Takao Matsuda (Director, Senior Managing Executive Officer, Chief Marketing Officer, Head of Customer Proposition, Asian Markets, AXA Life Insurance Co., Ltd. )

The insurance business, which started with the spirit of mutual aid, has established a business model based on risk assessment by utilizing data such as accident rates and disease rates. With the transformation of digital society and the explosion in the amount and types of data, the opportunities for the insurance industry to verify risks based on new data are increasing dramatically. In this key address, we will share the perspectives on the transformation of the insurance business to create a better future, discussing how data contributes to transforming the insurance business model to help solve social issues, what kind of new insurance solutions and business opportunities will open up from data, and how new relationships with customers will go beyond the existing insurance business with examples of AXA’s business operations around the world.
