About the event

The most successful underwriters combine experience with data and analytics to grow premiums and underwrite profitably. Until recently, too much time has been spent manually reviewing and working with submissions to decide what to write and decline.

Join us in New York to discover the new tools leading insurance organisations are using to remove the pain from underwriting and let underwriters concentrate on what they do best.

We’ll discuss case studies and talk to insurers and the companies providing some of the best available tools and applications, and how these all fit together.

How To Register

You can register below for free if you are an Insurer, Broker, MGA or InsTech Corporate/Individual Member.
