Breakout session 1.45PM - 2.45PM

Be Confident, Be Courageous: what insurance do customers really need?

There has been some recent reports and commentary about how much risk Kiwis are exposed to by not taking cover. This panel will explore ideas to revolutionise life insurance and make it accessible to all, how to be brave and how to demystify and simplify life insurance cover to meet customer need through accessibility, quality and affordability. What part should social care play and how can we balance the settings between government social policy and private sector insurance to meet the individual needs of New Zealanders?


Breakout session 2.45PM - 3.45PM

Is there a Golden Egg? Balancing of technology, legislation and innovation

Legislation and technology is changing the distribution landscape at rapid pace, with different demographics favouring different access with ‘no advice’ channels and underwriting being delivered through wearable tech. How does the industry balance the support of the human touch with the convenience of AI and technology driven solutions? 


Feel free to attend the breakouts in other areas of focus if there are other sessions you are interested in. See the full programme for what's on over the three days.
