InsurTech is blossoming, thanks largely to passionate ecosystem builders contributing their networks and expertise to invigorating and future-proofing the insurance industry. I feel extremely fortunate to be at the epicentre of this movement, and deeply inspired to foster InsurTech ventures to achieve increasing quality and scale.

It is quite magical to witness how both worlds learn and benefit from each other, and increasingly join forces to create the future together.

For this purpose, I put together a list of 10 things to know about insurance in Asia.
