Winning With Innovation

Innovation is rewriting the insurance playbook at an increasing pace, for individuals and businesses alike, propelled by successive waves of new offerings in computing, communications and data.

At a higher level, the race is on in areas from cloud, APIs and data analysis/analytics to the rock star of the current moment, GenAI.

Insurance Innovations Take Advantage

Longtime insurance products are being enhanced with new digital features, bringing new growth to embedded, on-demand and parametric insurance.

From industry-specific digital ecosystems, the value equation of cross-industry connections is bringing enhanced benefits to multiple industries, including insurance.

Innovations Fuel Trends

Explore the key topics and trends, learn from the speakers how innovations are creating new value and enhancing service to insurance consumers, both personal and commercial.

Look ahead to see how leaders may leverage three macro trends:

  • Increasing personalization,
  • Precision underwriting, and
  • Predict (detect) and Prevent

... all to meet consumers’ needs and satisfy their expectations.

ICEF2024: “Winning with Innovation” will bring together industry thought leaders and pioneers who are taking advantage of new models and platforms.

Explore the evolving insurance horizon, learn from examples of recent innovations and discussions about what's unfolding and assess your status and plans.

Hear from industry thought leaders, including:

Top Trends for Insurance in 2024 and Beyond

Denise Garth
Chief Strategy Officer

Denise Garth

Insurance businesses – insurers, MGAs, brokers – must move beyond a legacy mindset (“this is how insurance is done”) to one that recognizes the world has shifted. Companies that prioritize innovation and agility are widening the gap over less capable competitors by delivering new products, entering new markets, and establishing new revenue streams. Meanwhile the laggards struggle to make headway with incremental improvements. Insurers need to double down on investing in a new business model and technology to ensure the right formula for profitable growth. Learn more.
