About The Event

After the successful pilot of #InsurtechSofia, launched in 2017, we at Fintechguardian – The European Association of Fintech Stakeholders, decided to proceed further by organizing second edition of #InsurtechBalkans series of specialized Insurtech summit and expo events.

This time we are in Skopje, in collaboration with Insurance Supervision Agency and the Economic Chamber of North Macedonia.

The #InsurtechBalkans series brings together insurance regulators, insurance consumers and insurance business experts as well as investors and Insurtech enthusiasts to discuss the future of the Insurance industry and how it affects all stakeholders.

Our unique event is entirely dedicated to the future of the risk transfer industry being the single event in the Balkan region, focused entirely on Insurtech. We present our visitors with opportunity to interact with hand-picked speakers and top experts thus turning #InsurtechBalkans into a collaborative platform for opinion exchange and facilitated interaction between our guests.

The event creates also a meeting point for Insurtech wantrepreneurs and their potential investors revealing future opportunities for growth. We strive to bring together bright minds and business experience that could evolve in numerous success stories.

Meet us on 02-03 October 2019 in Skopje, Northern Macedonia

Will Insurtech reshape the Insurance Industry?

“InsurTech has an impact across all of the steps of the value chain in the insurance and pension sectors, including through the emergence of start-ups, often in cooperation agreements with incumbent undertakings. The business models of undertakings and the consumer experience are being transformed as a result of the proliferation of financial innovations and technology.”

Excerpt from Insurtech Task Force Mandate by EIOPA

The state of insurance in 2030

AI and its related technologies will have a seismic impact on all aspects of the insurance industry, from distribution to underwriting and pricing to claims. Advanced technologies and data are already affecting distribution and underwriting, with policies being priced, purchased, and bound in near real time. An in-depth examination at what insurance may look like in 2030 highlights dramatic changes across the insurance value chain.
