Sharing economy & new mobility

More flexibility, evolving risks

Mobility itself is on the move. Today, privately owned vehicles aren’t the only way that people and goods move around. In fact, they share the road with a variety of other modes of transportation, including: ride hailing, on-demand delivery, auto subscription, vehicle sharing, micromobility, and autonomous vehicles.

But when vehicles are shared and technology is evolving, where are the risks, threats, and liabilities? How are claims addressed and resolved?

To fulfill its potential, new mobility needs an equally agile and flexible insurance carrier along for the ride. By working with an insurer that knows the lay of the land — down to every twist, turn, and potential pothole — new mobility providers can not only create superior products and services, but better position themselves for growth further along the road.
