Gethin Jones, Skyline Partners & Calum Williams, AEGIS London: The parametric platform delivering new insurance solutions (146)

InsTech London - insurance & innovation with Matthew Grant

Skyline Partners and AEGIS London have launched a new parametric product to provide US small and medium business owners with cover in the event of a shooting. The Active Assailant policy uses police department data to define when an event has taken place, triggering a non-damage business interruption cover payment of up to $50,000. An initial launch is taking place in Dallas, Texas with the aim of scaling the policy out to other states across the US.  Skyline Partners Co-founder Gethin Jones and Calum Williams from AEGIS London join Matthew to discuss the product’s development and how parametric insurance can help fill the protection gap left by traditional policies. Talking points include:  How insurers can work with tech companies Using data to create parametric triggers Selling insurance products through a broker network Launching and scaling a business Skyline’s experience of working in the Lloyd’s Lab Skyline Partners is featured in our ‘Parametric insurance: 2021 outlook and the companies to watch’ report, which is available to download from our website and free for InsTech London members.  More information on the Active Assailant insurance product is available on the AEGIS London website.  If you like what you're hearing, please leave us a review on whichever platform you use, or contact Matthew Grant on LinkedIn.
