Ex Zurich Australia CEO heads up new insurtech startup, Evari
March 27, 2017
A major new start up in the insurance industry called Evari has been announced in Australia, led by former CEO of Zurich Australia & NZ, Daniel Fogarty. Evari will provide a customer first, digital experience, that simplifies the purchase and management of business insurance and will launch in mid 2017.
“At Evari we are using technology to create a great customer experience and solve challenges that SMEs face when buying their insurance”, Daniel said.
“I know first-hand the challenges that incumbents have trying to get innovation into the insurance process, and I firmly believe there is a better way of servicing the needs of small businesses”.
With co-founders from non-insurance backgrounds, Daniel’s thinking has been continually challenged.
“It turns out that there are a lot of things we take for granted as insurance professionals that are worth questioning”, he said.
Daniel adds that working in an entrepreneurial start-up presents some exciting opportunities “Like any business, the quality of the team is what will differentiate Evari from others. Located in both Sydney and in Perth, we are looking for talented individuals who want to define the future of insurance”.
This announcement comes on the eve of ANZIIF’s inaugural and sold out Insurtech Conference, which Daniel is hosting in his role as Director of ANZIIF.
“I, like many others, are keen to see a vibrant insurtech community in Australia, as we are very well placed to drive the next generation of innovation here and then export that innovation globally.”
As we see a significant wave of insurtech companies entering the marketplace both now and in the near future, it will be start-ups like Evari that look to lead the way in Australia and take a leading role driving change in the global insurance marketplace.
