Summary

Blockchain is a distributed ledger that is broadly discussed as a technology with huge innovation potential in all areas of financial services. To date, it is largely in the banking arena where blockchain use cases have been identified. However, blockchain technology also offers potential use cases for insurers, including innovating insurance products and services for growth, increasing effectiveness in fraud detection and pricing, and reducing administrative costs. In these application areas insurers could address some of the main challenges they are facing today - such as limited growth in mature markets, and cost reduction and regulatory pressures. The implementation of blockchain is a long-term project as it largely depends on network/system effects as well as on defining the regulatory conditions. In addition, before initial implementation steps are taken the benefits and limitations of the technology need to be fully addressed and understood. Considering all of this, and with many other financial services investigating its prospects, now is the best time for the insurance sector as a whole to further explore blockchain technology and its potential.

Key Findings


  • Blockchain ultimately provides access to secure, decentralized transactions, offering an improved basis for non-repudiation, governance, fraud prevention, financial and personal data, and reporting.

  • Insurers see blockchain as an opportunity to integrate the ecosystems of trusted third parties to reduce the costs of their global platforms, improve customer and market reach, and develop new propositions.

  • Blockchain provides more scope for insurers to maximize governance through improved data access, third-party controls, and more sophisticated management of the risks associated with their products and services, including resilience services and cyber insurance.
