With the unprecedented rate and scale of change in today’s world, the role of insurance is paramount in ensuring future environmental, social and economic sustainability. However, the insurance industry faces a landscape of increasing disruption: from the impact of new technology; changing customer behaviours and exacting regulations; to increasingly complex and uncertain risks resulting from climatic instability. The traditional insurance business model needs to be resilient in the face of these potentially disruptive threats in order to continue its role in protecting lives, managing and mitigating risks, averting catastrophes and supporting sustainable development. Insurers must adapt, innovate and transform today, in order to ensure they survive and succeed in the future.
