The improvement in cancer survival rates has led to a growing life insurance need for cancer survivors worldwide. To mark World Cancer Day, Manuel Plisson, SCOR Global Life Head of Inclusive Underwriting & Medical Expertise, discusses an inclusive rating approach that could help address this protection gap.
In his presentation at the 2019 SCOR Annual Conference, Patrick Liedtke, Managing Director of BlackRock, examined the challenges of sustainable infrastructure investment in a world of growing unpredictability.
One of the rewards of societal progress is medical advancement and its ability to save and improve lives. As science and technology advance, new frontiers are opening and new challenges are coming into sight, and insurers will have an important role to play.
Technology is transforming the way people live, work and play as well as their expectations. It is also transforming the life and health insurance sector, with insurers exploring how they can deploy technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) within their operations.
