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.

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.
