Insurtech UK gathers pace

Insurtech UK gathers pace

Earlier this year we wrote about Insurtech UK, the new industry body formed to represent and support those in the emerging insurtech sector in the UK. honcho were a founder member of this, and since launch we’ve been involved in a number of initiatives to help increase the visibility of Insurtech UK and to drive awareness of the transformation and disruption opportunities being brought by members.

In early April Insurtech UK held their first breakfast briefing in London. The event was a huge success and a significant number of members, partners and members of the media were in attendance. The event itself has received some great coverage in the trade press and you can see the relevant articles below:

Whilst many Insurtech UK members are based around London and the south east, honcho are of course based in the beautiful city of Durham in the north east of England. We believe that there are significant opportunities for insurtech in the north east, and our CEO Gavin Sewell will be speaking about this at event in Newcastle as part of the North East Digital Festival on May 23rd.
