Insuritas President Matt Chesky discusses “Why People Hate Buying Insurance” with host Josh Hollander


The process of getting the right coverage at the right price is painful, and integrating access to solutions and resources is essential.

Consumers are increasingly engaging and doing business through non-traditional banks and credit unions”

— Matt Chesky, President of Insuritas

HARTFORD, CT, USA, April 30, 2022 / — Matt Chesky, President of Insurance, a leading provider of integrated insurance solutions, believes that “people hate buying insurance because it’s painful.” Host Josh Hollander and Chesky discuss the challenges and solutions to getting the right coverage at the right price at the right time on Horton International Insurtech Leadership Podcast.

Insuritas is an “original” insurtech, founded in the late 1990s by Jeffery Chesky, Matt’s father, after the passage of the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act, also known as the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999. For two decades, the company’s mission has been to help banks and credit unions manage their own insurance agencies as a turnkey solution that increases noninterest commission revenue for financial institutions and deepens relationships of trust with customers. Insuritas believes part of the solution is to embed access to insurance products in environments where customers are already used to spending time. Matt says, “Consumers aren’t just focused on price; they want the right coverage and a relationship of trust, so allowing banks and credit unions to provide personal insurance remains a very attractive opportunity.”
