About this Episode

Sarah Kocianski and Nigel Walsh are joined by a very international panel of guests this week to talk through Covid-19 and how the insurance industry are going to tackle this very difficult situation. Joining them are:

  • Christian Wiens - CEO and Co-Founder at Getsafe
  • Jay Bregman - Founder and CEO of Thimble
  • Lance Poole - CEO of Juniper Labs

Kicking off our roundtable discussion, we start by first establishing how badly the insurance industry is struggling right now and what areas have been hit the hardest. Is the insurance industry struggling more or less than other industries? Has the insurance industry learnt anything from the SARS outbreak? We go on to talking about the importance of being fully digital in these times and how productivity can actually be improved during these circumstances. Is the insurance industry better equipped to deal with this situation than we previously thought?

All that and much more on this week's episode of Insurtech Insider!
