Gone are the days when the insurance industry followed conventional ways of product design, marketing and underwriting. The global insurance landscape is witnessing a seismic transformation as changing consumer behaviours and technological innovations disrupt traditional insurance models. New technologies like blockchain, artificial intelligence and the Internet of things are opening new avenues for improved customer service and a drive towards reduced operational costs.

The theme of the upcoming FAIR 25th Conference in Bahrain: “Insurance Transformation in FAIR-Land”, will focus on such changes that will transform the insurance industry in FAIR-Land being the Afro-Asian region.

As customers are enjoying a myriad of insurance choices, the balance of power is shifting from the insurer to the insured. If one insurer cannot meet such demands, they will move onto another competitor. So, insurers need to move from policy-centric to customer-centric approaches for acquisition, up-selling, cross-selling and customer retention. Technology will naturally be a big enabler for insurers to help in this transformation.

Digital transformation has already been disrupting every front of the insurance value chain: product design, marketing, pricing, distribution, underwriting and performance monitoring. The digital capabilities enable insurers to establish enduring relationships by gaining enhanced customer knowledge and utilising such information to profile customers more effectively and fine-tune underwriting and deliver customised solutions.

With technological innovations, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), more cutting-edge devices will be capturing “Big Data” than ever before. Drones, for example, may be used to assess catastrophes quickly, safely and cheaply. Certainly, “Big Data” will be an advantage for insurers in their underwriting, pricing and fraud detection.

Disrupting technologies such as blockchain has the potential to provide a consistent, automatic contract execution environment by reducing the administrative workload of multiple stakeholders. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is also providing endless opportunities in analytics, marketing and software development for insurers who are able to leverage technology effectively. Insurers should leverage AI to streamline manual processes, cutting down on time and producing cost savings.

In short, insurers and reinsurers around the world, and especially across our FAIR-Land, need to shift from a traditionally risk-averse culture to one that encourages innovation while mitigating financial risks. To achieve this, insurers will need to tap into new sources of technologies and tools. This Conference is therefore the right place to gain deep insights into transformation happening in the insurance industry.
