InsurTechNZ June 2022 Newsletter

Welcome to new members Heartbeat Health,, and Rothbury Insurance Brokers – it’s great to have you on board.  

For the first time, ANZIIF will this year recognise InsurTech in its annual New Zealand Insurance Awards. As Damian Falkingham, General Manager, Industry Engagement, puts it, “The Insurtech sector continues to grow within the New Zealand market and ANZIIF want to recognise and celebrate those Insurtech companies who are enhancing, extending, or replacing traditional approaches to servicing insurance customers’ needs.” Entries close 18th July. 

More evidence of our industry’s growth can be found in the TIN (Technology Investment Network) 2022 Fintech Insights Report, which identifies a cohort of promising Early-Stage Insurtech companies.

Member events were hosted in person in May and June, providing a much needed forum for people to re-connect. Our most recent panel tackled the topic of AI, and featured member companies Ando Insurance, JAVLN, InsuredHQ together with specialist AI/ML platform Arcanum. Couldn’t make it on the night – you’ll find a recording on our website. 

Join the next InsurTechNZ event on 14th July, generously hosted by Open at Generator in Britomart Place. Also for your diaries – the FinTech Hui on 31st October.

Kind regards

Dale Smith & Blair Turnbull, Co-chairs
