“We want to make Australia one of the world’s leading markets for insurance innovation. InsurTech is a rapidly growing sector worldwide, and Australia has the ideas and skills to compete.”

Founding members of the association include a cross-section of industry, technology and startup experts, including Macquarie Bank, QBE, ANZIFF, IAG, Suncorp, RAC Insurance, Tank Stream Labs, Munich Re and The Fold Legal.
