Do Innovative Companies Outperform?

Amid the wildly disruptive business landscape, companies are innovating for a more durable source of competitive advantage. As this typically does not show up on their traditional financial statements, a company’s true potential can be grossly undervalued by relying exclusively on these. We believe that quantifying their innovation capacities is the key valuation input needed to identify outperformers. Our latest whitepaper, based on GlobalData’s proprietary Patents Database, evaluates companies’ intellectual capital as a vital factor in differentiating their offerings as well as driving future growth. Access the report to understand:
  • How are disruptive forces accelerating trends in innovation?
  • Why do traditional approaches to company analysis fall short in fully capturing companies' potential?
  • How can patents be leveraged to build portfolios that capture innovation-alpha?

The blockchain insurance consortium in its corporate registry filings in Switzerland revealed that approximately over half of the investment, nearly $8.34m, came in cash. Rest of the capital came as converted debt.

The latest fund raise brings the company’s total capital to more than $22m.

During its incorporation in March 2018, B3i had raised approximately $6.35m.

Concurrently, B3i has also reshuffled its board by adding new executives from existing consortium members.

As part of the changes, Gerhard Lohmann, CFO at Swiss Re, has been replaced by Theo Bachmann, a managing director and head of the P&C insurance underwriting center at Swiss Re.

Except for Daniel Quermia, who is the CFO and director at MAPFRE RE, all other board members are chosen from existing B3i shareholders.

The consortium’s new board includes Antony Elliot of Zurich Insurance, Paolo Bagnasco of Generali, Bob Crozier of Allianz, XL Innovate’s Tom Hutton, SCOR’s Adrian Jones, Aegon Blue Square’s Chris Madsen, and Anton van der Linden or Achmea.

Founding shareholders of B3i include insurance giants such as Aegon, Allianz and Munich Re, Swiss Re, Tokio Marine, XL Catlin and Zurich.
