Insurtech Socotra Targets European Expansion for Business Growth Strategy

Socotra announces a major drive into the European insurance markets, with an initial focus on the UK, DACH, France, and others, “following strong growth in 2022, including a 71% revenue increase, a 75% growth in customers, and a 117% YoY increase in policies managed on its SaaS platform.”

Socotra sees a great need in these markets “as insurers, such as Socotra clients AXA and MS Amlin, increasingly realize the need for API-driven, cloud-first technologies that accelerate product launches, offer flexibility, and reduce IT expenses.”

Socotra Connected Core “offers insurers the power and flexibility to launch any insurance product via any distribution channel.”

Products can be easily “localized for any geography, including regulations, currency, date and address formats, and more.”

With Socotra App MarketPlace, insurers “gain instant access to industry-leading software and data providers through a simple click-to-run experience.” App MarketPlace is “available today to all Socotra customers, at no additional cost.”

Dan Woods, Socotra’s Founder and CEO, said:

“Today, many insurers are profoundly impaired by legacy technologies, and it is our mission to make high-quality technology available to all insurers, everywhere. We are greatly increasing our investments in Europe and hiring top talent on the ground. Our major push into the UK and European Union continues our commitment to helping insurers thrive around the world. Our first customer in Europe was in 2017, and since then we’ve made steady progress throughout Europe. We are seeing increasing demand for technologies like Socotra that are fast, flexible, cost-effective, and mature.”

Founded in 2014 and based in Austin, Texas, Socotra “employs specialists in Europe, including sales, support, implementation, and engineering.”

The company plans “to continue growing headcount in Europe and is bringing together insurance and technology leaders at its Socotra Connected PlatForum in London on 28 February, as well as presenting and exhibiting at Booth P7 at Insurtech Insights Europe on 1-2 March.”
