Startups are making the sale of insurance products more efficient, faster, and more attractive. But while the broker business will feel the impact of this, the development will not endanger the actual business model behind insurance. However, other attackers are currently straining at the starting line who will use technologies like blockchain and artificial intelligence not only to redefine insurance sales, but to completely automate them – along with claims management and risk calculation as well.
Smartphones will come to be replaced by new forms of interaction between humans and machines. In the future people will use gestures and consensual telepathy to communicate. This will lead to new customer behavior and to completely different needs. Objects will belong to themselves and will act autonomously: Imagine a self-driving taxi that has no human owner and knows where and when money can best be made, and how often it needs to drive itself in for repairs.
Many questions will arise from this: What insurance products will “self-driving commerce” automatically develop, market, and sell? Will cryptocurrency players have enough capital to displace insurance companies? What will an “electronic person” actually look like as an insurance consumer? Can electronic persons be insurance providers as well?
We are extremely excited about answering these questions together with you and other participants. Together, we want to develop visions for the future world of insurance in the setting of a dedicated think tank. This think tank will be a neutral platform for companies in the DACH region where future trends and strategies can be discussed and developed into joint projects. As a member of our think tank, we invite you join us twice per year for a one-and-a-half-day think tank session. The result of these meetings will be concrete projects that are then realized by think tank members.
