Know it or not; like it or not; we are in the midst of IR4 – the Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR4). And this is strictly a technology-based knowledge revolution that is disrupting almost every industry in the world, insurance included. Somehow the banks seem more prepared though InsurTech is gaining ground and insurance CEOs are beginning to get tech-savvy and some even tech-speak.

But insurers need to do more. Hence, Asia Insurance Review is partnering with Korea Life Insurance Association, to bring this IR4 in Insurance Conference to the world with the theme: “Fourth Industrial Revolution – Blurring the Boundaries: Survival still for the fittest!” The stress will be to get insurers to step up their game.

The conference will be strategic in getting insurers to understand the deep impact of the changes taking place and to pro-actively prepare for this human-centred technology revolution. It will address the tech challenges in dealing with IR4 as well as provide solutions and case studies from around the world.

It is about knowing the technologies available, be-friending InsurTech and getting the right technology and right talent to be fighting fit and ready to survive and excel in this brave new world of IR4.

The Conference will bring experts from around the world to teach, debate and engage in discussions to find permanent solutions and offer tips to be the fittest with the right 20/20 vision, business models, and human talent to be profitable and sustainable.
