Insurtech UK is a trade association for technologically focused insurance company start-ups in the UK. They have a membership base of over 100 insurtech businesses and several partners both from the traditional insurance space and industries that serve the insurance market.
Hugh King, battleface Director of Business Development for the UK and Europe, said: “We utilise API and iFrame technologies to deploy our solutions, ‘unbundling’ the traditional travel insurance product to custom build modular solutions from the ‘ground up’ aligning to the consumer base of our partners. We share Insurtech UK’s mission with making the UK a major hub for insurance innovation with our solutions available globally, providing capacity and availability of our services to incumbent insurers, insurance intermediaries, travel and hospitality providers.
“As well as working with key partners to support their brand and proposition with white-labelled solutions, battleface has created a retail product that enables the consumer to purchase a policy in less than two minutes, eliminating bulky legacy processes that have been in place since the 90s.”
James York, Co-Chair of Insurtech UK, commented: “We're so pleased to welcome Battleface to Insurtech UK – another brand pushing innovation. I am sure they will be a valuable member of our growing, and increasingly influential sector.”
During the pandemic, battleface has continued to provide insurance policies including cover for medical expenses caused by or resulting from Covid-19 for travellers up to and including age 59 or under.
