Take a look at some of our recently published specialist focused newsletters below.

Insurance Innovation through digitisation

The biggest mistake made in the quest to compete with increased digitization is to jump at quick fix plug-ins offering access to untapped markets or apps that digitise sales and on-boarding. This might look like quick wins but they mostly do not deliver nearly as well as expected, due to the lack of strategic decision making in the selection and implementation of technology based opportunities.

We recently hosted a series of webinars to discuss digitalization from the perspective of innovation and in this weeks thought leadership newsletter we decided to share with you, the thoughts on this topic from a few of the webinar presenters.

SMME – The Lifeblood of the economy

The SMME sector is critical to South Africa’s economic growth, employing around 80% of the African continent’s workforce and supplying just over 20% of SA’s GDP.

The past 12 months have exposed the lack of appropriate insurance products and advice for the SMME market. Right now we have an opportunity, as an industry, to ensure we structure products suited to the constantly changing environment that SMMEs operate in.

In this weeks thought leadership newsletter we look at the specific needs of the SMME sector and some of the approaches from insurers to address their risks.

Technology in the insurance space

Technology was a lifeline during the global pandemic, enabling new ways of working and doing business, creating new interactions and experiences and, I think it is safe to say, technology has forever changed expectations and behaviors across every industry.

This is the first of our new technology themed newsletters, in which we aim to bring you the latest updates in technology innovation in the insurance space.
