A great little post by Chris Downer of XL Innovate comparing the investment in #insurtech in the US with the UK (with some good history around the importance of insurance to San Francisco).

The message we keep hearing is that the quality (and quantity) of insurtech start-ups in the UK is superior to the US, but that the US investment architecture is many times better.  The interesting question is how will these different strengths affect the type of start-ups that really gain traction.
