Jamie Crystal, CEO & Co-founder: MIC Global: Simple microinsurance for everyday risks (282)

InsTech - insurance & innovation with Matthew Grant

Jan 7 2024 • 28 mins

In our first podcast of 2024, Jamie Crystal, CEO of MIC Global, discusses with Matthew Grant their aim to close the insurance protection gaps by offering insurance products tailored to the needs of underserved individuals, including income protection, identity theft protection, and incident coverage.

MIC uses a business-to-business-to-customer (B2B2C) model and all of its products are embedded within other platforms or services. MIC offers insurance products in various forms including embedded insurance methods, aiming to make the process simpler and more relevant to everyday life. Crystal highlights the company’s partnerships with brokers, digital platforms, and other insurance companies to distribute their coverage. The need for these products is global, Crystal insists, and not limited to specific demographics or regions.

Key Talking Points Include:

  • Understanding the concept of microinsurance
  • The problem MIC is solving - access to affordable products
  • The role of embedded insurance
  • The future of MIC and the insurance industry
  • Closing the insurance protection gap
