While the COVID-19 pandemic is undoubtedly a human tragedy on a global scale, it is also fast becoming the single biggest catalyst of digital adoption we’ve seen in our lifetime.

Though the topic of digitalization has been talked to death in recent years, many insurers are still notoriously slow in adopting digital technologies.

In this fireside chat, we get in conversation with Rohit Nambiar, CEO of AXA AFFIN Life Insurance, which despite its smaller size and smaller budget managed to capture 49% of the digital life protection market share even before the MCO.

Key Discussion

• How consumer behaviours have shifted?
• Steps taken by AXA Affin to adapt to new realities
• New normal for the insurance sector post-MCO
