Insurwave
blockchain-enabled marine insurance

EY and Guardtime, in collaboration with other insurance industry leaders, present Insurwave, the world's first blockchain-enabled insurance platform in production. Insurwave integrates and secures the streams of disparate data sources involved in insuring shipments around the world.

HOW BLOCKCHAIN HELPS INSURERS MANAGE RISK BETTER

Guardtime and EY are providing greater transparency and efficiency through blockchain technology in marine insurance.

HOW CAN INSURERS USE THEIR CAPITAL MORE EFFECTIVELY?

When risks ebb and flow, how can insurance premiums adjust? Marine insurance has not kept up with the digital era. The industry is asking how modern technology can help manage dynamic risk.

THE ANSWER IS HERE TODAY.

Implementing a sea change in a two hundred year old industry. A new blockchain-enabled platform is automating the insurance process to meet the needs of all stakeholders.

AND THE FUTURE IS NEARER THAN YOU THINK.

Taking blockchain beyond marine insurance. This new platform will transform specialty insurance by enabling trust, transparency and automation between all companies in the value chain.

WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU

A distributed database based on immutable data offers secure access to a single version of the truth and enables automation to replace many manual processes. The first phase of the blockchain platform rollout supports the creation of insurance contracts.

Insurwave enables:

Claims to be paid in hours, not years

Premiums to be agreed and settled in seconds

Shippers to track assets and share data with brokers and insurers

Brokers to focus more on servicing clients and less on administration

Insurers to track their exposures in near real-time
