A.M. Best to Sponsor Annual Society of Insurance Research Conference; Director to Lead Innovation-Focused Presentation


OLDWICK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–A.M. Best will sponsor and participate in the Annual Society of
Insurance Research Conference and Exhibit Fair, taking place Oct. 21-23,
2018, at the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans, LA.

Sridhar Manyem, director, industry research and analytics, will lead a
session, titled, “Keeping Up With Innovation,” on Monday, Oct. 22, at
3:30 p.m. (CDT). The session will focus on the rapidly increasing pace
of innovation, which is causing many types of technology to become
obsolete more quickly in favor of newer ones. As a result, insurers
should be more cognizant of these exogenous changes in the industry and
react appropriately. Manyem also will discuss A.M. Best’s view of
prospective trends in the insurance industry, as well as how the
industry is reacting to market changes.

The conference, which is themed as “Elevating Insights to Manage Risk
and Attract Customers,” will address the risks and opportunities
insurance companies face from digital technologies, insurtech start-ups,
disruptive business models and customers’ changing expectations. A.M.
Best will sponsor a networking reception on Tuesday, Oct. 23, at 5:00
p.m. (CDT), and will be exhibiting throughout the event at booth No. 12.
