When properly aligned with your firm’s business objectives, automation and analytic capabilities remain some of the best tools carriers can rely on to help weather the challenges presented by our industry’s talent shortage and recessionary environment.
This session will present proven methods of how to address our community’s talent shortage with operational efficiency made possible by recent advancements in robotic process automation. By augmenting already existing automated processes, RPA is emerging as one of the most cost-effective and efficient methods to automate tedious manual efforts taking place in claims processing, underwriting, and billing.
The presentation will also address proven best practice applications that mitigate risk, optimize loss reserves, and defend profitability during a recession. The webinar will conclude by illustrating several examples designed to educate participants on how analytics can provide more accurate insight into the true state of policy profitability, policyholder behavior, and revenue.

A quick glance at any city street will probably show ridesharing drivers using their own cars to ferry passengers to their destinations, e-bikes and scooters traversing the streets along with bikes and cars, and hundreds of people on their phones trying out the Metaverse or looking at NFTs. These are just some of the new risks insurers will need to address for millennials and Gen Zers. This session will offer insurers guidance on how to remain current in an ever-changing world, whether that involves dealing with policyholders with potential unexpected coverage gaps or handling these new risk exposures.

Increasingly, mutual insurers track, monitor, and improve their business through data analytics, dashboards, and key reports.

Insurtech is a catch-all term for investors, but it isn’t really meaningful for insurers trying to navigate the hundreds of insurtech startups currently operating in North America. Insurtechs can help insurers bring more innovative practices in house while providing technology for a fraction of the cost required to build an internal team of experts. This session will discuss the trends, technologies, use cases, and benefits property/casualty carriers are using to accelerate the pace of change in their organizations.
This session will feature an in-depth discussion on inflation, the economy, and interest rate volatility. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the current financial market environment and its impact on mutual insurance companies.
We hear insurance professionals saying, “I know I need to begin to automate my business and operations, but where do I start? With a policy admin system? If so, which one? Or with automated underwriting and rating capabilities?” They’re also asking about when to consider digital portals for customer and agent self-service. This session will address the automation maturity model and roadmap that will help insurers understand automation priorities and sequence based on their current levels of automation.

Stop and ask yourself one question: Where are you on your journey to implement an ESG framework for your organization? As environmental, social, and governance continue to evolve in the insurance industry, many are seeking guidance to get through the process of strategy and implementation and, more importantly, to understand what ESG even is. During this session, Baker Tilly’s ESG and insurance industry specialists will define and give an overview of ESG. They will also discuss the current ESG landscape, including the latest on general reporting and regulations in the industry, and explore the challenges your business and the insurance industry could face with ESG integration.
Mutual insurance companies’ enterprise risk management consists of several key considerations, including the investment portfolio, which supports the mutual’s underlying business. Currently, mutuals are seeing their premiums grow, while [potential] investment market values are seeing decreases. As such, mutuals have had to rethink their investment portfolios and their role for the enterprise. Some mutual have only needed to consider subtle shifts to the portfolio structure while others’ considerations been dramatic, such as allocating toward more “esoteric” asset classes. This session will review how the investment portfolio may be integrated as part a mutual’s enterprise risk, the effect the (expected) investment landscape may have on premiums, and how mutuals can shift their thinking of investments in response to these growing concerns.
