The Digital Insurer's View
The auto insurance industry is being disrupted by increased interest in autonomous vehicles and changing consumer expectations. For auto insurers, this is now a matter of survival and with non-traditional players like Tesla entering the insurance market, property insurers will soon be in the firing line. Partnerships such as this one between P&V, D´Ieteren and Amodo are one of the ways for traditional insurers to explore areas they do not have expertise in, and as telematics technology is still developing, there is still significant scope to explore and innovate.
