Frequently Asked Questions

There are plenty of insurtechs and fintechs out there. Why are you different?
We’re totally new - the size of and scope of what insurance and reinsurance needs to cover (e.g. climate, cyber/intangibles, etc) requires that the industry has access to dynamic capital seeking a return, still with the infrastructure to make sure capital is there to pay the insureds and more. All this needs to be regulated.
That’s why we have created AkinovA: we’re not a broker, we’re not a carrier, we’re an “Insurance Marketplace” and we are neutral and digital.
