Asia: Technology will change the face of the insurance game
Source: Asia Insurance Review | Aug 2016
A recent global survey conducted by PwC revealed that 23% of surveyed insurers do not deal with FinTech. Many experts say this is too high a figure in today’s increasingly technological world.
Technology is fast becoming more than just a fancy tool to impress. CIOs must now play the vanguard role in the adopting and integrating of various information technology platforms into a wieldy weapon that can give their companies an undeniable advantage in response to the rise of FinTech – along with its subset Insurtech – and avoid playing catch-up all the time to the likes of Banking and e-Commerce, which are constantly rebranding to stay ahead of the curve.
He who tech his chances, wins
