A number of key findings are highlighted in this report:

1. The majority of insurtech startups are concentrating on distribution rather than the whole value chain. Is this just due to regulatory requirements dissuading them or is it where the real value lies?

2. Reinsurers are making a major play in insurtech. This is probably to secure distribution control.

3. At $2.3bn, the investment for 2017 in insurtech funding is not a long way from what the major (re)insurers are investing in their internal IT.

It makes for interesting reading! What do others think about the reasons behind these trends?
