Blockchain for Insurance: Beyond Smart Contracts

1:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Blockchain, distributed ledger, and democratized technology strategies will revolutionize financial services across a wide range of products. Nowhere is this more true than in insurance, a category which relies too heavily on outdated, hierarchical, and centralized models to run its businesses. As cultural and technological trends continue, insurers are at significant risk of business model and product disruption—those that lead will win a disproportionate share of the business of the future; those who delay will be irrelevant.

This session will cover the emerging trends in the blockchain and distributed ledger space, will review potential product and service strategies that will disrupt the market, and will chart a strategic path for the insurer of the future.
