    Against a backdrop of massive investment in technology designed to improve and transform the insurance industry, many executives are struggling with their strategic priorities in this sphere. How do they make the right strategic decisions for the long-term betterment of their companies?


    The webinar will examine:

    - Choosing the right insurtech partner
    Our panel of experts will discuss how to assess a partner, considerations around the best operational and strategic fit, and the level of innovation that is best for your business. They will also look at what type of partnership might work best: investment, client-vendor relationship or acquisition.

    - Integration: systems and culture
    The panel will talk about the value insurtech adds, from improving productivity and reducing data processing errors to optimising customer service and marketing. But, critically, how to get the best from any new technology both in terms of integration into legacy systems and getting buy-in from your organisation overall.

    - Future-proof insurtech
    How will different forms of insurtech develop in the next five to ten years and how should insurers think about technology to help them get ahead of the curve? Is the process discussed so far something that will simply be an ongoing process for the industry or is there an end point? Finally, what are the risks of not embracing insurtech now?
