ELEKS Will Host the First Edition of Insurance TechTalk Series

Friday – May 22nd, 2020 – A little over four months into the global coronavirus pandemic, all corners of the world are coming to terms with the idea of a “new normal”, and what that might mean for the future.

According to Keith Buckley, Managing Director of Fitch Ratings, COVID-19 represents “one of the most significant credit events” in many people’s lifetimes. So it’s unsurprising that the insurance sector is changing its investment and liabilities strategy, shoring up its reserves against potential COVID-19 claims. PWC surmises that many captive insurers may even need capital infusions soon.

At 6 PM CEST/12 PM EST on June 4th, ELEKS will host an online TechTalk, delving into crisis-driven innovation and the future of the insurance ecosystem. It brings together industry-leading digital innovation managers and insurance experts who aim to tackle the challenges posed by catastrophic events.

Panellists will provide insights on how technology inspires creative thinking to overcome adversity. The notion of survival is not enough. Attendees can count on thoughtful solutions to complex problems to thrive in post-crisis economies. Five tech leaders will dive into the topic:
