HANNOVER RE launches an insurtech innovation platform

Germany-based Hannover Re launched a platform designed to bring the insurance companies and insurtech innovators closer. Through the "hr | equarium" platform, Hannover Re wants to facilitate the connection between supply and the demand for insurtech solutions, taking advantage of its worldwide spread.

The platform is described as a free service, offered to Hannover Re clients and vendor partners. Hannover Re expects its new platform to further advance the implementation of modern technologies in the insurance industry, helping insurers to stay ahead of their competition and insurtech partners to connect to insurance companies more easily.

hr | equarium is focused on delivering:

  • solutions and services for insurance companies along the insurance value chain;
  • business cases that demonstrate how these solutions can and have been applied in practice;
  • ratings of solutions by the community.
"We bridge the gap between insurtechs and insurers, because currently the industry has a matching problem. It's difficult for insurers to uncover and select the right solutions. We not only make it simpler to identify technologies that will add the most value to an insurer's business, but we and the platform community can rate these solutions and quantify their impact, so clients can be confident in approaching them," said Claude CHEVRE, the responsible member of Hannover Re's Executive Board.

Step by step, the insurers' relationship with customers evolves from simply indemnifying insureds for the losses suffered because of road incidents, to helping them prevent incidents and rapidly recover after the accidents that couldn't be avoided.
