Prudential Singapore calls for fintech scale-ups
Prudential Singapore has announced the second edition of its digital innovation programme, the PRU Fintegrate Partnership, is now open to scale-ups from around the world.
The infographic below highlights the areas in which this year’s programme is focusing on, which include preventative healthcare, enterprise solutions, customer engagement and underwriting.
Wilf Blackburn, CEO, says these represent key areas that Prudential is transforming within its business.
“PRU Fintegrate is about charting the future of insurance,” he adds. “This means creating truly great customer experiences, working smarter and complementing the efforts of our financial consultants to provide customers with valuable advice and solutions in meeting their changing needs.”
Launched in 2017, PRU Fintegrate aims to mix fintech, insurtech, healthtech and medtech ideas and solutions.
This year, finalists will be helped to develop their proof of concept, with the final group invited to showcase solutions in Singapore and start a fully-paid pilot programme of their solutions in 2019.
The selection criteria for the programme is based on the solution’s scale and speed. Other participation criteria include a valid product set, an existing customer base and secured funding.
Applications for this year’s session of the PRU Fintegrate Partnership programme must be submitted by 16 September 2018.
