But this is only the beginning for 2015-2017 many players in the financial and insurance market predicted that 2018 will be the runway for insertech. Well, expectations come true. What’s next?

Automation, big date & Analytics, connected devices, machine learning (machine learning) — all this has already been successfully implemented as a comprehensive strategy for the provision of services to the consumer.

USA in this plan serves as a vector for the global trend, and it becomes clear which way the wind blows: an avalanche on the global market are the new people. People who choose technology. The market catches the signals to the avalanche of needs we must prepare. After actively developing pineham and insurecom already demanded a new “tehi”. But it will be a separate global survey of trends, which is not far off.
