The Perspective of the Customer

Historically HNW personal insurance client satisfaction has been measured around claim response, pricing and flexible underwriting standards for carriers, while brokers were measured on quality of advice provided, as well as the variety of program offerings presented. However, battered by rising costs and availability of insurance, and having become accustomed to enhanced digital experiences and hyper personalization in other aspects of their lives, clients are challenging these measures.

In this session you will get a different perspective into how clients are viewing their insurance through the lenses of family offices, financial institutions and carriers who have insight into client’s needs, concerns, and wants…so as an industry we can build a playbook on how to communicate and better service the HNW customer.

Threats to Reputational Risk

Threats to reputation are real, impactful, and wide-reaching. A client who has a child in the household has a lot to protect. Specifically, children are susceptible to cyberbullying either as the victim or the aggressor. This presents a special risk to the reputation of the entire family for which the child’s actions, or inaction, reflect upon. This breakout session will provide an overview of the multiple elements creating this perfect storm, discuss if or how personal insurance cover would respond, the wide-ranging impact of a cyberbullying event, and delve into proposed solutions to curb or prevent situations from arising.

Proudly Sponsored by:

A top concern facing homeowners is the increase of extreme weather impacting areas that we normally did not see before.  While so much is out of your client’s control when it comes to these weather-related catastrophes, there is still so much within their control when it comes to safeguarding their homes.  This inspiring session will help you motivate your clients to prioritize their home protection and preventative maintenance before it’s a mandatory recommendation or another catastrophe strikes.  You will walk away with top tips from Risk Managers countrywide on how to help your clients become better risks for the future.

Women in the Workplace Study with McKinsey & Company

Women in the Workplace, the largest study of women in corporate America, is conducted by McKinsey in partnership with LeanIn.Org. The study analyzes the representation of women in corporate America, provides an overview of HR policies and programs—including HR leaders’ sentiment on the most effective diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) practices—and explores the intersectional experiences of different groups of women at work. The data set for 2021 reflects contributions from 423 participating organizations employing 12 million people and more than 65,000 people surveyed on their workplace experiences; in-depth interviews were also conducted with women of diverse identities, including women of color, LGBTQ+ women, and women with disabilities.
