FWU at SZ insurance day 2018

17. Jan 2018

The SZ Insurance Day on January 17, 2018 at Schloss Bensberg was all about current challenges and future strategies. Under the motto "Overall Refurbishment of the Insurance Sector – Demolition and New Construction", the German insurance industry, including Dr. Manfred Dirrheimer, CEO of FWU AG, discussed about the changes due to new business models such as platforms or digital insurers.

Whether the use of robots or new entrants through insurtechs and platforms: The many facets of digitization are changing the insurance industry. Accordingly, the participants followed with interest the speeches and discussion rounds, in which new business models, technologies and trends were discussed.

The speech of Dr. Manfred Dirrheimer created a surprise, as he did not talk about a potentially successful business or product concept in his speech "New market Perspectives in Life Insurance business", but instead called for digitalization not as a guarantor of future business success, but rather as a necessary "survival kit".

"The tools and chances of digitization are available to all market participants," Dr. Manfred Dirrheimer said. "So you have to think about the direction the development is going to take and which setup makes sense for it." From my point of view, the decisive questions are: Who will 'own' the customer in the future in a digitized sales environment of the life insurance sector and are the market participants willing to share the ownership of the customer?
