CHALLENGES

  • Betting on Light Electric Vehicles’ take-off. Fintonic and Metlife are relying on a well-established trend. In Spain, and in France, too, additional insurance offers are needed when riding these next-generation vehicles.
  • Consolidating their presence on the insurance market. Fintonic already expanded their set of offers. They let their 700,000 users aggregate their insurance contracts (for a clearer overview), and be informed of more affordable alternatives.

MARKET PERSPECTIVE

  • Light Electric Vehicles are all the more criticised (e.g.: electric scooters in Paris) that this sector is booming. More offers see the day: for instance, an e-scooter service launched by former Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt.
  • Insurance companies and bancassurers soon reacted to this market evolution (see recent announcement by LCL).
  • The offer by Fintonic and Metlife, however, relies on a different marketing model. As they use Fintonic’s aggregation platform, Metlife are provided access to a new distribution channel and can test an Open Banking-based business model.
  • After several banks started featuring financial services on this marketplace (e.g.: BBVA), insurance offers are now covered, as well.
