How does Ticker combine both a data-led, technology-based approach and a holistic approach across the company for both a complete customer picture and accuracy in pricing?

“Data is at the heart of the business, but creativity is also very important to us. It starts with an exec that’s made up of experts in a wide range of disciplines, and that filters down to hiring. As a remote-first business, we have access to a wider pool of people from diverse backgrounds, which means we get the different ways of thinking that we need. Across the business, we might have a data scientist working on a customer experience project with a product designer and a pricing analyst.”

What gap in the telematics market did you see as the inspiration for Ticker and does this still inform the central objectives for the company two years on?

“Before I launched Ticker, I was starting to notice that many groups beyond young drivers were struggling to get insured affordably. I’d previously built one of the first connected insurers, and I knew that the benefits could be taken to a much wider market. That’s still the goal. We’re building propositions designed for specific audiences, but with the aim of achieving mass-market coverage.”
