For instance, an insurer can auto-enroll a customer based on the on the individual circumstances, collect and allocate premiums and thereby provide low-cost means of retirement provisions.

• The three musketeers: AI, Big Data and ML

The integration of health data from consumers to influence premium payment obligation is making its way into the life insurance sector. This data can be fetched from the external factors and will be accessed with application programming interfaces to support this plan. The carriers that will have ML and AI capabilities will have the advantage to more precisely evaluate portfolio and product risk projections based on health behavior.

This includes the reasons behind delays in creating new products, steps involved in data intake, and why are few customers abandoning the insurance application process. Insurers will have to increasingly leverage data to identify further improvements and drive improved customer experience.
