ELEMENT Insurance AG: 100% cloud-based partner for digital insurance products
The insurance industry is facing a digital reality. Its effect can be seen in changes throughout the value chain from underwriting to distribution. With rigid legacy systems, this is quite challenging for many insurance companies and brokers.
ELEMENT is a technology-driven insurance company from Berlin, combining the worlds of technology and insurance. ELEMENT provides insurers with plug-and-play customizable insurance products that can be implemented via API. Its product platform and smart APIs empower insurers to integrate completely digital insurance solutions into an insurer’s portfolio or product landscape.
The InsurTech enables companies from both insurance and non-insurance industries to offer digital insurance products to their customers. As a fully licensed risk carrier by BaFin, ELEMENT operates in the P&C sector across 20 lines of business. ELEMENT acts as an enabler to the insurance ecosystem, whether it is an insurance incumbent with legacy systems struggling to keep up with the speed of innovation or an intermediary aiming to respond to changing customer needs or an enterprise looking for embedded insurance.
Being a licensed carrier, ELEMENT offers different ways of collaboration, dependent on the insurer’s needs. For example, if the partner doesn’t have an API, ELEMENT handles it via Bordereau. If a partner cannot handle claims, ELEMENT will. In its solutions, ELEMENT takes care of all technical and regulatory requirements so that the partner can focus on its clients using ELEMENT’s fully white-label products and solutions.
It offers a range of property and casualty products: from covers such as household and private liability over innovative mobility solutions to parametric cloud outage insurance.

Insurers can benefit from ELEMENT’s innovative digital products and flexible service model. ELEMENT works with the leading insurers in Germany such as Signal Iduna, die Bayerische and others. Together with Signal Iduna they have developed an insurance product for fans of German Premier League club BVB09, with a cashback feature – each goal from BVB enables policyholders to earn €0.09. And with die Bayerische it partnered to offer modular bike insurance according to their customer needs.
