Evolving customer needs – fueled and empowered by technology, individuals and insurance buyers – will continue to shift the demands customers make of their insurance providers. “Customers don’t come to their insurance providers for a specific product, they come to them to help manage the risks they face. You can’t respond to that shift with a product-centric structure,” Mary Trussell, Global Insurance Innovation Lead Partner, KPMG in Canada.
There is little doubt that technology will dramatically transform the industry over the next 5 years. In this environment, continuing linearly with past technologies, processes and business models will likely prove to be the most risky strategy of all. Those who focus their innovation efforts on strategically relevant capabilities will prevail.
