Kanopi to host March roundtable

Guest speakers in a virtual roundtable

MELBOURNE – 7 FEBRUARY 2022– Kanopi announces an upcoming live virtual roundtable, Innovating for resilience, which will host a panel of industry experts who are set to explore the current and future challenges insurers will face and how to overcome them through digital transformation.

Hollard-backed Melbourne insurtech Kanopi Cover is to host a roundtable panel in March moderated by QBE Ventures Global Head of Strategy and Partnerships Lynn Thompson.

The March 1 “Insurtech trends: Innovating for resilience” session will feature Kanopi CEO and Founder Nigel Fellowes-Freeman, IAG Firemark Ventures Director of Investment Leverage & Portfolio Management Rebecca Schot-Guppy and ClimateAI Solutions Lead Eren Shultz.

They will discuss the impact of the covid pandemic and climate change on claims, how technology can assist with rethinking risk and the changing socio-economic trends affecting the juncture of insurance and technology.

“These changes come with varying degrees of risk for people’s lives, business and the economy, creating a need for new policies, services and approaches to managing risk,” Kanopi says.

“Apart from changes in levels of risk, insurers face disruption of the digital kind. Consumer expectations, distribution, IT architecture, and technologies such as automation and machine learning are creating complexity and opportunity. And so, what does success look like for an insurer in a digital world, and how can it be achieved?”

Kanopi says increasing customer demand for value means technology alone will not create success and the roundtable will discuss how insurers can rethink their role and overcome challenges posed by rising risk, changing socio-economic trends and competition with digital transformation.

“We will also discuss how to balance technological change while maintaining speed-to-market and market presence.”

Founded in 2016, Kanopi says its platform intelligently anticipates consumer needs and its mission is to transform the industry by working with insurance and marketplaces to create one common ecosystem that simplifies insurance.

The roundtable, which includes a Q&A session, will be held at 11.30 am AEST and can be accessed here.
