Highlights from the Show
- Lars is a Vice President at Capgemini, and was part of the work in their annual World Insurance Report, which focused on the future of mobility insurance in the 2023 edition
- The question is around what the shifting patterns of mobility mean to insurance, and how insurers can start to take actions today to prepare for a movement from insurance the asset of mobility today, a car, to the experience of mobility tomorrow across different modalities and moments, even if people don’t own cars
- They also look at how we break from the interactive pattern of product development to truly creating coverage that insureds need as their situations evolve
- Innovation has struggled in the industry often because the people responsible for it are separate from the main business, so they struggle to get new ideas into the core of the business
- For example, if we look at embedding insurance into mobility, it’s looking at mobility itself as a service, and then thinking about how an insurer can be helpful across the experience and not just in offering coverage; are there ways the insurer can help coordinate mobility or provide safety guidance and support throughout a journey across different modalities, etc?
- The nature of what is being insured is changing, and CG talks about ACES – Autonomous, Connected, Electric and Shared – when they talk about vehicles in the future
- They see 8x growth for this space, while traditional Auto/Motor insurance will still be there, but will retract
- The nature of risk is changing, too, where it’s not just about Auto Liability, but also software and cyber security risks as cars are connected and software-defined
- They think carriers should think about 4 things
- What is the value proposition carriers should think about offering in the future, and is it based on actual customer behavior and not what we say their behavior is?
- How do we use that value proposition to change our business model?
- What culture and capabilities do we need to have to support this model?
- What is the risk management we need around these new products?
- The report was built with very broad perspectives from across insurance, tech, auto manufacturers and more
