JIF 2022: Leaning Forward into a Changed World
By Deena Snell, Director of Research Operations & Membership, Triple-I
Insurance industry decision makers and thought leaders gathered yesterday for the day-long Triple-I Joint Industry Forum (JIF) in New York City to discuss opportunities and challenges across the insurance landscape.
“The world is getting more risky,” Triple-I CEO Sean Kevelighan said in his opening remarks, “and when the world gets more risky people want answers and solutions.”
A recurring theme throughout the event – which featured panels on climate and cyber risk; legal system abuse; diversity, equity, and inclusion; and the impact of current economic conditions on insurers and policyholders – was the importance of moving from a focus on assessing and repairing damage to one of predicting and preventing losses and promoting policyholder resilience.
Kevelighan and State Farm CEO Michael Tipsord had a one-on-one conversation about how the events of recent years – from the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent supply-chain disruptions to international conflict and inflation levels not seen since the 1970s – have contributed to shifting customer and employee behavior and expectations.
