The World Insurance Forum series is your launch pad to explore the most significant advances and developments in insurance, technology, and risk management.
Inspired by – or in partnership with – InsurTech innovators, the industry has shaken off its complacency: insurance leaders are already taking us in new directions which promise to transform the very nature of the business.
In partnership with organizations from Silicon Valley to Europe and around the globe, this series of virtual conferences will bring thought leaders from around the world to engage the insurance community in a look at the trends and ideas reshaping our industry for the 2020s.

The World Insurance Forum
The backdrop for this series is the current period of transformation, disruption, and ever-multiplying risks, which has brought upheaval not just to the insurance industry but to all business and life in general, on a global scale.
Insurance has entered the decade in which it will face its biggest challenges ever. In 2020, the global spread of COVID-19 has brought about dramatic changes, intensifying the industry’s digital transformation and accelerating a transition to enable Work From Home (WFH) amid the need for social distancing.
Having seen what could be done, leaders now have a better sense of the possible: significant moves can be made swiftly. Close and even distant followers now sense that urgency is the order of the day.
But the excitement is no longer about just leveraging technology – better and further – to improve all aspects of the business. It is about reinventing the whole business of insurance across the traditional insurance players, customers and providers, and beyond, to other industries for entirely new relationships.
