How has investor appetite in insurance technology evolved throughout the years? In this blog post we examine the total investments by year into this sector to help answer that question. The graph below shows the total number of investors in all deals stacked by quarters.
As the graphic demonstrates, investor activity in insurtech has started to decrease in recent years. The 5-Year CAGR of insurtech investor activity from 2013 to 2018 is 24%. In addition, the sector has seen a total of 289 investors in all deals through Q2 of this year. This represents 57% of the total investor activity in 2018, and 104% of the investor activity through Q2 in 2018. Taking all these data points together, we can see that investor appetite for insurtech deals has potentially stabilized around a new, slightly lower plateau.
