La Parisienne Assurances: preparing its partners for the insurance of tomorrow

Written by Roger Peverelli and Reggy de Feniks - Founders The DIA Community on Aug 27, 2019

La Parisienne Assurances is a fully digitalized insurance company. It designs and distributes tailor-made white label P&C insurance products in 13 European countries to a wide range of partners: traditional brokers, insurtechs and non-insurance distributors, (e-commerce sites, retailers).  La Parisienne aims to better serve the end-customers experience in today’s new shared and usage-based economy: it provides innovative bespoke on-demand & parametric insurance products, together with a fully end-to-end digital customer journey thanks to its APIs, data, and blockchain technologies.

La Parisienne launched a unique technological platform in April 2018, named IPaaS (Insurance Product as a Service), that gives distributors direct access to its insurance solutions, offered in the form of APIs (pricing, contract management, claims management, etc.), to automatically integrate them into their own customer journey. The threshold of one million API requests per week has just been exceeded and all La Parisienne products will be used via APIs by all its partners by the end of 2019.

IPaaS also uses a private blockchain to automate the management of contracts and claims for parametric products. The number of contracts stored in this private and totally secure blockchain is increasing by more than 10% per month and is already reaching several tens of thousands. Over 160 insurance partnerships are already live, and La Parisienne has generated revenues of €311.7 million in 2018, an increase of more than 40% compared to 2017, 40% of which was generated outside France.

Why we selected La Parisienne Assurances for DIA Amsterdam
La Parisienne Assurances addresses the fast-changing customer behavior by designing new Data-driven Services, and in particular through connected devices. The possibilities are infinite about automating pay per use insurance or automated claims payment when you create your sensors, have access to a network and own an insurance platform that offers insurance as a service through API and blockchain.
