Futuro Insurtech: Uso de tecnología por consumidores crece en los seguros

EY says that the future use of FinTech in insurance is projected to rise to 55%.

A report into the adoption of FinTech by customers from consultancy EY has found that 24% of insurance consumers are now using FinTech solutions (otherwise known as InsurTech) to transact or communicate with their provider.

The report noted: “According to the study, this has largely been due to the expansion into technologies such as telematics and wearables (helping companies to better predict claim probability) and in particular the inclusion and growth of premium comparison sites.”

EY published the FinTech Adoption Index 2017 and found that adoption among consumers had surged globally over the past 18 months and is poised to be embraced by the mainstream industries.

The study, based on 22,000 online interviews with digitally active consumers across 20 markets worldwide, highlighted that an average of 33% digitally active consumers now use FinTech.

The UK has also shown significant growth, with adoption rates now standing at 43%.

EY added that the future use of FinTech in insurance is projected to rise to 55%.

Imran Gulamhuseinwala, EY global FinTech leader, said: “FinTechs, particularly in the payments and insurance space, have been very successful in building on what they do best – using technology in novel ways and having a laser-like focus on the customer.

“It really is now a critical time for traditional financial services companies. If they haven’t already, they need to urgently reassess their business models to ensure they are able to meet their customers’ rapidly changing needs. Disruption is no longer just a risk – it is an undisputable reality.”
