Beyond the headlines: revealing the stories behind the insurance news

We’re piloting a new style of podcast this week and borrowing the InsTech podcast channel to test this out.

If you are wondering what is going on behind the news items you read about in insurance or technology then this new podcast is for you. We’re bringing together experts, founders, insurers and some well know figures to tell us the news items that are capturing their attention – and why.

Matthew Grant CEO of InsTech is joined face to face in London by fellow podcasting enthusiast Nigel Walsh, Managing Director, Insurance, Google Cloud US, James Birch, Development Director at Ki Insurance and Bijal Patel, Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, Aurora Insurance.

And we’ve got more. This week we have an interview with the CEO of Ki Insurance Mark Allan, a listener question and a chance to hear our hosts and guests predictions for 2024.

The news we’re discussing this week is:

  • Ki insurance new capacity partners Travelers and Aspen
  • Why the range of loss estimates from Hurricane Otis is so high
  • Howden Group £500m insurtech ventures fund

Look out for more in this new podcast series coming in 2024. Please let us know what questions you’d like our hosts and guests to answer and any new ideas to keep you listening.

If you like what you’re hearing, please leave us a review on whichever platform you use or contact Matthew Grant on LinkedIn.
