AM Best to Join Panel on Growing Insurtech Adoption in Reinsurance Market at InsiderTech Live

Sponsored by Businesswire

AM Best will participate in a panel discussion on the increasing prominence of insurtech in the reinsurance industry as carriers deploy technology and innovation in their own processes to meet client demand. The event will occur during InsiderTech Live, which takes place May 19-20, 2021.

Carlos Wong-Fupuy, senior director, AM Best, will join the discussion on Thursday, May 20, at 11:50 a.m. EDT (16:50 p.m. BST). The panel discussion, “InsurTech changing the landscape of Reinsurance,” will address these questions and others:

  • Has there been advancements in bettering the value chain to make reinsurers more resistant to extraneous change?
  • Is the reinsurance market still in the early stages of realizing the benefits of insurtech?
  • What are the longer-term implications of not embracing this technology fast enough?

Wong-Fupuy oversees a team of AM Best analysts responsible for the financial ratings of global reinsurance organizations covering the United States, Bermuda and European markets and is actively involved in AM Best’s rating process for the world’s largest reinsurers. Jerad Leigh, chief executive officer and co-founder of Supercede, will join him on the panel.
