CPP Group’s InsurTech company Blink celebrates its debut in the prestigious INSURTECH100 for 2019
Blink, part of CPP Group Plc and one of the world’s fastest growing Travel InsurTechs has made it onto the INSURTECH100. The INSURTECH100 is an annual list of the world’s most innovative InsurTech companies that are solving significant industry problems, generating cost saving or efficiency improvements within insurance as selected by a panel of analysts and industry experts.
CPP Group’s InsurTech company is now a world leader in parametric insurance product innovation, transforming its clients’ complex offerings into superior service experiences with simple, intuitive, online products. The company is driving international expansion for the Group with a host of global partners within insurance and financial services including Manulife and Blue Cross Canassurance, delivering their innovative solution to over 250k customers.
This is just the latest highlight in Blink’s 3-year growth story, which since its inception in 2016, has seen it grow from a 2-man start up to a trailblazing InsurTech. Blink made it onto the list amidst strong competition in an industry which is growing at breakneck speed. According to FinTech Global, the specialist data and research provider and the organisation behind INSURTECH100, the InsurTech industry has seen huge growth in the last two years as insurance companies grapple with the challenges of digital transformation and new demands from customers.

What we offer is unique and has a ‘wow’ factor that delivers an extraordinary impact for our partners as they push ahead with their InsurTech transformation objectives. We’ve signed some huge partnerships over the last 24 months, and we have others in the pipeline to be announced this year, so the future is exciting, and this recognition is the perfect acknowledgement and motivator for our team to keep delivering excellence.”
