Earlier this year, the Canadian Institute of Actuaries (CIA) issued a statement on the growing interest in using big data in insurance ratemaking.
The latest buzz phrase in the insurance industry is “embedded insurance,” which presents an opportunity to seamlessly offer protection in real time given a proactive approach to risk management. Underpinning embedded insurance is the ability to personalize insurance. This requires that customers understand the necessity of sharing more data with their insurance providers.
For actuaries involved in the pricing and design of life insurance products, the sales process can be a bit of a mystery. Dominik Briault, FCIA, has seen both sides of the equation, first as a pricing actuary and now as an employee of an estate-planning organization. He joins us to share his experiences and provide advice for others looking to enter this non-traditional area of practice.
