Munich Re’s provocative insurtech initiatives range from Chinese FlexiSafe, a WeChat-based non-life insurance solution that enables policyholders to adjust their various insurance covers as desired at any time, to Metabiota’s platform for estimating epidemic preparedness and risk, including the frequency, severity, duration and cost of outbreaks.
