Underwriters know better than anyone the importance of taking the long view. But most research into underwriting captures just a single moment. Longitudinal underwriting studies are shockingly rare.

That’s part of what makes this one so exciting. Accenture and The Institutes have teamed up to conduct a unique underwriting survey captures how underwriters view the state of underwriting within their organizations. What is especially unique about this study is that it includes questions that were included in our previous underwriter surveys of 2008 and 2013. This gives us an almost unique perspective into how the outlook on underwriting has changed since 2008,

The full results of the study will be coming out soon, but at the InsureTech Connect conference this month, Accenture and the Institutes shared an early peek into its key findings around such topics as underwriting investments, technology, quality, and talent. You can find a video of the discussion and a short preview of the upcoming survey results below.

Keep your eyes peeled for more on this exciting study.

In the meantime, if you’d like to discuss the future of underwriting, I would love to hear from you. You can reach me here.
