By Edil Corneille
Insurance technology or InsurTech enables individuals with greater access to the knowledge of insurance products, thus improving the current insurance industry model so that customers can make optimal decisions in the selection of insurance. InsurTech collaborations are said to drive digital innovation across the industry and maximise value. Incumbent insurers and InsurTechs must increasingly collaborate and create an InsurTech ecosystem on a large scale. A subset of financial technology (FinTech), InsurTech replaces legacy systems and brings in digital innovation in the insurance sector for efficient administration, claims, pricing and underwriting agility. Mentioned below are the 4 Vietnamese InsurTechs that are transforming the sector with their offerings and developments in the country.
