Hannover Re has launched hr | equarium, a network to connect the reinsurer's insurance clients with insurtechs.

“We bridge the gap between insurtechs and insurers, because currently the industry has a matching problem,” said Claude Chèvre, the responsible member of Hannover Re’s Executive Board. “It’s difficult for insurers to uncover and select the right solutions. We not only make it simpler to identify the technologies that will add the most value to an insurer’s business, but we and the platform community can rate these solutions and quantify their impact, so clients can be confident in approaching them.”
