KPMG’s Annual Nordic FS event is in its third year. Let’s dig into the Insurance industry

The pace of change has accelerated. New business models and channels to market are creating big opportunities for the insurance industry, meanwhile the challenges are becoming increasingly complex. In this ever-changing environment, insurers need to move fast and strategically, and draw upon new capabilities and technologies by leveraging a wide ecosystem of partners. They will need to rethink their value proposition, operating models, and customer relationships, as well as find new, innovative ways to use data. They must now, more than ever, drive their transformation agenda forward and adapt to the constantly evolving landscape.
