    💀Life insurance 💀 is an industry worth over £60bn annually in the UK. 52.8% being generated from revenue and 47.2% generated from investment income. Public opinion of life insurance is at a record high, with over 80% identifying that they desire better life insurance cover and more flexibility as to coverage. Although the availability, on-boarding and barrier to entry is extremely outdated.  We are looking to develop an intuitive platform to showcase our first-of-a-kind insurance products.

    Project Lloyd is redefining three levels of life insurance:

    One - The market and product offering. We are not wanting to build the new disruptive product. We want to work with the insurance companies and create a two-tiered market place, as well as a two-tiered product offering.

    Two - The awareness around life insurance is outdated and at times, overly emotional. We want to embrace a new way of learning and understanding life insurance.

    Three - We want to build Project Lloyd for the now and the future. Growth is our caffeine and transparency is at our core.

    🔒 We value security, sustainability and transparency. We are prioritising early day partners who share these values. Cyber security will not only become more important, but compliance will increase and we know blockchain and AI will revolutionise this industry.

    🎨 This is an exciting opportunity to play a creative, hands-on role for what will become a product that will make people say “I literally can’t remember what I used before it!”.
