About Rich Fischer
Chief Product Officer & Actuary
What made you decide to join the SafetyNet team?
The opportunity to apply my broad-based insurance expertise to help solve a very real consumer financial hardship for millions of hardworking people was intriguing. I also knew this would be a new learning experience – to try unfamiliar approaches and learn innovative ways to weave consumer feedback into insurance product design.
What are you most passionate about in your work at SafetyNet? Insurance is a solution often overlooked by consumers, but it can protect so many from unplanned financial hardships. This translates in to a passion to communicate and show the value planning and protecting for the future can have in improving consumers’ financial health and ultimately their physical and emotional health.
What is the first big item or experience you saved up for?
An IBM XT right out of school – which dates me – but it was about constant learning and I choose that over a new vehicle.
Name three words that you believe describe you.
Family, Fun, and Dedication
