英国保险科技投资总额再创新高

埃森哲根据CB Insights的数据进行的最新研究显示,英国保险科技行业投资今年再创新高。仅2017年上半年,英国保险科技投资总额就高达2.18亿英镑,远高于去年同期730万英镑的水平。

虽然目前英国脱欧已成定局,但是这并没有影响到英国在保险科技行业的领先地位。2017年,英国保险科技行业成交量上升75%,全欧有近30%的相关业务都是在英国完成的。

研究还显示,目前英国保险科技投资主要集中在以下三个方面:云计算、物联网和大数据

埃森哲英国与爱尔兰区保险研究负责人Simon Tottman表示,行业创新与数字化进程对保险经纪市场也产生了巨大影响。换句话说,如今的市场是机遇与挑战共存。为了保证市场份额,提供更加个性化的投资服务,保险经济商必须加快自己的数字化进程,充分利用大数据等先进技术,跟上市场的创新脚步。

Investment in InsurTech in the UK has surged to record levels, according to Accenture analysis of CB Insights data.

Accenture noted that this is a “sign of confidence in the UK as a global hub for insurance technology”.

The figures showed that investment in UK InsurTech has increased to £218m in the first half of 2017, compared to £7.3m the year before.

According to Accenture, the UK’s decision to leave the European Union has not impacted the amount of investment coming into the InsurTech sector, and it highlighted that London remains the “undisputed centre for European InsurTech investment” with 30% of all deals taking place in the city.

The research further revealed that cloud computing, the Internet of Things and big data technologies attracted the most investment.

Deal activity in the UK accelerated in 2017, with the number of deals having jumped by 75% from the same point last year.

Brokers

Simon Tottman, head of insurance research for the UK and Ireland at Accenture, told Insurance Age that the uptick in innovation and digitisation in the industry has had an impact on the broker market.

“The key message for us is that 2017 is an enormous year for InsurTech in the UK,” Tottman said.

He added: “Brokers have to reinvent themselves and diversify beyond their core broking and transactional activities. This has been born out of technological innovation.”

According to Tottman technology has allowed insurers to deal directly with customers in a better and more efficient way than before.

“This is what InsurTech start-ups focus on,” he added. “They make customer engagement better and the products more personalised and people increasingly see fewer reasons for going through a broker, particularly in personal lines.”

However, he highlighted that there are opportunities for brokers to harness big data and enhance their services.

Tottman further noted that brokers needed to diversify and collaborate more with InsurTech start-ups to remain relevant.

“Brokers could have a great role to play in acting as the glue between insurers and start-ups,” he commented. “Insurers are working with lots of partners and they need help forming collaborations.”

Tottman concluded: “For brokers it’s a mixture of both challenges and opportunities. They have to partner with start-ups to create an ecosystem that insurers need to be a part of.”
