However, some customers have been deterred from enrolling in insurance coverage with traditional companies, due to barriers like complicated coverage options and unclear eligibility requirements. 

Fortunately, tech-savvy insurance companies have disrupted the insurance industry, leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) and data science to offer an improved user experience at a more affordable price.

Insider Intelligence has put together a list of the top insurtech firms, which have shaken up the fintech space. We break down the features that have helped them stand out, and explore how other firms can leverage these insights to achieve success in this market.
