Panel: InsurTech: Phase 2

The InsurTech hype over the past two years brought over 1,500 startups into the insurance space, investments and collaboration from traditional (re)insurers. Now, the InsurTech market enters a new phase in its life cycle, with less hype and more expectations - from proof of concept to operational solutions.

New challenges when working with (re)insurers, how is relationship going and what are the hurdles to be crossed?
Which technologies are being overhyped in terms of their near term impact on the insurance industry?
Which type of companies will own the future of insurance?
Will the industry experience a ‘black swan’ event – a sudden explosion in the use of technology that will tear up the rulebook and force a drastic change in the way the re/insurance market goes about its business?

Panel: The Power of AI in commercial re/insurance

Could risk modelling become so sophisticated through the use of big data and high-powered computer processing that the human element of underwriting is vastly diminished?
Will AI technology enable and empower existing players in the market to such an extent that they are able to price risk more efficiently and accurately than ever before?

Panel: Big Data: separating winners and losers in InsurTech?

The future for Insurtech and other expressions of industry innovation may well lie in how Big Data is being applied to risk management. Both incumbents and newcomers are developing insurance products that use large amounts of data to assess, select, price, predict and prevent risks. Moreover, those in the InsurTech space are paying close attention to adherence in legal and regulatory requirements across both sides of the Atlantic, recognising that expertise in compliance may separate the winners from the losers in this increasingly competitive space.

In a continuously evolving digital economy, what are the challenges for global re/insurers and Insurtech’s in their attempts to share, manage and secure data?
What are the data protection privacy issues that arise therefrom?
What role will the future of data governance play in shaping how incumbents underwrite, price and reserve risk?
