Asia Conference on Bancassurance and Alternative Distribution Channels – Virtual
Theme: ‘Bancassurance Reinvented’
4-5 May
In today’s digital and customer-centric world, banks and insurers need to run bancassurance on a joint strategy. With the pandemic and resulting lockdowns accelerating the digital needs of customers, insurers must look towards providing seamless online integration and remote service offerings to build high-performing bancassurance in the next normal. How can it be achieved? What are the strategies for successful alliances? Banks and insurers need to build a more effective partnership with InsurTech start-ups in order to compete in a fast-moving tech environment. With the demand for new products growing post-lockdown, insurers can leverage the bancassurance channel in an efficient and cost-effective way.

What are the global trends that are going to affect CFOs in Asia? How can CFOs evolve? What constitutes the new CFO vision and what are the new priorities?
