For Ancileo, partnership is in the air we breathe.
We understand how difficult networking has been for all of us in the industry as we are still battling the COVID-19 pandemic, and consider the other impending macro events turning the industry upside down like climate change and social inequality.
But we’re coming to the realization that it’s proving to be even more important for us to build new strains of knowledge to deal with the forthcoming challenges, and to look into new partnerships to buck up the ecosystem.
We’re excited to meet each other again as networking events are returning to our calendars as the situation gradually improves. Below we’ve compiled a list of top FinTech/InsurTech conferences and trade shows in the different regions:

Of Relevance to InsurTech
An imminent topic that will be covered in 2021 is embedded finance and decentralized finance.
Consider banks as one of the key partners when it comes to embedded insurance partnerships, there’s a lot for us to take away from our banking counterparts when it comes to how we can add value and better serve our customers through embedded offers.
