The Future Of Insurance: Fintech 50 2022

Here are the best information about Insurance tech companies voted by users and compiled by us, invite you to learn together

Reported by Jason Bisnoff and Jeff Kauflin

For insurtech companies, the past year has been full of challenges, more so than many other areas of fintech. Newly public businesses like home insurer Hippo, renters insurer Lemonade and auto insurer Root saw their stocks drop steeply amid concerns around profitability and weather-related losses. Funding for insurtech companies still grew in 2021- almost doubling from 2020 to reach $15 billion, according to CB Insights-but it expanded at a slower pace than the rest of fintech, which saw financing nearly triple over the same time period. Three insurtech companies made our Fintech 50 list this year, compared with six last year.

Yet some niches of insurtech continue to thrive. For example, Newfront is using technology to more efficiently sell and service business insurance and employee benefits, and last year it bought a 400-person insurance and financial services broker based in Northern California. As cyber threats and hacks proliferate, cyber insurance company Coalition grew its business from 28,000 customers at the end of 2020 to 130,000 one year later, and annual premium revenue hit $315 million last year, up from $56 million in 2020.

Here are the three insurtech companies that made the Fintech 50 in 2022:
