How to embrace the sector's new challenges

Companies in the insurance industry are actively embracing new challenges, making the sector more dynamic than ever. Changes are everywhere, with demographic trends, evolving consumer behaviours, technology advancements and increasing competition all front of mind for decision makers in this field. Operational efficiency is also becoming increasingly important in the low interest rate environment, and further changes are being brought about by new regulations, such as the Insurance Mediation Directive and its potential impact on distribution channels.

The proliferating number of insurance technology companies are also contributing to the mind-boggling explosion of new products, services, business models and new entrants.

Efma’s Insurance Summit will explore how insurance companies can develop new lines, grow their business and adapt to evolving customer behaviours and expectations.

The event will be of particular interest to senior executives involved in distribution, digital channels, transformation, business development, innovation, strategy and more. Attendees will hear from a number of respected industry figures, who will take the stage to share in-depth presentations on their processes, as well as new players who will explain how they intend to challenge the incumbents. Delegates will also have the chance to network with peers and converse about some of the biggest issues facing the industry today.

Topics of discussion at the Insurance Summit will include:
The importance of traditional channels such as agents, brokers, direct and bank assurance
How insurers can best use leads generated through direct marketing, P2P, social networks and aggregators
How will digital continue to disrupt the insurance sector and how do insurers react? From the internet of things to telematics and big data
How to best combine the channels in a multi-access environment
The impact of new regulation on distribution
