Emerging technologies are changing the world – and our research and work with insurers confirm that they will change the insurance industry in fundamental ways in the process. At SMA, we focus on what all of this means for insurance, when the impacts are likely to be felt, and how insurers can become Next-Gen Insurers positioned for success in the future.

Our ongoing research and strategy work with insurers over the last several years has given us a unique view into how emerging tech is likely to transform insurance – both as individual technologies and collectively. To aid in strategic thinking, this report offers the top ten ways that emerging tech will transform insurance, starting with number ten and then increasing in impact until the countdown reaches number one. 

The Top 10 Ways report covers both property/casualty and life/annuity. The report includes recommendations for insurers to help them proactively plan for bridging to the future by building in capabilities that will achieve near-term goals for improvement while moving forward toward a Next-Gen Insurer model.
