April 14, 2022 –Individual life carriers are waking up to the importance of customer experience from the perspectives of the policyholder and the producer. This insight manifests most prominently in new business and underwriting, with continuing straight-through processing efforts and growing acceptance of underwriting without medical exams. As life insurers improve the agent and customer experience to meet their evolving expectations, transformation initiatives demand leaders and change agents who understand the customer, various distribution channels, and the end-to-end policy life cycle, while finding ways to marry new and existing technology to achieve success.
