Hannover Re announces the launch of hr | equarium – an innovation pool exclusive to Hannover Re’s global network of insurance clients which facilitates connections with innovative insurtech partners.
The online platform provides access to a diverse range of solutions spanning the entire value chain, propelling the insurance industry forward by making it easier to find and implement new technology.
“We bridge the gap between insurtechs and insurers, because currently the industry has a matching problem,” said Claude Chèvre, the responsible member of Hannover Re’s Executive Board. “It’s difficult for insurers to uncover and select the right solutions. We not only make it simpler to identify the technologies that will add the most value to an insurer’s business, but we and the platform community can rate these solutions and quantify their impact, so clients can be confident in approaching them.”
“On the other side, new technology providers can struggle to get their foot in the door with insurance firms, or to position their solutions in a way that really resonates,” Chèvre said. “We help our select community of insurtech partners to refine their value propositions, and we offer the strength of our global footprint and trusted reputation in the market.”
Digital disruption, shifting demographics and evolving buyer preferences have created a challenging operating environment for insurers. With hr | equarium, Hannover Re offers easy access to product and distribution innovations that are crucial factors for insurers to stay ahead of their competition and to meet consumer needs.
