Blockchain in Insurance: A Vendor Overview

While blockchain is still a technology in development, a host of vendors are offering to help insurers make use of it or its variation

Boston, MA (Apr. 17, 2017) – Blockchain is still an immature technology, with a range of blockchain platform options competing for pre-eminence. Of all blockchain platforms currently available, only the bitcoin blockchain has been in production for over five years. In the meantime, some are taking the technology in a direction further away from the original concept of blockchain and distributed ledger. While the core technology continues to evolve, a host of technology vendors has sprouted to assist the insurance industry. This report is meant to help insurance executives gain a firmer grasp of the ecosystem of vendors targeting property and casualty, life, or healthcare insurance with blockchain solutions or services.

This report is based on 48 executive phone interviews conducted with insurers, reinsurers, technology vendors, consulting firms, and venture capitalists across North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, and the Asia-Pacific between January and March 2017. The report profiles 29 organizations and technology vendors: Acord, Airas Intersoft, Augur, B3i, ChainThat, ConsenSys, Ethereum, Factom, Guardtime, Hashed Health, Hyperledger, Integrated Engineering Blockchain Consortium, IoT Blockchain Consortium, KPMG, Lloyd’s of London, NTT Data, PokitDok, PwC, R3CEV, RSK Labs, SAP, SmartContract, Stratumn, Symbiont, Synechron, TCS, Teambrella, Verisk Analytics, and Woleet.
