Digital Insurance Portugal - Q4 2019
Insurtech activity has not stopped since we launched Digital Insurance Portugal this summer. On the contrary, initiatives in the area have multiplied. We therefore asked João Freire de Andrade, President and Founder of Portugal Fintech, to give us an overview of the Insurtech Panorama in Portugal in 2019. We then wanted to know what José Galamba de Oliveira, APS President, thinks of the state of progress of the digital insurance transformation. You will be able to read the answers given to the questions asked by Vincent Van de Winckel in an interview focused on The Digital Transformation of Insurance and the role of APS. You’ll also find out why José Galamba de Oliveira thinks “it is a path with no return”.
Another topic of the moment is related to health insurance that covers an increasing part of the Portuguese population and is a perk that a growing number of companies offer their employees. Several factors challenge health insurance as an effective and sustainable solution to ensure long-term well-being. Will tech save health insurance? A panel made up of members of the governing bodies of the nation’s leading health insurers has freed clues for thought, captured by the editor of Digital Insurance Portugal.
The newsletter would not be complete without addressing “the best technology conference on the planet” according to Forbes. We invite you to a Flashback on Web Summit 2019.
We hope that Digital Insurance Portugal brings you complementary information and insights and that we can help facilitate the digital transformation of the industry.
We wish you a pleasant reading and appreciate your feedback.
