Apple Podcasts Rate and Review for SpotOn

Nestor Solari is the Co-Founder and CEO of Sigo Seguros, an inclusive car insurance provider that primarily serves immigrants and other working-class populations who can’t purchase traditional auto insurance. The company seeks to extend a helping hand to those whose financial metrics aren’t seen as ideal by most insurance industries. Nestor believes the market for immigrants and other minorities locked out of traditional insurance will one day be the dominant market, and Sigo Seguros is simply leading the way. Nestor earned a degree in Finance from Penn State University, an MA in International Studies from the Lauder Institute at the University of Pennsylvania, and obtained his MBA from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

Nestor joins us to describe Sigo Seguros's vision to serve the underserved in the insurance industry. He shares the ideas that led to where Sigo Seguros is today and explains how his career in finance allowed him to have a better perspective when he started an insurance company. He discusses the challenges of being a company that serves a relatively small market. Nestor also shares what we can look forward to from Sigo Seguros in the near future.

"There's a lot of opportunity to be unlocked in building a community around insurance." - Nestor Solari
