InsurTech Carrot Continues On Its Explosive Growth Trajectory With Written Policies Surpassing 400k Mark
Carrot General Insurance Corp., a fast-growing South Korean InsurTech, has announced that the company recently surpassed 400,000 written contracts for one of its insurance programs.
The news follows the announcement made 11 months ago that it had made 100,000 registrations back in January, Carrot said in a press release.
Speaking about the achievement, Paul Jung, CEO of Carrot, commented, "What's remarkable when you consider our accrued number of written policies is that Carrot has been commercially in operation of per-mile auto insurance service for less than two years." he continued, "this milestone validates aspects of customer value that we offer and we will continue to introduce innovative products that are fueled with technology as we move forward."
The company says that it has been receiving significant interest from potential investors in wanting to assess the appetite for Carrot's future growth potentials. Carrot's top tier customer retention rate, fast growing revenue and market share, and normalizing loss-ratio may be deemed positive factors to support investments in the company. In terms of the growth in business presence and expansion of its targeted total addressable market, Carrot is eyeing a possible acquisition and South East Asia is one of the geographies under consideration.
"We are well placed to pursue both organic and inorganic growth opportunities. Our digital lines of products, extensive technology development, strong relationships with partners and major distributors, and the supportive market backdrop will enable us to continue to play a key role in driving the evolution of insurance," Jung said.
He also noted that the company is strengthening an open innovation strategy through active collaborations with external partners to further broaden its service offerings, as well as achieve technology advancements. Accordingly, the company is close to signing a JV agreement whereby it will focus its efforts on advancing Carrot's IoT (internet of things) technologies, expanding its applications while ensuring a sustainable supply of devices. Lately, the company also announced that it has formed a JV with other general insurance peers to offer tech-based claims management services to its customers while realizing efficiencies through process automation.
Considering Carrot's incredible track record and its ambitious future plans, keeping an eye on the company's upcoming executions may be well worth the effort.
