Our Story

INSTANDA’s beginning is much like many other technology breakthrough – born from a frustration of how legacy systems were holding back insurance productivity. Its founders knew there had to be a better way.

With a shared ambition and years of hands-on CIO-level experience of working with major insurance businesses and insurance software providers, they set about to transform the protracted insurance product roadmap. To prove that it didn’t have to be this way.

“Mass customisation and low distribution costs are two of the biggest technology opportunities in the insurance market today and yet, for many, they’re two of the biggest challenges. INSTANDA meets the challenge head on.”

INSTANDA CEO and Co-founder Tim Hardcastle

In place of the slow, inflexible, expensive and inhibitive insurance product roadmap now stands INSTANDA; a solution that’s rapidly deployable, agile, low cost, innovative and self-configurable.

Quite simply, INSTANDA is

Insurance. Technology. Decoded

With the freedom to innovate more quickly, across multiple territories and currencies, INSTANDA’s UK and global clients range from the world’s largest insurance providers to new insurance ventures.
