The INSURTECH Book and The WEALTHTECH Book.

Following the 2016 publication of best-selling title, The FINTECH Book – the first globally crowdsourced book on the financial technology revolution – Wiley is pleased to announce the publication of two new titles in the series; The INSURTECH Book and The WEALTHTECH Book, again in partnership with the leading global fintech network FINTECH Circle.

With no single author, group of authors, or indeed region in the world that could cover all the facets and nuances of these subjects in an exhaustive manner, contributors and authors for both titles were crowdsourced from the global FinTech, InsurTech and WealthTech communities.

The INSURTECH Book: The Insurance Technology Handbook for Investors, Entrepreneurs and FinTech Visionaries, is a ground-breaking guide to the disruptions, innovations and opportunities that technology affords the insurance sector. Presenting the insights, current thinking and actionable strategies from 75 international topic-expert contributors, it explains why traditional ways of doing business will soon become irrelevant and offers a guide to thriving in the digital revolution.

Providing readers with the information needed to holistically connect insurance and technology, The INSURTECH Book is an invaluable source of the most current information available for entrepreneurs, innovators, insurers, investors, incumbents, analysts and consultants working in or interested in investing in this space.

Sister title, The WEALTHTECH Book: The FinTech Handbook for Investors, Entrepreneurs and Finance Visionaries provides food for thought to FinTech newbies, pioneers and well-seasoned experts alike, showing them how to work within the FinTech disruption to capture a new, more lucrative market.

With the development of digital wealth management (“WealthTech”), the global investment management industry is facing huge disruption. Considering the general trend that consumers are used to a great digital experience, most asset managers and private banks will need to closely review their product, distribution and marketing strategies over the next decade to stay in business. In addition, the pressure to lower fees and achieve higher returns has allowed WealthTech solutions to shine.

Low-cost robo-advisors, blockchain-based systems, new business models, virtual advice, and a proliferation of direct-to-client applications are already affecting the wealth management sector. This trend will only grow as global wealth continues to increase, and new technologies such as big data analytics, artificial intelligence and distributed ledger technologies enable entirely new and more cost-effective and client-responsive approaches to wealth management.

With contributions from 71 authors, The WEALTHTECH Book is the only comprehensive guide of its kind to showcase the disruption, innovation and opportunity in this space and will be an invaluable source of information for investment and fund managers, asset allocators, family offices, hedge, venture capital and private equity funds, entrepreneurs and start-ups alike.
