APPG event with John Glen
Excellent session this morning with the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Insurance and Financial Services, discussing how to make the UK the global leader for insurance innovation.
The event was brilliantly chaired by Craig Tracey MP, and there were some superb insights from our speakers:
HM Treasury City Minister John Glen MP
· John Warburton - Founder of Konsileo
· Luisa Barile - CFO of Bought By Many
· Trevor Maynard - Head of Innovation at Lloyd's
Issues discussed ranged from IPT, VAT and blockchain to freeports and financial inclusion. Most importantly however, we saw the strength of support from the Minister about the potential of the UK insurtech sector and how it is viewed so favourably by Government.
We were delighted to hear such warm words by John Glen MP about insurtech and how it can address the economic, social and productivity challenges facing the UK as we emerge from COVID-19.
