Insurers priorities

Top challenges facing the insurance industry

According to the Annual Insurance Review,  natural disasters, ESG responsibilities, and cyber risks will be the top concern for insurers. These will be over and above the risks arising from the new-age normal. It includes banking and corporate meltdowns, crypto rollercoasters, Russia-Ukraine triggered supply-chain imbalances. In addition to the claims arising out of regular health and safety risks, construction sector delays, and property market risks.

Climate change, ESG, cyber and the continuing conflict in Ukraine remain centre stage for the insurance industry, creating both new opportunities for insurers and new challenges from a claims and coverage perspective….The headwinds that the economy is creating will also prove a significant challenge. Recessions normally mean more claims against professional advisers. For insurers the challenge is establishing which professions will be most exposed this time around”, said Simon Laird, Global Head of Insurance at RPC.

Back to the Basics! Insurers’ Priorities to overcome these challenges

To fight economic headwinds, it has been back to the basics for most insurers – improve operations excellence and customer experience.

The following levers will be the most effective ways to address both these areas:

  • Automation, a core enabler:Today, technology is no longer an optional, good-to-have enabler as it used to be previously; it is a core enabler now. Insurers can no longer ignore the imperative to automate their processes”, says Ashim Khurana, COO of Cogneesol.

Insurers rely heavily on technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), telematics, blockchain technology, and machine learning (ML). This is to simplify their operations and fortify the processes for efficiency, effectiveness and future-readiness. Claims processing, underwriting, P&C insurance, health insurance, and life insurance are using new-age technologies to streamline processes, and reduce fraud.

  • The power of data analytics: Data analytics have assumed the role of a gamechanger in the insurance sector. Data is available at a staggering scale in all insurance organizations. When harnessed systematically, they aid in risk re-evaluation, loss prevention, customer experience improvement, enhanced efficiency, and productivity, and enable quick decision making. They also lead to better financial performance, identification and creation of new product and service offerings, improved customer acquisition and retention, and competitive advantage.
