The Digital Insurer's View
Insurancebox is one of several policy management services that have emerged over the past two years. Given the fact that most complaints received by China’s insurance regulator relate to claims, these policy management platforms such as Insurancebox will address a very real pain point. However, as with most consumer facing InsurTechs, the cost of acquiring users will be the key denominator in its ability to scale.
