The Future of AI in Reinsurance.

As we look to the future of reinsurance, emerging technology innovations such as artificial intelligence will drive the digital transformation needed to harness new market opportunities and meet growing customer expectations. Reimagining cumbersome back-office workflows, attracting new talent, embracing software robots, and creating frictionless distribution channels are a reality, not a fad, as we gear up to service customers where and when they want to be served. With the Amazon Effect compounding higher customer expectations, revolutionizing how we do business is no longer an option. Leaders who define AI strategies that clearly articulate a strong business case for achieving corporate goals and delivering a better digital customer experience will leapfrog the competition and gain first mover advantage.


Guest Speakers:

SVP & Head of Longevity Risk Transfer, Investment & Pension Solutions, Prudential Financial, Inc

From Crisis to Opportunity: Longevity, Aging and Retirement Readiness

Presentation Overview:

On average, most Americans are living longer, healthier lives. With longer lives, many are enjoying longer, healthier retirements and it is no longer unusual to spend as many years in retirement as in work. But longevity gains in our society are increasingly only available to some. Most are financially unprepared for retirement, and very few have lifetime income from a defined benefit pension or an individual annuity. Without lifetime income, each person is a sample size of one in trying to know the unknowable, how to spend down their lifetime savings for a secure retirement that could last anywhere from 10 to 40 years. With that sobering reality, comes good news. Rising to the challenge of providing retirement security for people is a wonderful growth opportunity for our industry because insurers and reinsurers, especially those with a talent strategy focused on diversity and inclusion, are uniquely qualified to address one of the most important challenges of our time—our aging society.
