Rachael Gore, Head of Digital Content for Intelligent Insurer, said:
“The world of commerce is changing at an unprecedented rate, and commercial insurers are struggling to keep up. Today’s products are solving yesterday’s problems, and clients are no longer willing to accept opaque, inflexible and inefficient cover. Commercial insurers who fail to confront these issues risk losing market share to innovative managing general agents (MGAs) and insurtechs. This event will give insurers the winning edge, equipping them to evolve their operations and offerings in pace with the developments taking place within the commercial world. Those with a definitive plan can seize the opportunity to deliver better products and services for a fraction of the cost: this event will show you how.”
Speaker Pierre du Rostu, Global Head of Innovation & Business Architecture, AXA XL, said:
“Not only are new technologies disrupting every single step of the value chain; they are challenging the nature of our business itself. That is why, in the near future, there will only be two type of insurers left: the ones who have been able to adapt and embrace these changes, and the ones who have not and are just the victims of this paradigm shift.”
Speaker Darcy Shapiro, Chief Operating Officer for the Americas, Cover Genius, said:
“In the past few years, we have seen emerging technologies transform the way insurance is done across the entire insurance value chain from product development all the way through to distribution and claims handling. Today, more than ever before, there's an increasing need for innovative products and cutting-edge technologies that put these products in the hands of people and businesses to help when things go wrong. I look forward to taking part in the Commercial Lines Innovation Virtual Event to discuss the blending of personal and commercial products and what businesses can do to remain competitive in a rapidly changing landscape.”
Speaker Kevin Mooney, Senior Vice President, SME Casualty, said:
“In the last year, the world has experienced unprecedented times and the insurance industry has been forced to reinvent how we work and operate due to the pandemic. Now, more than ever, the insurance market must embrace the digital evolution. If you are planning to build a digital solution, it needs to be your top priority. If you have started your digital journey, now is the time accelerate and expand your capabilities.”
