2017 ICTC Insurance-Canada.ca Conference - "Disruption = New Realities, New Opportunities

Thought Leader Presentation - “What an Insurer Must Do To Retain Clients” - Sue Britton, CEO & Founder, Fin+Tech Growth Syndicate

The global insurance industry – which generates nearly $5 trillion in revenue – is at risk of losing a share of this market to new entrants entering the market with new technology, unique business models and strong go-to-market strategies. The banking industry has invested more than $19 Billion in new FinTech start-ups. While banking has been disrupted at a faster pace than insurance, the new entrants see insurance as a similar target.

New entrants are leveraging new technologies and offering a better understanding of customer expectations. Some of the newcomers are helping incumbents deliver better end products, while others are direct competitors.

This session will describe what steps an incumbent must take to address the threat. If you choose to partner with the new entrants, how do you work with start-ups? What are some of the new business models you need to consider and new ways to generate revenues? How can you leap-frog other industries that are just responding to this changing market?

FinTech: The Future of Banking

Sue Britton, CEO FinTech Growth Syndicate will be speaking on the panel at this event.

From Apple Pay to robo-advisors that provide investment advice, recent technological innovations are beginning to change the way Canadians bank and key stakeholders in the financial services industry have taken notice. Within the past six years, more than 100 start-ups have formed in the Canadian FinTech sector and, over the same period, the industry has collectively raised more than $1 billion in funding.

However, the rapid adoption of digital financial services has also raised questions on whether regulations should be imposed to combat foreseeable risks.

During this program, our panellists will discuss:

  • What is FinTech and how it will change the way Canadians bank;
  • How does FinTech fit into the Canada’s financial regulatory environment and how will it adapt; and,
  • The latest trends and developments in FinTech.

Lunch will be served at noon and the presentation will begin at 12:30 pm.
