Insurtech funding going strong in Q1, 2019 - but will the trend continue?

According to Venture Scanner there are 1540 insurtech companies that have raised $28B in funding since 2012 to date, from a total of 1427 Investors globally. Funding in the 1st quarter of 2019 was $1.7B, which means an increase of 141% compared to Q1 2018 funding. This is mainly due to Clover Health’s funding round of $500M on January 29th led by Greenoaks Capital.
