Asia:LIMRA, LOMA to highlight innovations in financial workplace

24 Apr 2017

Success in the Asian market will be dependent upon whether or not financial services companies are staying connected in the rapidly evolving digital age, says Mr Ian Watts, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, LIMRA and LOMA. More than half of the world's population is now online.

A 2016 LIMRA study found that the internet is becoming a more valuable source of information when researching insurance (life, disability, long-term care) and annuity products than financial professionals.

Embracing this disruption is just one strategy operational executives will be focused on at the 2017 LIMRA LOMA Operational Strategies Conference to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on 22-23 May 2017.

The Conference is designed for executives involved in back office operations at financial services and insurance companies in the Asia Pacific. The conference will help companies understand which technology and innovations will have the greatest impact on the industry.

Speakers at the conference include:

  • Robin Speculand, international bestselling author on strategy implementation, who will explore eight critical areas of strategy implementation.
  • Karl Ricanek, co-founder, chief information officer and chief data scientist, Lapetus Solutions, who will discuss the emergence of unique technologies, including a demonstration of “selfie” underwriting.
  • Jeremy Blain, regional managing director, Cegos Asia Pacific, who will use live polling and recent organisational change research to demonstrate what disruption looks like and what it means to the future of your workplace.
  • A panel of executives, discussing key components of a successful talent management strategy, and the role that human resources plays in finding, attracting, and retaining top talent.
