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

The pace of change has quickened. New channels to market and new business models are creating big opportunities. And the challenges facing the insurance sector have become complex. In this ever-changing environment, insurers need to move quickly, boldly, and strategically. They will need to draw on new capabilities and technologies from across a broad ecosystem of partners. They will need to rethink their value proposition, their operating models, and their customer relationships. They will need to reimagine uses of data in ways never imagined before. And they will need to relentlessly drive their transformation agenda forward, pivoting as the environment evolves.

On September 23rd join us to dig into many of these opportunities and challenges. We are excited to host an exciting line up of insurance industry leaders, disrupters, and challengers. 

Register now to hear from and interact with insightful and inspirational speakers.


Together we will explore the future, push the boundaries and discuss how change will impact the insurance market in the Nordics and beyond! 

Panels will deep dive into the following areas:

  • How will our future society impact the way we look at mobility?
  • What disruptive forces will change the insurance ecosystem in the future?
  • How will future customer expectations and technology fuel innovation and collaboration?
