Forum of Insurance Innovations - InnoIns - to be held in Moscow, April 17, 2018

This year's  InnoIns-2018 (Forum of Insurance Innovations) organized by MIG Insurance Today (MIG) with support and participation of the All-Russian Insurance Association (ARIA) will review positive international and domestic experience  and discuss recent achievements in new technologies.

Modern technologies produce a steadily increasing impact on the insurance business across the globe thus giving rise to altogether new business models and services.  Insurers who fell behind bankers at the start of the next stage of technology revolution are now easily catching up with the latter and even outpace them thanks to implementation of a much wider range of innovations in all insurance business processes, which are more sophisticated and versatile, and in all spheres of activities. Indeed, many novelties become obsolete by the time of implementation of the same; one witnesses a real technology boom which radically changes perceptions both of the insurance market and insurance as such. The crisis in economy and in the insurance industry prompts domestic insurers to explore emerging opportunities in detail and to implement innovations in their operations in a more decisive manner and on a wider scale. This interest is driven by a huge potential of insurance high-tech to reduce loss ratio, to improve sales, to create new products and to increase clients' loyalty. 

InnoIns Mission - putting together a new strategic vision, contributing to development, promotion and implementation of more promising advanced information and business technologies in Russia's insurance market.

- to help providers of technologies and off-shelf solutions to obtain deeper understanding of insurers' problems and needs, and to help insurers in their turn to have a realistic assessment of prospects of mastering advanced developments and technological novelties.
