  3. 3. 2CommerzVentures GmbH ‌ Frankfurt a.M. | March 07, 2016 CommerzVentures About this White Paper This white paper was compiled by CommerzVentures, the FinTech Venture Capital fund of Commerzbank. Our goal is to give an overview of key technologies which we believe will transform the insurance industry. We hope to provide insights into their potential uses in the context of the insurance value chain. We hope that this will allow readers to better assess the developments within the space. We identified the top 50 startups in the industry. Contact us via info@commezventures.com if you believe you should be one of them.
  4. 4. 3CommerzVentures GmbH ‌ Frankfurt a.M. | March 07, 2016 CommerzVentures Executive Summary (1/2) •  90 percent of all the data available worldwide was generated during the last two years. New technologies enabling the generation and acquisition of vast amounts of new data and powerful algorithms are about to transform the $4tn global insurance industry beyond recognition. •  The entire insurance value chain will be transformed by technological innovations such as artificial intelligence, connected devices, drones, new payments, and the blockchain. Entirely new value propositions and distribution methods will be enabled. •  There is a huge market for startups and incumbent insurers that embrace the new technologies. •  Relative to the market’s size we feel confident that InsuranceTech startups should have absorbed twelve times more funding than they have thus far.
  5. 5. 4CommerzVentures GmbH ‌ Frankfurt a.M. | March 07, 2016 CommerzVentures Executive Summary (2/2) •  To capture this vast opportunity startups and incumbent insurers need to establish effective cooperation models, leveraging each party’s key strengths. •  Effectively cooperating with startups may be the only way for incumbent insurers to fend off potential competitors such as Google, Amazon, Facebook and other non-traditional players. •  By analyzing 500 InsuranceTech startups across the world, CommerzVentures identified 50 companies that are especially well positioned to drive innovation in insurance. •  While one-third of these startups can be seen as disruptive to incumbent insurers, most enable existing insurers to harness technology. Thus, insurers have much to gain from fruitful collaboration with startups.
