Lawyers with experience in the insurtech sector and legal advisors to selected companies in the Spanish financial sandbox


Developments in the insurance industry and the new insurtech sector

The term “insurtech” refers to the use of technology in the insurance industry and therefore encompasses any insurance activity supported by technology. The most commonly used technologies include artificial intelligence, big data, the internet of things, asymmetric cryptography and blockchain, among other.

With the correct application of these technologies, it is possible to reduce costs in customer acquisition thanks to automation, to offer more personalised and tailor-made products and services, to facilitate remote contracting, etc. In this way, it is possible to better meet the expectations of customers and guarantee them access to relevant information in a constant, immediate and simpler way.

In addition, the use of technologies in the insurance sector can have a significant legal impact. For example, insurance companies are already using electronic identification technologies for remote registration of new users. The use of these technologies will have to ensure that KYC (Know-Your-Customer) processes are respected in order to comply with anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing regulations.

This is why being able to rely on a team of lawyers specialised in the insurtech sector is essential to address the processes of digital transformation and technological innovation in insurers and insurance intermediaries, while complying with all legal requirements.
