30. Report from New York. Bernard Goyder from Insurance Insider’s first impressions of US insurance and tech
The team from Insurance Insider are regular attendees at our InsTech London events. Bernard Goyder, senior reporter for Insurance Insider was previously covering the London insurance technology and insurtech space but since April he has been based in New York. In this episode Matthew talks to Bernard about what he's learning about the difference between writing insurance in the US and the UK, and why this constrains innovation in personal lines.
Despite the regulatory challenges Hartford has developed into a major hub for insurance innovation and Bernard was there recently meeting the insurance commissionaire.
He reviews some of the new companies he likes along with an update on Lemonade and Bernard's own experience of trying to buy renters insurance.
