Coffee break


Panel Discussion: How can the auto insurance value chain (insurance companies, reinsurers, technology and service providers) meet the disruption resulting from driverless cars and the growth of mobility-as-a-service - remaining relevant and profitable

  • How to mitigate for what could be dramatic reduction in accident frequency, cost of future accidents and total losses?
  • How will the growth of MaaS disrupt the automobile insurance market as more and more consumers switch to alternative mobility approaches that emphasise on-demand and car-sharing fleets rather than personal vehicle ownership?
  • Will OEMs get into the insurance business? As new exposures associated with the autonomous driving decisions made by their products demands broader liability coverage will OEM’s relationship with the vehicle owner, along with control over robust new driving data, give them new competitive advantages?
