What insurance technology topics can I expect in 2020?

Insurance does not have to be boring! Want to know more about insuring a cannabis grower or how underwriting and claims use drones for handling claims? What kind of risks are there when operating an e-scooter or when renting rooms on AirBnB? Some issues are policy driven, others apply to insurance professionals at the consumer level. No insurance topic is too big or too small— in 2019 we discussed the insurance issues surrounding:

  • Drones
  • Cannabis
  • Car-sharing
  • Ridesharing
  • Uber, Lyft, and TNC’s
  • e-Scooters (Lime, Bird, etc.)
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Internet of Things
  • Autonomous (self-driving) vehicles
  • Wearables
  • InsurTech
  • Travel insurance
  • AirBnB risks
  • Rental car insurance
  • Vacation rental insurance
  • Financial exploitation of seniors and vulnerable investors
  • Cyber awareness training
  • Blockchain
  • Cryptocurrency and Bitcoin
  • Virtual currency
  • Pet Insurance
  • Digital home assistants

Our 2020 focus will begin with key legislation impacting our industry, as well as trending technologies that continue to transform the consumer experience. As new and improved telematics are deployed into our everyday lives through product innovation and user experience, so too will the risk exposures and insurance needs continue evolving. You can count on the A.D. Banker Lunch-n-Learn to be on top of these cutting-edge topics each month.

February and March webinars will include the latest information on the NAIC Annuity Suitability/Best Interest producer training changes, state-by state. as well as how the SECURE Act is impacting financial services.

What is a Lunch-n-Learn?

Have you ever attended an insurance webinar that you thought would be really interesting, but it turned out to be the equivalent of watching AND listening to paint dry? We all have.

Linda McHenry and I both agreed we could do better, and started tossing around ideas for a FUN webinar we could co-host each month—and the A.D. Banker Lunch-n-Learn series was born!

Linda brings decades of experience as a licensed producer, registered rep, professional writer, speaker, and course developer to each topic. My background spans nearly 25 years in insurance education, compliance, and training. We ask the questions YOU want answered, and sometimes ask questions you’ve never even considered. Each webinar is free to attend with the goal of presenting insurance related topics that you as a listener will find interesting, relevant, maybe controversial, but always entertaining and informative.
