Reviewed by Chloe Allison

Written by Camelot’s own best selling author, Bryan Falchuk, The Future Of Insurance – Volume II: The Startups is a treat for those working in the insurance industry. Bryan is not only an author but is also a Founder and Managing Partner of Insurance and Evolution Partners, so he offers an invaluable perspective. The book is the second instalment in his series and follows the true stories of eight insurance start-ups, providing many important lessons to help you on your insurance journey.

The book is written in a logical way, and the ‘Foundations For The Future’ sections at the end of each story gives you a moment to summarise and reflect on the key lessons. Due to the tactful use of start-up stories you get to learn in a concise and relevant way. Clear, relevant, and reality-driven, The Future Of Insurance – Volume II: The Startups is a useful tool to navigate the insurance industry with.

This would be a great one to pair with attending our Big Round Table event Deliberately Digital by Design – How Incumbent and Startup Insurers can thrive in the Digital Marathon.

The book in three words?

Invaluable –  Rich – Honest

What is the future of insurance?

The stories and summary sections offer great tips such as making sure you stay focused on what customers truly need or just because something is difficult it doesn’t make it wrong. These tips and lessons across the book, help you develop the right attitude towards your role in the insurance industry, making success more probable. 
As explained in the chapter, ‘Moving Forward’, the overarching foundations for the future are: to think diversely, make capital strategic and create real advantage. Simply hearing these foundations are not enough though, you need to read the book to fully understand what these definitions mean and see them at play in the stories, in order to employ them yourself.

Who is this book for? 

This book is good for you no matter where you are in your insurance industry career. Full of clear explanations and various lessons,  The Future Of Insurance – Volume II: The Startups is a great read for beginners and experts alike. It will teach you how to make positive changes in the insurance industry whether you are the business leader of a start-up or incumbent.

A moment with the author:

After living on the carrier and startup side, seeing how much opportunity we as an industry have for change, but how often various challenges and barriers get in our way, I wanted to help us move forward.  In my book series, The Future of Insurance: From Disruption to Evolution, I share direct case studies, written from first-hand research I’ve done by getting in deep with the people at the companies who lived the stories, to try to inspire anyone in Insurance to see a path ahead.

The latest installment, Volume II. The Startups, shares very real stories of the ups and down, challenges and wins of eight startup insurers so that we can all take lessons, regardless of whether we’re at a startup, incumbent or something else entirely. I hope anyone reading these books takes the lessons in, looks at their particular situation, and sees how they might break through and make meaningful change themselves through the inspiration they take from the stories of others doing just that.
Bryan Falchuk, Author of The Future Of Insurance series and Managing Partner at Insurance Evolution Partners
