Benjamin Franklin is attributed to saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This is more true today than ever. Preventing disease and helping people to achieve better life outcomes is not just a matter of public policy. The insurance industry is rising to this challenge with a renewed focus on better health and financial planning throughout customers’ lifetimes.
Building on the discussions of our 2019 conference, we will delve into public health policy and how the insurance industry can contribute to peoples’ financial health and wellness, for example through investments in disease prevention and more innovative and attractive products. In the conference’s signature ‘View from Above’ session, insurance company CEOs will discuss how they are dealing with these complex challenges—from preparing for future disruptive scenarios to managing today’s diverse and frequently conflicting stakeholder expectations.
