In this episode of The Insurance Technology Podcast, Reid speaks to “the man, the myth, the legend,” Kabir Syed, about his accidental journey into InsurTech. While not a technologist, a programmer or a broker, his love for research, data and solving problems led to happy accidents throughout his career. Serving in 14 different roles at Marsh McLennan because they “didn’t know what to do with him,” Kabir was instrumental in establishing the company’s global risk benchmarking platform, for which the company is still known today. He went on to found RiskMatch, which he grew from a startup to one of the industry’s leading analytics platforms in just four years. An InsurTech thought leader and influencer for more than two decades, Kabir is also a great storyteller as you’ll soon discover in Part 1 of this compelling conversation.
