Meet the founder

I set up Tapoly in 2016 as a result of my own experience when I decided to let my spare room through Airbnb. I didn't want to do it without insurance, and to get insurance I had to spend hours on the phone, only to be turned away by most insurers. The only one that did offer me cover wanted to charge me a fortune.

I did some research and found many other people who also felt frustrated with not being able to get the insurance that they needed. So I decided to create Tapoly, to make sure that everyone in the sharing economy can get access to a comprehensive insurance solution at a fair price.

Before I left my corporate career to set up my own business, I was an internal audit director at UBS, and previously worked for Deutsche Bank and JPMorgan, giving me a strong grounding in dealing with complex operational, regulatory and governance issues.

I believe nothing is impossible, the question is how much effort are you willing to make in order to achieve your goals. When putting together the Tapoly team, I chose like-minded enthusiastic people with in-depth experience in insurance and technology, to help me create a fantastic customer experience for everyone who is looking for on-demand insurance.
