When we wrapped 2022, we did a list of the pod’s top ten episodes. This year was a bit different.

AIP split into two shows and birthed a brand new podcast we called InsurTech Amplified to give us the opportunity to cover all of the excitement in the Insurance and InsurTech spaces outside of Asia. This allowed us to broaden our guest list to the entire globe. This also means that we rotate weekly between InsurTech Amplified and Asia InsurTech Podcast.

This year we covered our top 5 AIP episodes, our top 9 countries and the top ten topics we covered all year. All in all, 2023 was an amazing year for the podcast and we expecting even bigger things for 2024.

Here are 2023’s top 5:

5. Jeffrey Khoo – Vice Chairman APAC at Arbol – Why Am I So in Love With Parametric Insurance –

4. Tom Gerritsen – AIA – This is the iPhone Moment of AI –

3. Amit Patel – co-Founder and CEO at Peachy – It’s Time to Rewrite the Proposition –
