“Insurance: Connected”

Last year's Executive Forum posed the question, “Will digital insurance (InsurTech) disrupt traditional insurance processes and products in the next 5 years?”

The unequivocal answer is “No – it's happening now.”

Large insurers have segregated digital teams from core IT to roll out new processes. New entrants, who operate exclusively on digital platforms, are offering new, bespoke products and services.

Millennial and Gen Z consumers run their personal and professional lives off mobile platforms. Their message to insurers is simple: “Insurance must be as connected as we are.”

The 2017 Insurance-Canda.ca Executive Forum will share invaluable experience and expertise to help you respond to this unprecedented environment.

Thought-leading presentations including ...

Keynote: “The Future of Insurance is InsurTech”

Matteo Carbone

Matteo Carbone, Founder & Director, Connected Insurance Observatory

Matteo Carbone advises insurance companies to become “InsurTechs” in order to reach strategic objectives. He believes that we will see a completely changed insurance sector in the medium-term. But this may be more nuanced than many assume.

Digital transformation goes well beyond simply eliminating “the middle man.” Digital transformation in the insurance industry is widespread and encompasses all of the functions in the insurance value chain, from marketing through sales to underwriting and claims. Every insurance sector player – whether a reinsurer, a carrier or an intermediary – should pose this question: how should the insurance value chain be reshaped by using the new technologies?

In his keynote presentation, Carbone will discuss his classification framework for InsurTech, including a new paradigm – connected insurance – which will yield 4 main benefits:

  • Frequency of interaction;
  • Bolstering the bottom line;
  • Knowledge creation;
  • Sustainability.

Matteo Carbone is the founder of the Connected Insurance Observatory and a global InsurTech thought leader.
