How biology and technology can impact our health

How biology and technology can impact our health

We live in a world with increasingly uncertain health outcomes. Individuals from developed economies have been living longer for many decades. However, those gains are beginning to be reversed in some countries, particularly within certain communities. Sensor technology is increasingly being deployed to counter these trends. The computational biology platform LifeQ offers its clients effective outcomes based on intervention and engagement in individuals' health; dynamic health assessment; cost saving and fair pricing; and early disease prediction.

Using human motivation, behaviour tech & karma to engage and improve elderly life

Using human motivation, behaviour tech & karma to engage and improve elderly life

Societies are ageing rapidly. More older people are living alone, and increasingly we are seeking solutions to healthy living around technology, such as sensors apps and alarms. However, these do not address one of the most serious problems confronting many elderly people and their mental health, which is loneliness.

Solutions for an ageing society

Solutions for an ageing society

The fourth in the series, this year's Next Generation Insurance Customer considered solutions for an ageing society. The conference asked four key questions: (1) How will we fund an increasing number of elderly in their upkeep, their health and their care if and when needed? (2) What changes can we expect to see in mortality and morbidity trends in older age? (3) How will our relationship with technology affect how we care and support those in older age? And (4) how can insurance continue to develop products and services for elderly consumers? The answers we got were revealing and thought provoking.

Populism and Economic Policy event: EEAG report 2017

With Brexit, the election of Donald Trump, and a series of European elections, populism and political risk has moved to centre stage. The implications could be significant for the global re/insurance industry, particularly if recent gains from globalisation are reversed. To mark the launch of a report by the European Economic Advisory Group, the Swiss Re Institute hosted a conference with leading European economists to discuss the economic effects of populist politics. Watch the video below.
