InsurTech Fundamentals and Compliance Strategies for Implementation

Event Dates: May 2, 2018
Industries: Insurance | InsurTech

InsurTech — it’s not just for startups anymore. Insurance companies are utilizing innovative technology in all stages of the insurance lifecycle. New distribution models are critical for marketing to millennials, which are now the largest living generation. Big data enables insurers to more effectively underwrite policies and detect fraud. Blockchain has the potential to drastically increase efficiency for administrative functions, and artificial intelligence has tremendous promise in improving claims handling. Failing to keep up with innovation is a serious challenge and enterprise risk that must be met.

What initially started as a potentially disruptive force, has transformed into a remarkable opportunity for insurers to reach new clients, create a better customer experience, improve risk selection, reduce expenses and operate more efficiently. Join us for a seminar addressing new technologies that will affect nearly every aspect of insurers’ day-to-day operations — from distribution to claims — and their compliance strategies for implementing these new technologies. Our speakers Jeremy Heinnickel and Jim Gkonos, members of the Firm’s InsurTech Practice, are joined by Alison Beam of the Pennsylvania Insurance Department Michael Fitzgibbon of Slice, Leonard Steinmetz of Grant Thorton and Christopher McDaniel of RiskBlock Alliance.

Follow along on social media using the hashtag #SAULInsurTech101 for updates. This CLE will also be available via live stream.
