Improving the Success of InsurTech Opportunities Including a Guide for Risk

Monday 22 October 2018 17:00 - 19:00

The Risk Management in a Digital World working party was formed in response to the ever increasing influence that the digital world is having on the insurance sector.

By commissioning a survey and carrying out interviews with key individuals and companies from both within and outside the Actuarial Profession, the Working Party has considered both the appropriateness of existing Enterprise Risk Management Frameworks and the capability of practitioners within insurance companies in the context of InsurTech.

The Working Party will present their report and findings at this sessional research event and will use the opportunity to launch their 'Guide for Risk Considerations During the Innovation Journey', in order to support the further development of risk considerations in decision making throughout the InsurTech investment process.

The event will include a presentation of the report then an interactive Q&A session, with event attendees feedback fed into the next phase of the project.
