TU-Automotive: North America’s Leading Insurers Head to Chicago as Connected Car Motor Insurance Shifts up a Gear
May 20 2015: Executives from North America’s leading insurance companies will head to Chicago this (September 2-3) for the Insurance Telematics USA 2015 Conference and Exhibition. This will be the 5th annual event in which the ecosystem for the connected car and motor insurance converge.
The connected car is gaining more traction with automakers. So much so that nearly all new vehicles have some iteration of a connected offering in the vehicle. This has huge implications to the motor insurance companies as the data collected can be used to calculate risk, this is otherwise known as usage-based insurance (UBI). This is the primary reason that 800+ senior figures will gather at The Insurance Telematics Europe 2015 Conference & Exhibition.
Andrew Pym, TU Automotive’s research lead for insurance telematics said, “It’s a highly interesting time in the motor insurance market. The leading insurers are developing new products and directly aligning with the automakers.”
Pym continued, “This opens up a treasure chest of data that they can work from. At the same time tech. giants are entering the market and could soon be offering their own proprietary products based on the data that they hold. UBI products could soon look very different and have a lot of new players at the center of their development. This is why the entire industry heads to Chicago for The Insurance Telematics USA Conference, to understand this change and make the partnerships to ensure the future of their business.”
Insurers such as The Hartford, Progressive, American Family Insurance, Zurich, MAPFRE, Liberty Mutual and many more will lead discussions at The Insurance Telematics USA 2015 Conference & Exhibition (September, Chicago) with other key players such as Ford, Volkswagen, Acord, ATG Risk Solutions and PCI on how the consumer sits at the center of the solutions.
