    There are also a small number of businesses looking specifically at back office functionality (much as in the FinTech arena), in an effort to reduce the cost associated with adhering to regulations - take a look at www.covianalytics.com as a good example...

    #2 This is a fair assessment Brian, and one that I have challenged a number of startups on... The regulators in the UK are reasonably Laissez-Faire with new players coming in to the insurance sector, I suspect mainly because they think they'll either fail quickly, or ultimately succeed and be bought by a large incumbent with a pre-existing regulatory/compliance structure.

    Everybody wants to look to tech for disruption.... and forgets compliance and regulatory requirements / realities. It is why Google and Wal-Mart had to leave the Health Care Market silos. Both are powerhouses of money, tech, customer following - but they built architecture and products without a look to the ramifications of Government Intervention. And having talked to both of those entities when they were in the start up phase of development; both discounted the need for Policy Alignment and Analysis.... and yet BOTH of them abandoned the channels because of those realities. The warm crow pie that I got to deliver was not as satisfactory as knowing that I could have helped them through what they were stepping in. TECH Alone is not a solution - if you walking blindly into RISK that you haven't accounted for, haven't addressed. *Ask the NSA - but that is another rant altogether.

    Great theme for a debate @Gareth Eggle the presence and impact of technological evolution is obvious but I think that not a lot of people analyze and take a chance to think about what are the effects (positive and negative) a debate is always a good way to open up people's minds
