  • Strategic Innovation in the Large Commercial Property Insurance Business Recorded: Oct 13 2021 59 mins
    Insider Engage
    Business Digital innovations, from AI to InsurTech platforms, are gathering momentum across the global P&C industry.

Sansone, Property & CUO Americas Property for Axa XL; Mike McGavick, former CEO of XL Capital; and Hemant Shah, CEO of Archipelago and former co-Founder and CEO of RMS.

  • Points of Interest Just Got More Interesting Recorded: Sep 22 2021 57 mins
    Insider Engage
    Insurers are no strangers to data science. As one of the most data mature industries, insurance has relied on location data for assessing risk to both property and people for decades. But while points of interest (POIs) are widely used in risk analytics, recent advances in both their collection and processing have opened up new use cases ranging from usage-based insurance to general liability. Foot traffic associated to POIs is now changing the way insurers write policies and respond to claims.

    Given that customer injury and slip, trip, and fall risk is directly related to the number of customers who walk into a location, leveraging up-to-date and accurate geospatial data is the most effective and accurate way to assess risk. POI data can provide the necessary context for a particular place, but foot traffic data delivers a new level of detail around how consumers interact with that place.

    Key Takeaways:
    - Location-based data has long been a fundamental requirement for many insurance businesses, but new data streams are now empowering underwriters to make more detailed pricing decisions
    - Footfall data can help underwriters better assess liability risks, and understand the risk profile of their assets in more details
    - Increasingly, predictive analytics can help insurers understand trends in footfall and risk profiles, allowing better and more targeted risk selection

    Join experts from SafeGraph, Esri, and Celent on September 22 as they discuss how the latest POI and mobility data are advancing geospatial analytics in insurance.

  • Gender equality post-Covid – championing female talent in insurance Recorded: Sep 16 2021 61 mins
    Catrin Shi, Editor in Chief, Insurance Insider
    The lack of women in senior positions across the insurance industry has been a much-discussed issue for some time, but the pandemic has shifted the playing field once again. Data from UN Women has suggested the coronavirus pandemic could wipe out 25 years of increasing gender equality. How should the (re)insurance industry rethink how it attracts, hires and retains female employees in the new working environment to level the playing field and ultimately benefit from a wider pool of talent?

    This session will focus on practical ways in which companies can help mitigate the effects of the pandemic on the careers of women and examine whether there are elements of post-pandemic working life we can leverage to generate better opportunities for women at work. It will also feature case studies from women who have successfully returned to work and are enjoying a new career and opportunities in insurance.

    How has the pandemic affected women’s advancement in the workforce and progress toward closing the gender pay gap? What has the reality of life been for working women during Covid-19?
    The actions employers can take to accommodate for different working environments and family structures in a new hybrid work environment - prioritising flexibility, inclusivity and equity
    The focus on talent and the return to work - progressive workplace policies, the language around job adverts and prioritising career progression
    The male champion – the role male colleagues can play in supporting women at work
    Closing the gap between the proportion of women in junior management and senior management

  • The Future of Social Inflation: Will the claims environment ever improve? Recorded: Sep 16 2021 61 mins
    Insider Engage
    Social inflation has long been an issue for insurers, particularly in the highly litigious US market where the increasing sophistication of the plaintiff’s bar, the rise of the millennial and Gen-Z juror, and ever-increasing jury awards are all driving up claims costs. In this exclusive webinar in partnership with Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA), Insider Engage brings together key stakeholders to analyze and discuss what the future holds for social inflation and litigation risk, as well as what the insurance industry can do to help mitigate these rising costs.

    Proposed points for discussion:
    • What are some of the main trends affecting litigation costs and social inflation?
    • What is the driving force behind increased jury awards?
    • How has the rise of for-profit litigation funders affected the claims environment?
    • And how are jury psychologists affecting the size of payments being awarded?
    • Rising rebuilding costs have also been a factor behind rising social inflation, what has been the cause of this?
    • What does this mean for reserving practices, given that social inflation is inherently difficult to model and predict?
    • Are insurers needing to hold more capital now to account for this inflation?
    • Can we expect to see prices increase as a result of this?
    • Is there anything the insurance industry can do to mitigate these increased costs?

  • Ransomware and BI: From prevention to loss mitigation Recorded: Sep 30 2020 62 mins
    Insurance Insider
    Register free for our upcoming webinar in association with CrowdStrike.

    While ransomware is not a ‘new’ cyber threat, a steady increase in the severity and frequency of attacks is now starting to pose a persistant threat to the profitability of the cyber insurance market.

    Hackers are becoming more sophisticated and – if managed poorly – the disruption to the affected business can be drawn out and destructive, amplifying the cost to both the victim and insurers.

    With ransomware attacks such as Garmin and Blackbaud becoming both increasingly high profile and frequent, how can the insurance industry and cyber security vendors work together to mitigate the losses for both the client and insurers?

    Up for discussion:

    - How are ransomware attacks evolving and how prevalent is this threat now?
    - How significant is the BI element of a ransomware insurance claim and how is this trending?
    - How can the insurance industry work with cyber security vendors more closely to manage/minimise the BI element of the claim?
    - Does working with chosen cyber security vendors significantly amplify the cost of cyber insurance? Is the perceived expensiveness of cyber cover still a deterrent to prospective buyers?
    - How are the insurance industry and cyber security vendors working with insureds to encourage best practice and loss prevention with ransomware? Is enough attention given to the idea of prevention in insurer-client discussions?

    Insurance Insider
    Join us on Wednesday, 23 September at 10:00am (BST) to hear from an expert panel on how to ensure you hear the lastest of the London Market as it relates to technology, innovation and IT.


    Disucssion points will include:

    Is innovation possible without regularly reviewed operating models? What are the challenges in evaluating operating models?
    Are practitioners in the London Market (and Insurance market in general) too focussed on achieving ‘in year’ returns on investment?
    Is it the role of IT companies to demonstrate the longer term benefits of adoption and / or more operational changes?
    Why do you think the market has been slow to respond to data standards?

    Is the way forward collectively pursuing and enabling digitisation in a standardised manner?
