Virtual Event – Insurance Innovators Festival: Blink Parametric

Virtual Event – Perry McShane represents Blink Parametric – A CPP Group Company, at the Insurance Innovators Festival

Join us for the Innovators Insurance Festival virtual episodes, on Wednesday 10th November 10:00-11:50am, as Perry McShane explains what parametric insurance is and the exciting technology behind the CPP Group company Blink Parametric, that brought you the UK’s first lost luggage product this year.

This year, CPP Group UK launched ‘Smart Luggage’ – the UK’s very first parametric lost luggage product with partner Just Travel Cover.

The cutting-edge product uses parametric technology to offer real-time support to airline passengers whose checked luggage cannot be located following an airport arrival.

The technology is delivered by Blink Parametric part of CPP Group plc.

Perry McShane Head of Financial Institutions and Brand Partnerships, will be speaking at the upcoming Insurance Innovators Festival this month as part of their virtual episodes series to tell you more about Blink Parametric and the benefits of offering parametric insurance.

Who are Blink Parametric and what is parametric insurance?

Blink Parametric was founded in 2016, a Parametric as a Service (PAAS) InsurTech start-up focussed on a flight disruption travel insurance solution to prove its parametric platform. It became the first InsurTech in the FCA (UK) Sandbox programme and was acquired by CPP Group in March 2017.

Since then, the company has continued to expand its offering. The current Blink Parametric platform-based solutions have an impressive span, covering the Travel, Climate, business interruption and Energy sectors.  Blink aim to continuously lead, transform and disrupt the global insurance marketplace through innovative and creative parametric insurtech.

Parametric insurance in simple terms, is a non-traditional insurance product that offers pre-specified solutions or pay outs based upon a trigger event.

How does Blink Parametrics technology work?

Blink essentially is the engine of our parametric platform. Using a validated data source such as bank account trends via open banking or monitoring weather patterns, that can trigger an instant pay-out or pre-agreed resolution based on a specified trigger event.

For example, if a business was forced to stop operating due to a storm impacting that area, and have a policy covering them for this type of business disruption – Blink can automatically detect:

  1. That the businesses location is in an area that has issued a weather alert
  2. That the businesses accounts have been stationary, for however many days they’ve been unable to open for business.

Based on this validated data, Blink can then automatically provide that business with their instant pay out or resolution specified in their insurance policy. This provides the customer with a resolution right at the point of needing it, rather than having to manually submit a claim and wait for an outcome, which can take months to approve under a traditional claims process.

Why should you provide parametric insurance to your customers?

The importance of parametric insurance in today’s market cannot be understated.
The main key benefits to your customers are:

  1. Faster pay outs
  2. Flexibility
  3. Tailored coverage for losses not covered by traditional insurance

Offering parametric insurance also benefits insurers.
The key benefits for you are:

  1. No claims forms or receipts are required
  2. No ‘people’ interaction is required, saving a significant overhead and operational cost
  3. Solutions can be made market-ready, enhancing your customer satisfaction ratings
