About Pineapple

Pineapple set out to change the traditional insurance model by increasing the value of insurance for you. Our unique model reduces the heavy expenses, fraud and profit margins other companies might have.

The Pineapple founding team was part of an innovation competition run by Hannover-Re during 2016. Through a design thinking process Pineapple realised that the mistrust and inefficiency in the insurance system reduces the value for everyone.

The Pineapple model aims to achieve affinity, fairness and simplicity to decrease costs, cap profits and deter fraud in an effort to create more value from an insurance policy than the traditional model.

Pineapple started to develop their system in August 2017 and launched to the public on 27 July 2018.

The product is underwritten by Compass Insure, a subsidiary of Hannover-Re.
