Life Insurance

Life insurers must transform on several fronts: digitize operations, harness data analytics for innovation, and reinvent distribution. BCG’s expertise in digital transformation can help insurers accomplish their transformation agenda.

Life insurers must combine digital, data analytics, and distribution to master life insurance strategy in the twenty-first century. By building digital and advanced analytic capabilities, they can customize products and create new offerings that are more highly valued by consumers. They can also provide agents with qualified leads and tools to boost their productivity and address consumer needs more holistically. This, in turn, shifts the role of agents from sales to advisories, transforming the distribution chain.

Moreover, by combining human and technological capabilities, they can enable a simpler, faster, and less invasive underwriting process that improves efficiency, cuts costs, and boosts customer satisfaction.
