TLDR: Insurtech has remained steady while other fintech segments suffered declines in funding and market performance in 2023, according to a Forbes article. The payments segment experienced a 39% drop in funding, while wealthtech and capital markets tech saw declines of 75% and 50%, respectively. Insurtech, on the other hand, maintained steady funding and saw the highest number of deals among fintech segments. The article suggests that insurtech’s stability may be due to its focus on business-to-business operations, rather than consumer-facing models, which can be challenging to scale. Non-consumer insurtech companies that address more complex areas of the insurance value chain continue to gain traction and attract investor attention.

  • Insurtech’s stability may be attributed to a focus on business-to-business operations, which can be less challenging to scale compared to consumer-facing models.
  • Companies addressing complex areas of the insurance value chain and serving businesses continue to attract investor attention.
