InsurTech is extending its reach into every corner of insurance, reducing friction costs, expanding use of internal and external data, introducing new risk covers, and improving the all-important customer experience. New entrants – armed with advanced technologies and innovative approaches – are developing technologies and leveraging sophisticated tools and controls to better face the competition. And forward-thinking insurers and distributors are following suit.

InsurTechTO will examine the current state of the business of insurance, the forces having an impact, and the trends shaping the future, including:

  • enhancing consumer engagement;
  • new insurance products and services;
  • omni-channel distribution and customer service models;
  • collaborative development reducing time to market;
  • new business models; and
  • digital transformation.

Learn from InsurTech leaders how you can prepare for the next generation of insurance

Experience the dynamics of InsurTech with tech start-ups, practitioners, and facilitators.

  • Learn how others have taken advantage and become InsurTechs.
  • Learn from InsurTechs which are now in business.
  • Assess how InsurTechs differ from traditional competitors.
  • Hear about possible forms that InsurTech may take.
  • See key obstacles that have been overcome, and are anticipated for tomorrow.
  • Uncover the opportunities which have arisen because of InsurTech.

Additional sessions in development include:

  • Incumbent Practitioners Adjusting Course — Some incumbents may be waiting to see where the dust settles but most have taken action in response to the new products being offered by InsurTech startup insurance practitioners and to the new InsurTech(nologies) available in the market to improve processes and the customer experience.
  • New and Emerging Technologies — How are the new technologies like hype-cycle AI, ML, Blockchain, Voice etc playing out; what impact may they have and when; and what else is just behind the curtains waiting to emerge.
  • InsurTech and the rapidly changing broker ecosystem — Canada is unique in the world based on the share of insurance it services. There have always been some "wild duck" brokers, but the leadership and adoption of InsurTech thinking, innovation and technology adoption has been dramatic. Explore further.
  • Claims is benefiting from the InsurTech mantra — Although distribution may have been the early focus of InsurTech, the "customer experience" (CX) centrepiece and frictionless concepts apply equally – perhaps more so – to claims.

A pundit noted that things in insurance have never changed this quickly before, but they will never change this slowly again.
