Good planning, management and transparency will be vital. This is where leading edge technology can play an essential role in keeping track of infection risks, vaccination results, reducing the extra massive administration overheads and ensuring less contact or touch in order to avoid transmission. Gathering all of the precious data and processing/analysing it in real-time is key for quick decision making in times of crisis.

  • Insurance in a Post-COVID-19 World Recorded: Mar 2 2021 43 mins
    Kenneth Koh,Principal/ Director of Insurance, Global Financial Services Practice, SAS
    COVID-19 is one of the biggest global events and challenges in our lifetime. Pervasive not just in its spread, but also in the impacts to how and where we work.

    COVID-19 will force insurance companies, agents and brokers to re-think how they engage with customers and employees alike. What is traditional is being replaced by new habits and behaviors that will endure past the crisis. Through the various lenses, we see customer expectations anchoring on digital sales and servicing; agents and brokers selling virtually and servicing remotely; employees reskilling and adapting to digital ways of working; and leaders challenged to engage and motivate their workforces from afar. All while IT infrastructures are tested and pushed to the limits, highlighting the imperative for technology to keep pace with the demands in the ‘New Normal’.

    In adversity, an opportunity arises to understand, re-assess, and position for the future. Join us in this webinar as we share our latest insights from listening to our clients’ concerns and our own research, as we explore the future of sales, the evolving workplace, and the possibilities with data gathered from the more digitalized world to thrive again in the post-COVID-19 world.

    Join this webinar to learn:
    - Becoming the insurer of the future by accelerating digital transformation activities to meet the new standards of distribution sales and client experiences
    - Supporting the distribution channels in the new norm such as virtual selling, digital prospecting and remote servicing to build a network of opportunities and prospects
    - Reframing data and insights capabilities to develop intelligent decisioning that can be applied across the insurance value chain
    - Maintaining a connection in the new ways of working with clients, producers and workforce
  • Enterprise Model Risk and Governance in Financial Services in APAC Recorded: Feb 25 2021 42 mins
    Steven Claxton, Head of Risk, ASEAN, SAS
    Analytic, statistical and increasingly AI-based models permeate every aspect of any financial institution and capture much of that organization's intellectual property, making model management and governance a strategic priority.

    Of course, all models simplify reality by making assumptions and emphasizing some performance criteria over others. At one extreme, we have many relatively simple but rapidly evolving scoring models combining different attributes to evaluate customers' propensity to perform some action, like click on a web page, or buy a product. By their nature, these highly dynamic models get quick feedback on their effectiveness and can themselves be scored as part of a statistical experiment or incorporated into an Auto-ML/stepwise regression framework.

    More complex scoring models have a longer delay before the predicted event – like a loan default or an insurance claim, and this means results are inherently uncertain and require a rigorous statistical process before they can be modified. A final group of models are even more complex, such as ALM, RWA, and stress testing models, have many submodels, many data sources, many assumptions drawn from many stakeholders.

    “At the heart of any of these models are questions of transparency, explainability and inherent risk.”

    In this webinar, Steven Claxton from SAS and Dr. Chris Marshall from IDC will explore the range of approaches financial services in Asia use to develop, validate, manage and govern different types of models, discussing some common pitfalls and good practices.

    What you'll learn
    - Learn best practices across the region for developing, managing and governing different types of financial models
    - Discover what Asia Pacific regulators look for in model governance
    - Find the typical challenges financial services face validating and explaining models to regulators
    - Future proofing model validation & governance for the AI/ML wave
  • Protecting Digital Interactions in the World of Increased Scams Recorded: Feb 23 2021 46 mins
    Ian Holmes, Global Head of Banking Fraud, SAS
    On top of widespread suffering from a global health perspective, the Coronavirus pandemic has given rise to a variety of scams that significantly increase the risk of identity and credential-theft. As consumers seek credit solutions to support their disrupted income, fraudsters are hiding amongst the commotion, using identity theft to commit application fraud. In parallel, customer behavior is changing. Closure of branches and the desire to bank from home are migrating vast numbers to the digital world, making it harder to distinguish between the genuine customer and the imposter.

    What are the opportunities to protect the identities, applications and payment channels being threatened by the fraudsters?

    In this webinar, experts look at how Machine Learning and other advanced and emerging techniques can help detect fraud in real-time with greater precision than ever.

    Join this webinar to explore:
    - How technology can help to detect fraud faster and at lower cost, protecting your reputation and keeping customer satisfaction high through better management of false positives.
