On-demand insurance offers customers flexibility of cover that is easy and convenient to buy and paying only for what they need when they need it.
The partnership with Slice Labs Inc is another step in Legal & General’s commitment to invest in new technology and intend to use Slice Labs Insurance Cloud Services™ (ICS) platform to roll out on-demand homeshare insurance and other products to their customers. Founded in October 2015 Slice Labs provides tailored insurance offerings for home sharing costs.
The two companies are, working together on the development of web and mobile applications, as well as using big data, AI, and machine learning to develop the homeshare product.
Cheryl Agius, CEO of Legal & General’s Insurance division said, “Our new partnership with Slice will allow us to use the latest technology that is fundamentally changing the way people buy insurance. Customers who share their homes such as through Airbnb want to buy insurance quickly and easily and when they need it. This insurance proposition is part of our strategy to continue to transform insurance with data and technology led solutions that enhance customers’ experience.”
Tim Attia, CEO of Slice Labs said, “We’re honoured to be working with one of the UK’s largest insurance groups, as they leverage our ICS platform. The UK homeshare market is in desperate need of on-demand insurance so we’re proud to work with L&G to bring it to fruition. We view this initial project as a gateway to the development of other on-demand and more traditional insurance products”.

The authorized generics will launch at a list price of $24,000 for the most common course of therapy and will be available in January 2019.
