For the insurance industry to fulfill its purpose and its potential, underwriting transformation is needed now.

Underwriting transformation requires carriers to harness technology to support a new way of working, allowing underwriters to focus on key aspects of risk selection and analysis that drive competitive advantage and market differentiation.

To do this well, the underwriter of the future will have additional responsibilities apart from risk selection and pricing. This includes:

The underwriter of the future

Underwriters must be empowered and enabled to do more: be more efficient, more effective, more productive, more creative and more consistently profitable. This means aligning underwriting with an insurer’s operating model, agents and brokers in a dynamic ecosystem of data/decision scientists, customer advocates, sales executives and innovators.

As converging forces shape the industry’s future, EY collaborates with insurers to envision their best future and map the journey to modernize their underwriting abilities and drive them forward.
