NEW YORK (October 10, 2019) – RIMS, the risk management society®, announces its inaugural RIMS Risktech Forum to be held on December 9th in New York City at Convene, located at 237 Park Avenue, bringing the voice of the consumers of risk management solutions and commercial insurance into the technology innovation conversation.
With insurtech investment on pace for $6 billion in 2019*, many of these technologies are developed without engaging the ultimate end users – the risk professional. Excellence in Risk Management surveys conducted by RIMS and Marsh over the past few years advocate for risk management professionals to take a stronger lead in the technology and innovations being undertaken by insurers and insurtech startups alike. Additionally, RIMS Risk Management Talent 2025 Report notes that “digital literacy” is a sought after competency that will provide value for employers in the future.
RIMS has engaged Audrey Rampinelli, CEO & Co-founder of OnRamp Risk, LLC, a leading advocate for innovation in risk management known for bringing risk managers’ voices to the insurtech ecosystem, to emcee the day. The RIMS Risktech Forum 2019 creates a unique environment where the risk management community is encouraged to take a leap forward in learning about and enabling innovation to solve common problems. Risk professionals, investors, insurers, consultants, brokers, collaboratives, and users of AI, Blockchain and the Internet of Things will share the latest developments and practical tips in a series of conversations.
The program offers insights on topics such as: What Can Risktech Do for Me?, The Future is Here: AI and Decision-Making, Buying Into Blockchain, Maximizing Technology to Minimize Injuries, and Future-Proofing Your Career: Tech Savvy as a Skillset.
“Technology holds the promise of solving a number of risk management professionals’ pain points,” said RIMS President Gloria Brosius, RIMS-CRMP. “The landscape is changing and RIMS is excited to engage leaders in this space to highlight the latest innovations and proofs of concept, as well as what risk professionals are doing already.”
The one-day forum will feature a marketplace of startups and technology innovators for a product pitch-style “Drinks and Demos” reception. Companies interested in having a presence at the RIMS Risktech Forum 2019 should contact George Schwimmer at gschwimmer@RIMS.org.
