In this short video Mandy will introduce ReMark’s key InsurTech solutions, share key highlights of our annual consumer study in light of covid19, and a real life case on BAM (Biological Age Model) implemented with a life insurer. This elaborates how dynamic and ongoing UW innovation could look like, but also added by an appealing consumer App called GoodLife.

Mandy Luo will then join this webinar for a live Q&A.


Underwriting – the simmering revolution

Many have been talking about radical changes to risk selection for several years now, but has revolutionary change really happened at all? John will walk us through the anticipated changes, and discuss what happened: expectation versus reality, and why, and then try and predict the future of underwriting in both the near and distant future.
