Our History

2002

Frustrated with his wife’s  insurance premiums for a car she was hardly using, Fabio Sbianchi introduced telematics to the auto insurance industry. He had a vision to create a system where drivers paid a fair premium, based on their real driving, allowing them to be treated as an individual not just a number.
