Luke Magnan was introduced to me by a close friend who told me that Luke was the most thoughtful insurance technologist my friend had ever worked with. In this episode of Profiles in Risk, Luke and I discuss his startup Combined Ratio Solutions, the advantages & disadvantages of bootstrapping vs raising venture funds, the state of the insurtech market, how insurers allow legacy systems to get out of control (and how insurers who have prevented that from happening, did it) and using off-shore resources from Russia. Luke brings a wealth of wisdom to insurance and technology and shares it with us in this episode.
