Wednesday 30 November 2022 09:06 CET | News

UK-based Open Banking infrastructure Yapily has teamed up with insurance platform Certua to simplify applying for and managing life insurance.


Together, Certua and Yapily are making it easier for people to access life insurance cover that is suited to their needs, reduce time spent on admin during the risk assessment process, and save money by ensuring individuals aren’t under or over-insured.

UK-based Open Banking infrastructure Yapily has teamed up with insurance platform Certua to simplify applying for and managing life insurance.

Inner workings of the collaboration

Using Yapily’s platform, with the customer’s consent, Certua can fetch individual bank account information such as annual income and expenses to automatically assess a person’s financial position. Certua then feeds this information into its Open Banking powered cover calculator to provide more accurate and personalised insurance policy recommendations. Individuals can receive point-in-time recommendations in minutes, without having to engage with lengthy data gathering and advice processes when applying for life insurance cover.

Helped by the FCA’s recent amendment to Open Banking’s 90 day consent rule, Yapily is also enabling Certua to continuously monitor and assess every customers’ protection needs throughout their lifetime. This ensures that coverage can be adapted to meet an individual’s changing circumstances, with many people that do have cover currently stuck on rigid fixed benefit and fixed-term products.

Saving costs on insurance referrals

Certua is also working with Yapily to explore the use of open banking data in underwriting, eliminating burdensome administrative tasks when it comes to referrals, saving insurance companies both time and money. The partnership will see an exciting roadmap of solutions added as both partners continue to expand their product suites.

Commenting on the partnership, Certua’s officials said that there is a colossal market failure in the life insurance industry. Certua are investing in and working hard to develop embedded solutions which improve the model for the entire value chain, most importantly the end customer. Yapily enables them to innovate in the life insurance space and are excited to see the impact of this on businesses and consumers together.

Yapily’s officials stated that embedded insurance and Open Banking are two disruptive movements that, together, have the power to make financial services better, simpler, and more accessible for millions of people. It’s exciting to be working with Certua in this space and accelerating towards an open economy that works for everyone. They look forward to watching the partnership grow and enabling Certua to deliver the power of Open Banking to its customers.
