Insurtech Insights Europe 2024 Tackles Underwriting Technologies

Insurtech Insights Europe 2024 will be exploring the latest innovations in underwriting via several panels, keynotes and roundtables at the event, which opens in London next month.

Europe’s largest Insurtech conference has confirmed a number of world-leading speakers, who will drive the discussion on underwriting on March 20th and 21st at InterContinental London – The O2.

More than 6,000 attendees, 400 speakers and an estimated 20,000 meetings, will be taking place over the two-day conference, which sees the world’s biggest names in insurance converge annually in central London.

Janthana Kaenprakhamroy, CEO and founder of Tapoly, will be moderating the panel: Data-Driven Underwriting: Why it is a Win-Win for SMEs and Insurers.

In a recent conversation with Insurtech Insights, she said: “Technology will play an even more critical role in the delivery and management of insurance for the gig economy. We’ll see the widespread adoption of AI and machine learning for risk assessment, pricing, and fraud detection, as outlined. Blockchain technology could also become more prevalent, providing transparency and efficiency in policy management and claims processing.”

Cristina Ferrari, Chief Underwriter of VIG Re, will also be a panelist in the on-stage session: From Art to Algorithm: How Emerging Technologies & AI will impact the Insurance Landscape with Bionic Underwriting.

Giving her perspective on the market, she said: “Currently, we face significant instability and uncertainty due to geopolitical tensions, economic conditions, and the intricate interconnections between risks. This complexity underscores the multidimensional nature of insurance risks today.”
