On the future of insurance: “I’m very hopeful about the future of insurance. Many carriers are at the forefront of innovation and emerging trends, which could have a far-reaching impact on society. The continuing development of technology as a risk-management tool, combined with the digital transformation and evolution of Big Data, analytics, wearable and mobile devices, and the Internet of Things, will create innovative change across the industry for years to come.”
