Digital Insurer's Comments

Life Insurers need to reconsider reservations against deployment of predictive modeling such as competing internal priorities, lack of IT infrastructure and complexity concerns. Business benefits surely outweigh the implementation concerns as driving forces like data availability, technological advancement, and availability of skilled workforce have made the job easier – although establishing predictive modeling capabilities is not a trivial exercise.

P&C insurers have already shown the value of predictive modeling and Life Insures should follow suit in order to gain competitive advantage.
