TINtech London Market 2018 - The Insurance Network

TINtech London Market 2018

TINtech London Market 2018
The event exploring how technology is driving innovation, enabling change and collapsing the London market value chain

6th February 2018 | Holborn, London

Across the value chain business leaders are exploring how technology can overcome structural change brought about by increased competition from other jurisdictions, the pressure to reduce operating costs, and the need to innovate in order to meet changing client expectations.

The critical task for directors is to understand how and where technology can be deployed to meet these challenges, to develop a successful change management strategy to ensure successful implementation, and to build in agility to grasp future opportunities.

TINtech London Market is not about the technicalities of processing or standards, and it’s not another InsurTech ‘show & tell’ – it’s the forum where business and IT leaders come together to explore the extraordinary shifts taking place in the market and how to leverage the potential of the new technologies that are driving change.

Topics to be discussed this year include:

  • Understanding how to devise and deploy an effective digital strategy that builds competitive advantage
  • Which new technologies are disrupting and extracting value from the value chain?
  • Leveraging AI, machine learning and robotics to streamline operations and take out cost
  • Creating client interactions that are convenient and fast
  • Using technology to get closer to customers to devise products, solutions and a service that they really need

16:30 Closing Panel Discussion

Insurance Industry 4.0

Will Cyber-Physical Systems be the saviour of the London market?

Cyber-Physical Systems will transform the world of risk, enabling autonomous mobile systems, medical monitoring, process control systems, robotic systems and automatic pilot avionics - to name just a few. The question is will this new, hyperconnected world create the burning platform for transformative change in the London market’s products, services and processes…or is it simply too late?

Our expert panel will explore the changes that are on the horizon, their potential impact on the industry and how we should respond.

Topics to be discussed:

  • Are we at a tipping point? Is technology driven change revolutionising the nature of risk and the insurance that London offers? Or is it business as usual?
  • Is there still time to innovate the traditional linear value chain into a set of dynamic networks?
  • Do we have the appetite, skills and capabilities to meet the challenge?
  • What does the London market of the future look like, and what will be it's USP?
