NEW YORK, Oct. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Wellthie, a leading insurance technology provider offering the only national small group benefits marketplace that connects small business owners, insurance carriers, and brokers, announces that it has been included in the inaugural InsurTech 100 list of technology pioneers who are transforming the global insurance industry.
InsurTech (insurance technology) is one of the largest and most important sectors within the FinTech space. Over $7bn has been invested in InsurTech solution providers since 2015 as insurance and reinsurance firms as well as investors realize the huge impact new digital models are having on the industry. As incumbent financial institutions grapple with rapid innovation and digital transformation challenges, the InsurTech 100 was produced to identify the 100 innovative companies that every leader in the insurance industry needs to know about in 2019.
"We work hard every day to create a thriving ecosystem for small businesses, carriers, and brokers that is powered by great technology and human empathy," said Sally Poblete, founder and CEO of Wellthie. "The Wellthie team is proud to be recognized on the InsurTech 100 list along with other global insurance innovators."
The standout businesses were chosen by a panel of industry experts who reviewed an analysis of 637 InsurTech companies undertaken by FinTech Global, a data and research firm. Companies making the final cut were recognized for their innovative use of technology to solve a significant industry problem, or to generate cost savings or efficiency improvements across the insurance value chain.
