Broker-Dealer Special Interest Group Meeting Highlights

Last week, we had the opportunity to host our first Special Interest Group meeting focused on retail broker-dealers that are subsidiary operations of life insurance companies. The session was extremely well attended, with 14 individuals representing nine broker-dealers in participation. We had a wide-ranging discussion addressing myriad technical and business issues these entities face as they look to compete for both talent and customers in a highly competitive climate—one buffeted by a plethora of technical, demographic, and business model changes that are challenging the status quo. Retail broker-dealers perform a key task for life insurers by enabling both the sale of variable products and the integration of third-party manufactured products so critical to creating a competitive portfolio of offerings. Broker-dealers bring together proprietary and non-proprietary products in a managerial and compliance-oriented framework that allows a carrier to navigate the complex intricacies of a business with multiple jurisdictional authorities. In addition to the traditional state insurance regulators, products that have any ties to an equity market also require regulation from federal authorities including the SEC and FINRA.

Reinsurance Market Maintaining Its Firming Trend

Article | July 20, 2022

Despite economic pressures on reinsurers and cedants, nearly all buyers were able to secure coverage during the reinsurance renewal period. However, attachment levels and the cost of ceding risk were higher than most buyers desired, and supply constraints in some lines and territories caused stress not seen in years. As a result, according to Gallagher Re's latest 1st View renewals report, the reinsurance market has maintained its firming trend. Despite mostly positive H1 2022 results, the combination of inflation and rising interest rates has caused reinsurers to adjust their balance sheets and reserves while also taking into account how a recessionary environment may increase claims frequency. These economic factors, combined with sustained loss levels, allowed reinsurers to maintain upward pricing pressure as they sought to reduce their appetite for volatility. Key Contributions to Understanding: Natural disaster capacity decreased overall as reinsurers continued to shift away from low-level layers, which differed by country and region. Reinsurers were seen assessing cedants' inflation-related actions and applying carefully calculated loadings to relevant treaties. The Russian invasion of Ukraine increased interest in cyber and war contract provisions. Long-tail casualty placements remained popular among reinsurers, but there was more debate about ceding commissions than in recent renewals. Higher ILS risk transfer prices have attracted net new capital, but this has not resulted in market softening. The inflation discussions have been detailed and technical, with reinsurers eager to challenge cedants' model outputs. Most reinsurers are assessing reserve adequacy as interest rates rise, in addition to their concerns about primary rate adequacy in the new inflationary environment. They are experiencing effects simultaneously on the asset and liability sides, which has strengthened their resolve to maintain the pricing momentum of the previous two years.

Digital Transformation in Insurance Industry

Article | December 19, 2022

Insurers of the future will play more of a risk avoidance role and less of a risk mitigation one. The seemingly effective yet simple ideas of Netflix, Uber, Ola, Amazon, and many other ideas have forever transformed their industry segments. Digital transformation in the insurance industry is embraced in various ways to address the complex challenges posed by consumers, regulatory, and digital landscapes. To keep up with insureds' demands, insurers have had to digitize various aspects of their operations. Any company that wants to stay competitive in today's market must meet customers where and when they need it. Insurance's digital transformation, powered by artificial intelligence, machine learning, predictive analytics, mobile services, live chat, and other technologies, enables insurers to do just that and will continue to change the industry for years. Insurance Companies to Look at Value Chain through a Digital Lens: Gain First-Mover Advantage: Product introduction to gain a potentially sustainable competitive advantage. To achieve the first-mover advantage, the insurer should have two crucial capabilities: the ability to pinpoint unmet customer needs to guide product development and quickly adapt existing products to market forces. Reduce IT costs to fund innovation: When insurance companies refactor monolithic applications into modular micro services, application maintenance costs are reduced. Grow revenue by differentiating the customer journey: Electronic document capture and processing, robotic process automation (RPA), and robo-advisors improve serviceability and help businesses gain a competitive advantage. Despite market participants' claims that the insurance industry was not an early adopter of digital transformation, new players, business models, and demanding customers are forcing the industry to embrace digital technologies. As a result, the global insurance market is expected to grow by 45% between 2022 and 2025. Modern digital engineering does not occur in a vacuum; new products must be compatible with existing technologies and processes. Ascertain that the development team understands legacy insurance applications and the data required to integrate them with new, digitally engineered products.

Is Your Policy Management System Costing or Saving Money?

Article | August 4, 2022

Insurtech is advancing, and the significance of an effective policy management system cannot be underrated. Policy management professionals understand the payoff it offers to an organization. On the other hand, a policy management system that just isn’t a good fit can prove to be a lot more expensive than previously budgeted. So what is it actually costing you? Is your policy management software updated, or are you still using an old version? Do you know how much it is hampering your financial productivity? Even then, often, an outdated system may not be affecting your process significantly but damaging it in other intangible ways that are just as crucial to business success. Analyze your current system for the following: Financial Implications of the Current System Manual processes for policy creation and management make up the costliest part of running a policy management system. Paper-based solutions incur high costs that can be easily avoided by using digital systems that use automation extensively. With thousands of policies and compliance procedures for your team to manage, costs can add up quickly, especially with printing and distribution costs. In addition to these expenses, manual processes are also responsible for policies being misplaced or lost. It may also result in a large fine for noncompliance if some policies are accessible to unauthorized employees. Indirect Expenses Organized policy management procedures are critical for high operational efficiencies. Policy management systems that require manual supervision can prove to be expensive over the long run as they require employees to monitor them constantly. However, automated policy management systems enable policy teams to optimize their resources better and direct team members to speed up other more crucial processes. Furthermore, modern policy management systems don’t need constant monitoring and require only a one time set-up. This enables teams to allocate resources where they are urgently needed. Wasted Resources If you have an outdated policy management system, chances are it takes a lot more micro-managing than it needs to. Businesses must be able to optimize their resources better but with old and outdated systems, it ends up cutting into the productivity and performance on an everyday basis. In addition, it puts undue stress on employees to keep up with compliance norms and changing regulations and policies. Policy management often requires various employees to pitch in with their inputs, and using an old system that doesn’t offer the option to collaborate can take away a huge chunk of productivity daily. What’s the Bottom Line? Automated policy management systems can undoubtedly save you a lot of time and resources. If you’re facing sky-high costs just to maintain your policy management system, it might be time for a rethink. From automating the lifecycle of policies and procedures to streamlining the management of policies by your agents, consolidating a policy management process with software is one of the best insurtech trends to look out for in 2023. It is probably what your organization needs to move the needle.
