The way financial service providers serve their customers has changed significantly over the past few years. Changing customer needs, new technologies, digital platforms, and new regulations have shown to be key drivers for the changing way of providing financial services.

In the Insurance Industry, initiatives such as ecosystems and digitalization are threatening traditional business models. Therefore, the function of insurers is facing new challenges and increased complexities. How do customers see their insurers and what do they expect from them in the coming 10 years? How do insurers cope with these changing customer demands? And how do developments such as ecosystems and digital platforms influence the function of insurers?
