 Insurance Thought Leadership

As I watch the insurtech space, I see a fair bit of hype around disruptive technology. Some of what I see reminds me of the dotcom boom of the late 1990s. Then, as now, lots of startups promise to deliver something ground-breaking, and all are competing in the same space, with many of the same ideas. To put this into perspective, let’s look at the global claims loss pyramid. This pyramid is a simplified model that segments claims into four main types. The base layers of the pyramid — representing technology-driven and networked services, and low-value, high-volume claims — are where technology-enabled offerings can be effective. Technology also is beginning to flow into the level above those, where higher-value and more complex claims reside. The top of the pyramid is large complex claims, which are the most technically challenging and require highly experienced loss adjusters.
