TMK forms strategic alliance with Australian insurtech Evari
Tokio Marine Kiln (TMK) has entered into a strategic alliance with Australian insurtech firm Evari.
The agreement will allow TMK to access Evari’s digital insurance platform and on-demand products in the Australian market.
The Perth-based firm has developed insurance for SMEs which directly links in to a business’ cloud accounting system and its data, allowing for automatic, live adjustments to insurance policies according to changing financial and other information. The platform also offers real-time online policy management functions including endorsements, certificates of currency and claims.
Evari said the agreement furthers its plans to build and deploy digital insurances rapidly, especially on-demand products.
Tom Hoad, head of innovation at TMK, said: “We hear lots about InsurTech and how technology is changing insurance. But we are first and foremost an insurance company that specialises in underwriting risk. So when we see young companies who have something that aligns with our expertise then we’re keen to work together. This is what makes Evari special. They understand insurance, but they also have a competitive edge and an ability to rapidly build and deploy technology. The two businesses are a natural fit.”
Daniel Fogarty, CEO of Evari, added: “TMK’s underwriting expertise, their global reach and their willingness to collaborate on new products were the main attractions for us when entering in to this agreement. TMK have an enviable track record of building long-term relationships and we are delighted to be able to work together on some exciting new digital initiatives.”
