Discussion On Insurance Trends & Taking Risks

May 15, 2019

In an event hosted by 100 Women in Finance on May 9, 2019, insurance veteran Laura Hay, KPMG’s Global Head of Insurance, shared insights on global trends in insurance and reinsurance, as well as risk-taking strategies for women to expand their leadership opportunities in the financial services industry.

The event was hosted by KPMG, a Leadership Council member of 100 Women in Finance, and moderated by Julie McDonald, Senior Manager at KPMG in Bermuda.

Ms. Hay discussed the industry’s shift towards digitalisation, stressing the need for companies to digitise in order to keep up with online insurers. Hay described the importance of collecting and utilising data through insuretechs and blockchain solutions to improve business agility.

Shifting to her own career successes, Hay talked about her passion of helping to develop and promote women in financial services for leadership roles, through her new blog series, Mind the Gap.

Designed to inspire women through sharing stories, the series features global women pioneers in finance and insurance who discuss career progression, professional failures and successes, and why women should embrace taking risks to ensure professional growth.
