Participants will need to address one of the following pain points with their solution.
AXA is currently investigating how to best enhance money monitoring and executing in international insurance programs. International insurance policies for business are complex to issue and manage due to the number of stakeholders involved in the process. The main problem behind international programs is that payment follows different paths, depending on the local regulations, the local broker identity or local payment systems. This leads to multiple issues, including:
– Systemic risk of triggering payment failures or decouple insurance from policy payments
– Difficulty to monitor payments and identify payment glitches
– Difficulty to execute payments
These difficulties lead notably to significant efforts of data reconciliation. AXA is looking for a solution, built on Corda, that has payment and cash flows monitoring, and programmed payment.
How can DLT enable insurers to win the battle with Insurance fraud? Insurance fraud is a global issue resulting in $Billions of unnecessary cost to the industry.
Insurance is based on the principle of mutual benefit and is designed to protect against significant, but uncertain, losses. Insurance fraud undermines this system, as fraudulent applications and claims deplete the funds paid in by the many honest customers to cover genuine losses.
The Insurance industry strives to remove fraud by using machine learning to examine fraud data. The exchange of such data between insurers can produce high quality results, however the industry is limited as it lacks a common language between data exchanges and the need for centralization.
B3i are looking for a solution that can enable the insurance industry to privately and securely exchange data on fraudulent activity and work together to reduce it.
