Kanopi to host embedded insurance roundtable

Insurance News Australia | 25 July 2022 

Insurtech Kanopi will host a virtual roundtable discussion on the future of embedded insurance on August 22.

The panel will feature IAG EGM Partners and Platforms Luke Boyle, Sønr Founder and CEO Matt Connolly, and Embedded Finance & Super App Strategies Founder Simon Torrance. It will spotlight embedded insurance and how its influence has transformed the industry, and the gradual shift towards an integrated future for insurers.

“With insights from these key players in the industry, we expect the roundtable to elicit interesting discussions about the evolution of embedded insurance,” Kanopi CEO and Founder Nigel Fellowes-Freeman said.

The discussion will be an opportunity to explore themes like evolving customer demand in a post-pandemic world, protection gaps and the role of insurers, he said.

Kanopi says there is a “golden opportunity” for non-insurance brands, enabled by new technology, to “bake” more and better protection into the everyday lives of customers, potentially helping to address underinsurance. Insurers will be able to identify new distribution opportunities, untapped value pools and partnership possibilities.

The roundtable will explore how embedded insurance works today, how it needs to evolve, and what pioneering players are achieving.
