Second-quarter marked a historic shift in society. The price of data exceeded the price of oil. Oil futures contracts went negative on April 20th while the Nasdaq broke even for the year on May 8th.
This shift has manifested as an ever-present stream of talking points on national news. The media, which typically is stylized as narrative, now begins stories with data points like the number of new infections, the number of unemployed, and the ten-year treasury rate.
In a world where data is the new currency, insurers need to have a plan to harness the data they already have, to augment their data from third parties, and to apply powerful analytics tools for prediction. To help guide you with your plan, InsurTech NY is hosting a virtual event on May 21st covering how insurers can use data and analytics to improve underwriting and claims. See the full details below.
