Current Trends – Future Impacts

Expert Panel

How are the lifestyles of Kiwis changing? What are the current and projected trends? And how will these impact insurance underwriting, your advice to clients and your business?

Society changes. Lifestyles change. Science keeps getting better at predicting the causal relationship between one thing and another. And in the world of insurance, how we live our lives filters down into data to predict risk factors and to project trends, which ultimately influences product changes, developments and accessibility considerations (and potentially issues) for clients.

Join our panel of Actuarial experts, facilitated by Dr Michael Naylor, to hear about global medical trends and how these may influence insurance options, accessibility and eligibility for your clients in the short term and in the future. Take a look at the macro issues and trends and consider how these may shape the direction of your advice business. And of course, come away with expert knowledge on the key trends and the relationship between these and the advice you give to clients.
