Genre: Non-Fiction, Business
Change is coming to insurance. The tradition-bound P&C industry is on the cusp of the most radical change since the invention of the automobile. And leaders are unprepared for the size, scale, and speed of what’s to come from the wave of millennials, new technology, and venture capital funding coming our way.
Insurance has been largely immune to upheavals for reasons that start-ups do not comprehend. Brand recognition, reams of customer data, legal contracts and regulation all make insurance much harder to conquer for insurtech start-ups.
But this time is truly different. Forces have been unleashed that will upend the industry sooner than you think. Collaborate or compete? Start small or go big? Pure tech play or MGA? “The End of Insurance As We Know It” bridges the divide between the traditional players, startups, and investors to show the areas where opportunities for disruption are ripe and what technologies you need to know about to stay relevant in our revolutionary time. Learn why insurance is the perfect digital product and gain a competitive edge no matter where you stand today in the ecosystem.
