sum.cumo and HSBA with Insurtech study

sum.cumo and the HSBA, Hamburg School of Business Administration have published a comprehensive study on the insurtech market in German language. Background and cause of the study is the importance of digital competence, which has been further increased by the Covid 19 crisis and is now the basis for successful existence in the market. The adaptation of new digital offers and technologies is indispensable in the insurance industry today. The study gives insurers an up-to-date insight into relevant use cases and providers and is available for download here.

Technological service providers in the insurance industry are presented

The aim is to describe relevant technology-oriented service providers for the insurance industry in a structured way in the form of a more in-depth company profile. Both start-ups and established Insurtech companies were selected, which can offer particularly exciting added value for insurers and insurance sales due to the constant development of the technological approach and industry expertise.

Presentation and discussion

On October 27, 2020, Ingolf (Putzbach), one of our two managing directors and Professor Florian Elert, head of the insurance management department at the HSBA, presented the results of the study. This was followed by the panel discussion with the industry leaders Dr. Arne Barinka, member of the board RheinLand Versicherung AG, Oliver Lang, CEO ONE Versicherung AG, Philip Knott, founder and CEO freeyou AG. They gave exciting insights into the digitalization of insurance.
