The Digital Insurer's View

Home-sharing is a core tenet of the sharing economy, the protection offered by traditional home insurance policies is inadequate. This partnership with slice labs has enabled a traditional insurer to develop new insurance products for homesharing customers. With time, such partnerships will pave the way for additional products to cater for other gig economy participants who need delivery vehicle insurance by the hour, or temporary travel/healthcare insurance.
