What will drive the cyber insurance market over the next 3 years?

The global cyber insurance market was worth $7bn in gross written premiums (GWP) in 2020. It will reach $20.6bn by 2025, as the market will continue to thrive post-COVID-19. Our recent report on Cyber Insurance reveals that cybersecurity was thrust into the spotlight in 2020 as COVID-19 forced businesses to digitize their processes and adopt remote working practices overnight. The pandemic also presented an opportunity for cybercriminals to exploit global panic, with a surge in cyberattacks occurring in 2020. The need for cyber insurance is apparent, but the market is not as easy to navigate as it once was. Use our report to guide and help you to:
  • Benchmark yourself against the rest of the market.
  • Ensure you remain competitive as new innovations and insurance models begin to enter the fray.
  • Prepare for how regulation will impact cyber insurance over the next few years.

The round involved the participation of IA Capital Group, MS&AD Ventures, Reciprocal Ventures, Fintech Ventures Fund, The Takoma Group, and HU Investments.

Marble founder and CEO Stuart Winchester said that the infusion will enable the firm to expand headcount and make new partner integrations.

Winchester added: “The vast majority of insurtech investment over the last decade has been in technology that sells more insurance, faster. Meanwhile, insurance companies continue to spend billions on advertising to attract customers that they will only engage with once a year.

“Marble’s insurance partners leverage our API-powered tech to offer precise rewards tailored to their customers – who stay engaged through rewards and notifications, as well as the ability to bundle, compare, and keep track of all of their policies at a glance. All of this dramatically increases the likelihood of engagement and renewal.”

Established and launched in private beta last year, US-based Marble enables members to shop, compare, explore, pay, and also get rewards on their insurance premium payments.

At present, it is in beta and will offer its platform to any personal policy holder in the US from next month.

IA Capital Group managing partner Andrew Lerner called the insurtech a “win-win for customers and insurers”.

Lerner noted: “Customers are demanding a better way to manage their disparate policies and accounts. Insurers want a better way to engage with customers.

“Both would rather have insurers spend billions of dollars less on advertising, and have Marble give those billions of dollars back to the customer.”

Recently, insurtech platform for real estate LeaseLock, also based in the US, received $52m in a Series B funding round.
