Munich Re)及其子公司都针对整个创业环境探索出了一系列战略举措。

本月初,瑞士再保险公司(Swiss Re)在印度启动了保险科技加速器(InsurTech Accelerator),专注于物联网、参与系统和智能分析。而慕尼黑再保险公司(Munich Re)则启动了Plug and Play保险加速器和全新物联网项目,同时还与西班牙的Alma Mundi公司展开合作并启动相关加速器MundiLab。此外,慕尼黑再投资公司还通过公司的风投部门Munich Re/HSB创投投资了若干家物联网创业公司,其中包括Helium, Waygum和Augury。此外,公司还用再保险资金投资了即将成立的P2P P&C保险创业公司Lemonade,以及通过数字合伙项目同一系列创业公司签订了认购合作协议,其中包括Trov, Simplesurance和Slice。

随着再保险价值链的不断破坏,人们会越来越频繁地讨论再保险公司所面临的风险,等到那时,不知这些再保险巨头们还会不会继续进一步扩大在保险科技生态领域的涉足范围?

Munich Re and its subsidiaries have been more active than rival Swiss Re on the startup investment and partnership front over the last year.

In Swiss Re’s recent annual letter, Chairman Walter Kielholz wrote,

“Today more than ever, some of these intermediaries run the risk of getting disintermediated sooner rather than later because they are unable to adapt their business model, disruptors are penetrating their markets or technology is changing the entire industry.”

While insurers ranging from AXA and Allianz to MassMutual and Liberty Mutual have gotten busy in tech startup investing, leading reinsurers Swiss Re and Munich Re and their subsidiaries have also explored a number of strategic moves across the startup landscape in their own right.

Earlier this month, Swiss Re launched the InsurTech Accelerator in India focused on ”Internet of things (IoT), systems of engagement, and smart analytics.” Conversely, Munich Re has sponsored accelerator Plug and Play’s insurance and IoT programs and also partnered with Alma Mundi Ventures in Spain to launch its own accelerator MundiLab. Munich Re has also invested in several IoT startups including Helium, Waygum, and Augury through its corporate venture arm, Munich Re/HSB Ventures, and backed soon-to-launch P2P P&C insurance startup Lemonade with reinsurance capital. Munich Re, through its Digital Partners program, has also struck a number of underwriting partnerships with startups including Trov, Simplesurance and Slice.
