Cover Story: Insurtech to reshape industry

The growing adoption of insurance technology (insurtech) will not only result in greater transparency for the industry but also better customer experience and more innovative products. The growth of insurtech, a subsector of financial technology (fintech), has been made possible with the digital revolution.
