About the Role

The future is closer than you think. The constantly evolving world of autonomous cars, drones, unmanned trains and whatever visionaries like Elon Musk next come up with, all have the potential to hugely disrupt Casualty portfolios. By 2050, many predict that nearly every car will be driverless. Given the meaningful part motor plays in our portfolio, should we be passionate about driverless technology? What are the benefits and risks? How will this affect our clients' portfolios? How will claims be handled? Which markets will lead, which will lag? What role will telematics play? And how do we transition?
