insurance, insurtech, FinTech, InsurTechs Australia’s strong financial services sector has made FinTech a popular industry. As a result, it comes as no surprise that in the past few years Australia’s InsurTech industry has witnessed a boom. InsurTechs in Australia hold the key to helping incumbents accelerate their transformation to become digital insurers. Australia provides a good nurturing ground for companies looking to invest in InsurTech.

According to a report by EY titled, ‘An assessment of the Australian Insurtech ecosystem’, the InsurTech ecosystem in the country is evolving and growing to meet the changing insurance demands. Additionally, in the last year, the number of InsurTechs operating down under has grown by 53%.

Here are 3 promising Australian InsurTechs:

Cover Genius’ technologies include XCover, a distribution platform providing coverage for any line of insurance in any country, language and currency. XCover was developed after the early success of Rental Cover in the mobility space.

Claims are handled by XClaim, its API for real-time payment of approved claims. It handles tens of thousands of instant claim payments in 90+ currencies via bank transfer, and it also allows partners to choose to remit via store credits, e-wallet and card top-ups.

Integrity LifeBased out of Pyrmont, Integrity was created out with an aim to fundamentally disrupt the industry and improve life insurance in Australia. By blending its expertise with technology, the company is creating products that are easy to understand and simple to use.

Integrity has eliminated claim forms for almost all claims and replaced them with a tele-claim process that allows it to collect the information it needs for a claim quickly and with fewer follow-ups for additional information. The company has even extended this to generating fully personalised treating doctors’ report questionnaires so that a busy doctor can provide information on a claim without having to wade through pages of questions.

Integrity has access to more than $180 million in capital, both equity and debt. The company’s investors include four funds under the discretionary management of London-based firm Leadenhall Capital Partners and Japanese life insurer Daido Life Insurance Group.
