Tomorrow’s insurance coverages, business models and risk strategies likely won’t spring from insurance company board rooms – they’re already emerging and growing in the field. Whether it’s new programs, new MGA-centered insurtech models, specialized coverages or new alliances and business models, much insurance innovation begins on the ground and takes hold before established players think to pay attention. In a special three-part cross-media series, AMBestTV and Best’s Review magazine will examine how innovative agents and brokers are reinventing insurance commerce, product development and specialized distribution.
