Pina Albo, chief executive officer of Hamilton Insurance Group, will lead a panel focused on what is needed to make a forward-looking vision reality at an insurtech conference next month.

The GR Innovation and Insurtech conference will be held on November 19 at Rosewood Bermuda.

Accompanying Ms Albo on the panel titled “The Inspiration Injection” will be Jacqueline LeSage Krause, managing director of Munich Re / HSB Ventures; Karen Morris, strategic adviser specialising in innovation strategy and execution; and Ann Petley-Jones, founder and owner, PetaData Holdings Ltd and Riverhead Investments Ltd, and past group chairwoman and CEO of the Eastlink Bermuda Group.

“I’m delighted that we’ve been able to attract these three distinguished women to the GR Innovation and Insurtech conference,” Ms Albo said.

“Each has forged a remarkably successful career in her respective industry. We’ll be looking at what it takes to move from inspiration to application, and what can derail an idea that seems full of potential but falters and dies in execution.

“Given that the focus of the GR Innovation & Insurtech conference is the intersection of insurance and technology, we’ll also consider the common ground between the two industries that leads to true innovation.”

Ms Albo, who last week participated on a panel on the future of insurance at the InsureTech Connect conference in Las Vegas, noted that Hamilton is lead sponsor of the conference, now in its second year, a position taken because of the company’s strategy of leveraging data science and technology to transform underwriting.

“At Hamilton, we aim to embed technology in everything we do, whether it’s at Hamilton Re, our Bermuda platform, or Hamilton at Lloyd’s, our platform at Lloyd’s. Along with AIG and Two Sigma, we’re an investor in Attune, a US-based digital MGA focused on transforming the small commercial insurance market segment.

“Sponsoring the GR Innovation & Insurtech event aligns with our mission and our strategy, so we welcome the opportunity to enable lively and thought-provoking dialogue at this year’s conference.”
