The Inspiration Injection

Panel led by Hamilton Insurance Group



Enabling innovation through regulation | Embracing possibility, boosting innovation

Bermuda has a leading position in (re)insurance, captives and insurance-linked securities. That has been achieved by taking steps to move forward and gain a lead over other jurisdictions, but how to stay relevant when the industry is changing so much and the insurtech tsunami is here?
• Blockchain and the move toward ICO regulation to create an environment of regulatory certainty
• Regulation as an enabler to turn Bermuda into a global leader in the fintech and insurtech space
• The impact of external influences in Bermuda and how to remain relevant


Analytics for insurance - turning data into your business’ most useful tool

The use of big data analytics in insurance presents exponential opportunities for the industry. Improved understanding of risks can better inform risk reduction, enhance insurability and streamline the overall business transaction process.

However, the (re)insurance industry is facing major challenges when trying to put the vast amounts of data they possess into usable formats. In addition, individuals, firms and regulators face complex trade-offs when balancing the benefits and risks of using personal data from digital sources to calculate insurance premiums. The panel will discuss:

· Big data and its implications for innovation and privacy
· Data processing, cloud processing and turning data into a useable format
· The significance of better risk selection and pricing on this industry and all its players

•What are the current uses of AI within (re)insurance?
•What are the current issues within (re)insurance coverages that may be impacted through the use of AI?
•Transforming insurance business model through AI and its consequences




Innovation in action | Bringing next generation technology to the rescue: augmented, virtual & mixed realities

However, the main risks associated with VR, AR and MR are many and varied and become more complex with each iteration.
