Singapore, 16 September 2020 – The InsurTech sub-committee of the Singapore FinTech Association (SFA) announced today the launch of Singapore’s first interactive InsurTech map, capturing Singapore’s vibrant InsurTech ecosystem on the SFA’s website.
The map will be regularly updated to reflect Singapore’s rapidly evolving InsurTech landscape. It is intended to help users of InsurTech services such as insurers to source for solution providers, while enabling InsurTech firms to easily promote their businesses locally and globally.
The map is powered by The Digital Insurer’s (TDI) InsurTech Directory platform (ITD), which categorises InsurTechs and dynamically links readers to further information on each firm. ITD is positioned as The World’s InsurTech Database and, whilst still in its formative stage, already manages the largest freely accessible listing of InsurTechs around the world.
Commenting on the launch of the Singapore InsurTech Map, Tomasz Kurczyk, Chairman of SFA’s InsurTech sub-committee, said, “The sub-committee was recently formed and aims to foster collaboration within the InsurTech ecosystem. We believe this interactive map is a great platform to enable people and organisations to bridge and make connections. The InsurTech map will also be updated every quarter to reflect the growing InsurTech community.”
Chia Hock Lai, President of SFA, commented, “SFA is proud to be launching the first interactive Singapore InsurTech Map and remains committed to build a thriving ecosystem for InsurTechs. Initiatives like this will help place InsurTechs in Singapore on the global map and enable insurers to tap on opportunities that already exist as they transform and grow.”
Hugh Terry, Founder at TDI, added, “Our purpose at TDI is “working together to accelerate the digital transformation of insurance” and we are delighted to have partnered with SFA to launch a practical yet interactive and visually engaging tool that will help InsurTechs to get connected to potential customers, both locally and globally, and vice versa.”
