InsurTech100 company INSTANDA hires Aviva veteran

InsurTech100 innovator INSTANDA has hired Will Wood to head of Life and Health, recruiting him from Aviva.

Wood will be responsible for growing and managing INSTANDA’s Life and Health business, which has expanded rapidly in the last two years.

“I’ve worked in the insurance industry for over 15 years,” Wood said. “But now more than ever it is clear that the future of the industry depends on insurers’ adoption of world-class technology. At Aviva I saw the potential of solutions like INSTANDA to increase efficiency and deliver cost-effective industry-leading products to customers. As Head of Life and Health, my ambition is to oversee INSTANDA’s transition to the number one solution infrastructure for insurance businesses.”

Trevor Davis, managing director of Life and Health, added, “The life and health insurance sector is at an inflection point right now. Characterised by rising claims for insurers and rising premiums for customers. The industry urgently needs a greater focus on efficiency, speed, and telematics which only technology can bring. So, we’re delighted to announce that Will is joining our team of ex-industry experts and IT professionals working to do just that. His knowledge of the market, combined with his network and contacts, will be invaluable for INSTANDA.”

INSTANDA was named as one of the 100 most innovative businesses in the InsurTech space in 2020 as part of FinTech Global’s InsurTech100 list.
